Professor for Ecotoxicology and Environmental Sciences at the University of Gothenburg, with a main interest in regulatory (eco)toxicology and risk assessment of complex exposure situations.
Assistant Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee. My lab focuses on: 1) the factors that influence patterns of biodiversity with a specific focus on plant genetic variation, genotypic diveristy, and phylogenetic diversity. 2) The impacts of plant genetic variation and genotypic diversity on associated biodiversity and ecosystem function. Recipient of the Australian Research Council Future Fellow and Rising Star Leadership Fellow.
Emily Bernhardt is a biogeochemist who is broadly interested in the capacity of ecosystems to retain nutrients and energy in the face of human accelerated environmental change. The bulk of her research examines the effects of land use change and chemical pollution on the structure and function of aquatic ecosystems and the potential for restoration and mitigation approaches to reverse ecosystem degradation.
Professor Bunn is the Director of the Australian Rivers Institute at Griffith University in Brisbane. His major research interests are in the ecology of river and wetland systems with a particular focus on the science to underpin river management, and he has published widely on this topic.
Professor and Chair in Public Policy, Crawford School of Public Policy, Australian National University. Editor in Chief, Solutions (www.thesolutionsjournal.org). Senior Fellow, Stockholm Resilience Center, Stockholm, Sweden; Senior Fellow, National Council on Science and the Environment, Washington, DC; Affiliate Fellow, Gund Institute for Ecological Economics, University of Vermont; deTao Master of Ecological Economics, deTao Masters Academy, Shanghai China
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.
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.
Full Professor in Conservation Ecology, Stellenbosch University. Core team member of the DST-NRF Centre of Excellence in Invasion Biology. Chair of HERS-SA board. South African representative of ISOMED and founding member of the IUCN Mediterranean-Type Ecosystem Thematic Group (MTEG). Past President, South African Association of Botany. Core research foci: ecological restoration, biological invasion, general ecology.
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 have been a marine ecologist for 35 years, publishing over 250 scientific peer-reviewed papers. My research explores the relationships between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, using coastal habitats as an experimental system. I also use a combination of sustained observations, experiments and modelling to investigate the responses of biodiversity and ecosystems to climate change, including interaction with other impacts such as over-fishing and inappropriate coastal development.
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.
