Biogeography and Climate Change

     UHM Associate Professor, Dr. Beilman, will discuss decades of work as a geographer & environmental scientist, covering his fieldwork in Russia, the Canadian Arctic, and Antarctica. As Dr. Beilman explains: “The Antarctic Peninsula is one of the Earth’s fastest warming regions and is experiencing rapid ecological change. During a five week research cruise in March 2020, he visited sites along four hundred kilometers of the western Peninsula studying plants and soils. He will describe his work using a drone to observe the continent’s surface & discuss the implications for changes in the Southern Ocean, marine ecosystems & plant growth on land.”
     Dr Beilman holds a PhD from UCLA, a MSc from the University of Alberta in Canada, followed by post-doctoral study at Queen’s University in Belfast, UK. He was born & raised in western Canada & spent his early days “appreciating the serene northern forests & majestic Rocky Mountains of western North America.” His PhD dissertation was on carbon hotspots in West Siberia, Russia.
