2024 Spring Seminar Series – Nana Tian

April 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The 2024 Spring Seminar Series will feature Nana Tian, associate professor in the College of Forestry, Agriculture, and Natural Resources at the University of Arkansas at Monticello. Dr. Tian will give a presentation titled “Developing and harnessing climate-smart commodities from hardwood restoration for small and underserved landowners in the Southern Bottomland Region” on Wednesday, April 17, at 11 a.m. in Room 2217 of the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment Building located at 602 Duncan Drive, Auburn, AL.

Dr. Tian is hosted by Dr. Daowei Zhang, associate dean of research and the Alumni and George W. Peake Professor of forest economics in the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment. Tian will explain her project supporting the practices of climate-smart processes and available incentives. She will focus on how producers, underserved landowners, and early adopters implement climate-smart practices — measuring and monitoring carbon and greenhouse gas (GHG) benefits.

Dr. Tian’s research focuses on human dimension and economic issues within natural resource management. Her current projects include econometric models of private landowners, invasive species, forest certification, ecosystem valuation, and sustainable economic development. She has served as the principal investigator (PI) on multiple grant-funded projects, securing more than $4 million in extramural funding. Tian has also produced more than 40 peer-reviewed journal articles.

Faculty, students, and the public are invited to attend this program. Advanced registration is not required.  Refreshments will be available after the seminar. Parking is available on the third and fourth floors in the South Quad Parking Deck across from the CFWE Building on Duncan Drive.
