Rebecca McCulley is a faculty member in the Department of Plant & Soil Sciences at the University of Kentucky. She is trained as a grassland ecosystem ecologist. Rebecca's research program explores how human land use interacts with climate, soils, and biota in grass and shrub-dominated ecosystems to impact the storage and cycling of nutrients at both local and regional spatial scales. She also teaches classes in plant and soil sustainability, agriculture and climate change, and agroecology.
