By February 5, 2018No Comments

The work of Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences research team, led by Alumni and Solon Dixon Professor Hanqin Tian, was recently the focus of the prestigious Eos Research Spotlight.

Eos, a publication of the American Geophysical Union, is a leading news source for information related to the Earth and space sciences.

The paper titled “Integrating Herbivore Population Dynamics into a Global Land Biosphere Model: Plugging Animals into the Earth System” was co-authored by Tian and former doctorate student Shree Dangal, among other Auburn researchers, including Shufen Pan and Jia Yang.

Tian’s research team showed that grazing herbivores have a profound impact on carbon dioxide and methane exchanges between Earth and its atmosphere, as well as on global climate.

Recently published in the Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems, or JAMES, the study highlights the important role that these animals play in their local and global ecosystems.
