Dr. Gabriel Maltais-Landry – Academic Liaison, maltaislandryg@ufl.edu

Gabriel’s work focuses on the effects of agroecological practices on soil fertility and soil health. More precisely, he works on the potential of cover crops, organic amendments and livestock integration to improve nutrient management and agricultural sustainability in a variety of agroecosystems. Originally trained as an aquatic biogeochemist, his work shifted towards nutrient cycling in agriculture during his PhD, which focused on the effects of cover crops and organic amendments on soil phosphorus cycling in California. His work expanded to include how nitrogen and greenhouse gas emissions were affected by manures and cover crops during his postdoctoral position in British Columbia. His work now embraces the complexity and uniqueness of Florida’s diverse agroecosystems.
