Martha Apple is an Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at Montana Tech. During 2012/13 she spent her sabbatical in Glacier National Park, New Zealand and Scotland, conducting snowfield plant studies and collaborating with the research teams there. Her Ph.D. is in Biological Sciences from the University of Rhode Island, while she earned her MS and BS degrees in Botany and Geography from the University of Montana.

Research focus: Dr. Apple's research focus is on the responses of plants to climate change.  I began working with alpine plants and climate change through the GLORIA (Global Research Observation Initiative in Alpine Environments) program, and recently started investigating snowfield plants and their functional traits with respect to climate change.
