Anthony Davis is associate dean for research at OSU’s College of Forestry. Davis joined OSU from the University of Idaho, where he served as the director of the Center for Forest Nursery and Seedling Research and as an associate professor of native plant regeneration and silviculture in the Department of Forest, Rangeland, and Fire Science.
Under Davis’ guidance at Idaho, the Center for Forest Nursery and Seedling Research became a world-recognized leader in forest nursery science. Davis, who earned his doctorate at Purdue University, has conducted research to improve nursery production practices of native plants, restoration of degraded forests, and has studied the effects of environmental stresses on seedling growth and development.
While at Idaho, Davis received a number of honors. In 2015 he received the Dr. Arthur Maxwell Taylor Excellence in Diversity Award and in 2013 was named the Tom Alberg and Judith Beck Chair in Natural Resources, the first endowed chair at the institution.
In his position at OSU, which began on June 30th, Davis is responsible for the strategic development and the execution of innovative, effective, and respected research programs to help achieve the research mission of the College, Forest Research Laboratory, and the Institute for Working Forest Landscapes.
