Professor Cathy Whitlock from Montana State University (MSU) will be visiting Monash University on March 22, 2012. She will be giving a late-afternoon talk (3-4pm) titled "Holocene fire-climate-vegetation linkages in temperate forests: what's known and what's not" in the Law Building (12/L1). Professor Whitlock is the Director of the Montana Institute on Ecosystems and Professor of Earth Sciences at MSU and a nationally and internationally recognized scholar. Her contributions and leadership activities are in the field of past climatic and environmental change, and she has published over 140 reviewed journal articles and book chapters on this topic. Her current research sites extend from Yellowstone and the western U.S. to New Zealand, Tasmania, and Patagonia. She is past President of the American Quaternary Association and serves on US and international advisory committees concerned with climate change. In addition, she has been on NSF review panels and editorial boards for leading disciplinary journals. She currently leads a team of scientists and student researchers on an NSF-funded WildFIRE PIRE (Partners in Research and Education) project; an international partnership focused on the causes and consequences of fire in the past, present, and future in Australia, New Zealand and the western US. We invite you to join us for the seminar.
