Forests and the Global Carbon Cycle

February 28 - December 31, 1969 Host US Forest Service International Programs Seminar Series


About the Speaker 
Yude Pan is a Senior Research Scientist of the US Forest Service, Northern Global Change Program and an associate faculty and graduate student advisor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Science, University of Pennsylvania.  She leads a research team studying drivers and processes responsible for past and prospective changes in terrestrial carbon stocks.  Her research interests primarily include: forest carbon analyses, the global carbon cycle, global change biology, forest responses to multiple environmental changes and disturbances, climate-vegetation feedbacks, and ecosystem models.  Her research integrates intensive field studies with modeling approaches, combining strengths of both process- and statistical-based models with remote sensing observations and measurements for understanding ecosystem functions and C dynamics across multiple scales of organizations. She has editorial duties for peer-review journals including Board of Editors of Ecosphere, Journal of Ecological Society of America, and Associate Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Acta Ecologica Sinica.  She is a member of the U.S. Global Change Research Program “Carbon Cycle Science Steering Committee”.
