Li Qinglin

Li Qinglin, born 09 May, 1971. Graduated from the University of Toledo (UT), Ohio, USA and earned his PhD in ecology at the department of environmental sciences UT (2006). The carbon modeling and forest inventory analyst at the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations, British Columbia, Canada, and also adjunct associate professor at UT. Broadly interested in forest management and policy, ecosystem science and landscape ecology. Main research interests are in forest management and policy, forest landscape fragmentation, ecosystem carbon and water fluxes, modeling and climate change. Forest management and policy, carbon modeling and climate change research have been funded through different research grants and has been increasing attention in forestry, forest management and carbon/water cycle. In 2006 joined Timberline Natural Resource Group where he first time brought carbon analysis into traditional forest management planning and analysis process. Since 2008 worked for both provincial and federal governments in Canada on carbon science, especially forest sector green house gas emissions, forest carbon offsets, and their related policies. Reviewer for over five dozens of manuscripts for over a dozen scientific journals. Author and co-author of more than 20 peer-reviewed papers since 2000. Selected recent publications: Restoring ecosystem carbon sequestration through afforestation: a sub-tropic restoration case study In "For. Ecol. Manag.", 2013; Respiratory carbon losses in a managed oak forest ecosystem In "For. Ecol. Manag.", 2012; Organic matter loading affects lodgepole pine seedling growth In "Environ. Manag.", 2012; Influence of timber harvesting alternatives on forest soil respiration and its biophysical regulatory factors over a 5-year period in the Missouri Ozarks In "Ecoystems", 2011; Mixed litter decomposition in a managed Missouri Ozark forest Ecosystem In "For. Ecol. Manag.", 2009; Edge effects on fire spread in a disturbed Northern Wisconsin landscape In "Landscape Ecol.", 2008; Effects of timber harvest on carbon pools in Ozark forests In "Can. J. For. Res., 2007; Areas influenced by multiple edges and their implications in fragmented landscapes In "For. Ecol. Manag.", 2007.
