I am Assistant Professor of Soil and Plant Community Restoration in OSU's School of Environment and Natural Resources. My research focuses on developing methods for the restoration and management of ecosystem properties and functions including vegetation community composition, habitat structure, fire regimes and carbon and nutrient cycling. Current research sites include temperate, semi-arid and tropical ecosystems.
I am a paleobiologist. My main research focuses on reproductive strategies and macroevolution, particularly on the relative contributions of biotic interactions (e.g., parasitism) and abiotic factors (e.g., climate) in driving these large-scale patterns. Other interests are quantitative methods to study biostratigraphy, intraspecific variability and paleobiology in general. My main tools for these purposes are invertebrates, mainly ammonoids (extinct cephalopods) and parasitic flatworms.
Head of Conservation and Research at the National Botanic Garden of Wales and Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) at Aberystwyth University.
Head of Ecosystems and Biodiversity in the Department of Environment, Earth and Ecosystems. Director of the NERC Methane Network 'MethaneNet' . Specialises in aspects of ecosystem science and biogeochemistry relating to biosphere atmosphere exchange.
I received a B.A. in chemistry from Cornell University in 1980, an M.S. (entomology) in 1984, and a Ph.D. (entomology/crop production and physiology) from Iowa State University in 1988. My research focuses on insect ecology (esp ecophys) across basic and applied areas. Active work includes forensic science (decompositional ecology and blow fly physiological ecology), conservation biology, plant-insect interactions (esp. photosynthesis and insect injury) and pest management theory.
Professor, Department of Biology, Texas State University - San Marcos, and Adjunct Professor, Department of Earth and Environment, University of Western Australia, Perth, WA. Formerly a Senior Scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. PhD University of Michigan 1982. My research has focused on understanding the causes of spatial and temporal variation in species diversity, primarily of plants, but also of animals, in terrestrial, aquatic, and marine systems.
The Director of the Integrated Plant Protection Center at Oregon State University and Professor in the Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology, State IPM Coordinator for Oregon and Associate Director of the Western IPM Center. Leads an international research and extension program in agriculture, leading to a sustainable intensification of production that contributes to food security.
Lian Pin is Assistant Professor of Applied Ecology and Conservation at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich). He is a tropical ecologist by training. He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University (2008), where he studied the environmental and policy implications of oil-palm development in Southeast Asia. Since then, his research has focused on key scientific and policy issues concerning tropical deforestation and its impacts on carbon emissions, biodiversity and people.
