Kent Nicholas

Agrohistologist, Biologist

As the registered agrohistologist for Terra Technologies, Mr. Nicholas provides certified analysis of seed identity, purity, and germination for all biological materials used in biotechnical engineering and reclamation projects.  He contributes to the development of new standards and procedures relating to the quality of native grasses and wildflowers, and maintains participation in the Official Association of Seed Analysts receiving annual updated training and reference materials.

Mr. Nicholas participates in the performance of greenhouse trials to determine the optimum combination of plant material ratios for a soil system.  His experience is integral to the determination of indigenous pioneer seed germination patterns, and thus provides input to the specification of plant materials for each project.  His expertise and training in plant taxonomy is instrumental in the identification of native and introduced plant materials.
