Lecture I

Report titleSoil greenhouse gas emissions and their response to climate change

ReporterProf. Jianwen Zou (Nanjing Agricultural University)

Time9:00-10:00 AM, 17th December (Monday)

VenueLecture Hall 221, Institute of Surface-Earth System Science (Building No. 16), Tianjin University

About the speaker: Prof. Jianwen Zou holds a doctorate in Soil Science from Nanjing Agricultural University and a doctorate in Ecology from Rice University. He is currently Vice President of School of Resources and Environmental Sciences, Nanjing Agricultural University, China. Prof. Jianwen Zou is mainly engaged in the research of terrestrial surface carbon and nitrogen processes and global change. He has published more than 90 papers in Ecology Letters, Global Change Biology, Environmental Science & Technology, Journal of Ecology, Global Change Biology Bioenergy, and others.

 

Lecture II

Report titleInsights into ecosystem functioning from global databases of plant, soil, and fungal nitrogen isotopes

ReporterProf. Erik A. Hobbie (University of New Hampshire, USA)

Time10:00-11:00 AM, 17th December (Monday)

VenueLecture Hall 221, Institute of Surface-Earth System Science (Building No. 16), Tianjin University

About the speaker: Prof. Erik Hobbie obtained his bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Yale University in 1987, and obtained his master's degree and doctorate in Environmental Science from University of Virginia in 1994 and 1997, respectively. He is a research professor at the Earth Systems Research Center at the University of New Hampshire, USA and currently a visiting scholar at Kyoto University. Prof. Hobbie uses stable isotope natural abundances to understand carbon and nitrogen dynamics in forests, particularly the role of mycorrhizal fungi. He has published more than 60 papers, including five with his father. These papers have been cited more than 5000 times.

 

Lecture III

Report titleCommon mycorrhizal networks (CMNs): Their concepts and eco physiological significance

ReporterProf. Xinhua He (Southwest University)
