Li Qinglin, born 09 May, 1971 in China. Undergradute studies in Forest Science, with BSc in Forest Science (1993), graduate studies in Forest Ecology, with MSc in Forest Ecology (1996), at the Northeast Forestry University, School of Forestry, in the city of Harbin, Heilongjiang province, China. Graduate studies in Urban Forestry, with MSc in Urban Forestry (2002), at the Southern University and A&M College, the Graduate School, College of Agricultural, Family and Consumer Sciences, Department of Agricultural Sciences and Urban Forestry, in the city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the United States. Graduate studies in GIS and Applied Geography, with MSc in GIS and Applied Geography (2004), PhD studies in Environmental Studies, with PhD in Environmental Science (Landscape Ecology) (2006), at the University of Toledo, College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, Department of Environmental Sciences, in the city Toledo, Ohio, the United States. Team Leader for carbon modeling and forest inventory at the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations, and Rural Development of British Columbia, in the city of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada (since 2008 to present time). Affiliated Associate Professor in Forest Inventory at the University of Toledo, College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, Department of Environmental Sciences, in the city Toledo, Ohio, the United States. 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 in British Columbia, where he first time brought carbon analysis into traditional forest management planning and analysis process. Since 2008 worked for both provincial and federal Government of 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: "Areas influenced by multiple edges and their implications in fragmented landscapes" In "For. Ecol. Manag.", 2007; "Effects of timber harvest on carbon pools in Ozark forests" In "Can. J. For. Res.", 2007; "Edge effects on fire spread in a disturbed Northern Wisconsin landscape" In "Landscape Ecol.", 2008; "Mixed litter decomposition in a managed Missouri Ozark forest Ecosystem" In "For.
