interview with Dr. Camille Parmesan. An important interview brought to us by our ATSNN Editor n Chief Valhall.
EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Dr. Camille Parmesan on Climate Changes, Biosystems, and U.S.
Camille Parmesan, Assistant Professor of Integrative Biology at University of Texas at Austin, has worked extensively in researching the effects of
global warming and weather changes on biological systems. Her works extend from studying the population distribution ranges of butterflies as
associated to changing weather patterns, to acting as a scientific advisor to the White House on climate change effects on biological systems, to
being a contributor on the Working Group II of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Dr. Parmesan's most recent paper "A globally
coherent fingerprint of climate change impacts across natural systems" became a "most highly cited" paper by ISI Web of Science in May of this
year. In order to achieve this distinction the paper must be cited among the top one-tenth of one percent (0.1%) in a current bimonthly period. Papers
selected for this distinction tend to signal important new trends in research and "serve as leading indicators of scientific advance." Dr.
Parmesanís observations and conclusions are informative, revealing, intriguing and alarming. It is with great pride that ATSNN brings her findings and
message to our readers.
