Using Stable Isotope to track the Animal Migration (使用稳定同位素追踪动物迁徙)

Prof. Keith Hobson, University of Western Ontario, Canada.

Seminar Hall,SKL (亚热带农业生物资源保护与利用国家重点实验室学术报告厅)

15:00-16:30, November 27th (Tuesday)

Dr. Hobson was a Senior Research Scientist with Environment Canada for 25 years, and is currently Professor of Biology at University of Western Ontario. Dr. Hobson developed tools and specialized in using stable isotope approaches to solving ecological questions in animal conservation and ecology with an emphasis on migratory connectivity birds and insects. Dr. Hobson is a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.

Within a theme of adaptations to global change, Hobson’s research is at the interface between applied animal ecology/conservation and Biogeochemistry with particular emphasis on the development and use of naturally occurring stable isotopes and other intrinsic markers to answer otherwise intractable questions. This approach has been applied to a broad range of research questions ranging from the ecology of individuals to communities at local to continental scales. Hobson’s most recent emphasis has been on addressing nutrient allocation strategies in birds and full life-cycle conservation of migratory birds and insects through the development and use of isotopes. This work seeks to examine how anthropogenic changes are influencing migratory organisms throughout their annual cycles and to identify best conservation practices.

Hobson教授是加拿大皇家科学院院士,加拿大环境部高级研究员,现任西安大略大学生物学教授。 Hobson教授开创了使用稳定同位素的方法解决动物保护和生态学中的问题的先河,尤其是鸟类和昆虫的迁徙连接方面。在应对全球变化的课题中,Hobson教授的研究是应用动物生态学/保护学和生物地球化学之间的交叉地带,其重点是关于天然稳定同位素和其他内在标记的开发和使用,以回答其他难以处理的问题。这种方法已被广泛应用于许多研究,从生态到群落到大陆尺度的生态学。 Hobson最近的重点是通过开发和使用稳定同位素来解决鸟类的营养分配策略以及候鸟和昆虫的完整生命周期保护。这项工作旨在研究人为变化如何通过年周期影响迁徙生物,并确定最佳保护策略。
