Anja Linstädter is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Cologne and head of the Range Ecology and Management Group. Her research focuses on global change impacts on managed terrestrial ecosystems. She is particularly interested in the interactive effects of global change agents - such as grazing and drought - on the functioning of African drylands, and in consequences for ecosystem service delivery. Ultimately, her research aims at designing ecosystem-based management strategies.
I'm an assistant professor at Cleveland State University. My primary area of research is the ecology and biogeochemistry of temperate forests and grasslands, with an emphasis on plant-environment interactions. For example, I've studied the impacts of climate change, land management, and diversity loss on ecosystem functions of North American grasslands. I frequently use measures of plant functional traits or stable isotope ratios to better understand a variety of ecological concepts and biogeochemical processes, including how plants respond to the environment and interact with cycles of water, nutrients, and carbon.
Undergraduate degree in Meteorology from University of Buenos Aires in 1983 and PhD in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Washington in 1989. After postdoctoral positions in Canada and UK, joined UNAM in 1995. Her initial research interests in cloud microphysics and aerosol-cloud interactions shifted to urban air quality after moving to Mexico City, organizing a first field campaign in 1997 focused on particle composition including black carbon, potentially affecting regional climate and cloud droplet activation and precipitation development. She is author of 85 peer-reviewed publications and has supervised 5 PhD, 10 Masters and 2 undergraduate students, and 9 postdoctoral associates.
Member of scientific advisory panels of the International Commission on Clouds and Precipitation, International Global Atmospheric Chemistry Programme, World Climate Research Programme, Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC), Mexican Academy of Sciences and is a Senior Associate of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics. Member of the Editorial Board of Atmosfera since 2008, serving as Editor in Chief from 2010 to 2012.
Lead Author of the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), contributing to Chapter 2, Technical Summary and Summary for Policymakers. In 2007, the IPCC was awarded a joint Nobel Peace Prize. Co-chair of the Regional Assessment of Short Lived Climate Pollutants for Latin America and Caribbean.
Dr Helen Roe is a Reader in Physical Geography in the School of Natural and Built Environment, Queen's University Belfast. She received her PhD (Quaternary palaeoecology) from the University of Cambridge.
Her research interests centre around the reconstruction of late Quaternary environmental change in wetlands and coastal environments. Major research foci include (i) applications of benthic protozoans (e.g. testate amoebae and foraminifera) and diatoms in biomonitoring and restoration; (ii) the use of palaeoecological, palaeolimnological and geochemical approaches for understanding long-term climate and sea-level change; iii) use of quantitative, multi-proxy techniques to aid palaeoenvironmental reconstruction.
She is an Adjunct Research Professor, Department of Earth Sciences, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada and a Co-Director of the Queen's University Centre of Canadian Studies.
Senior Researcher at the National Museum of Natural Sciences in the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) from 2010. His research interest is on aquatic biogeochemistry, focusing on studying how global change alters ecosystems functioning at different scales. Particularly he is interested on quantifying biogeochemical processes that transform C, N and P, mainly on aquatic ecosystems subject to severe environmental stress. He previously was Researcher at the Insitute of Natural Resources (CSIC) from 2007 to 2010 and Professor at the Instituto Tecnológico de Sonora (Mexico) from 2001 to 2007. He was a fellow of the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation and the Education Department of Madrid Region. He obtained his in Geosciencies at the Authonomous University of Madrid (UAM) in 2000.
Laboratory Fellow at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), and Lead Scientist at the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL), a scientific user facility located at PNNL. Research interests emphasize coupled hydrologic and biogeochemical processes as they control water quality, ecosystem health, and contaminant transport and fate. Collaborates with multidisciplinary teams to perform integrated computational and experimental research across a wide range of physical scales from molecules and cells to aquifers and watersheds. Was selected by the National Ground Water Association to serve as the 2010 Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecturer, in which role he presented 65 invited lectures across North America and Europe.
I am a plant ecologist and my interests include forest structure and dynamics, species diversity, plant traits and relationships with environmental gradients. I am currently an associate researcher at the National Institute for Amazonia Research (INPA) in Manaus, Brazil.
