Cameron Carlyle is an assistant professor in the Department of Agricultural, Food and Nutritional Science at the University of Alberta. He completed an MSc at the University of Akron, a PhD in ecology at the University of British Columbia, and a postdoc at the University of Alberta. Cameron’s research focuses on ecosystem goods and services in rangelands. In particular, he studies the effects of agricultural land-use and cattle grazing on carbon storage and sequestration, forage production and biodiversity. The aim of this research is to support grassland conservation, increase sustainable beef production and improve our understanding of the ecological processes in these systems. Cameron also does research on native bees, ants, invasive plants and agroforestry. He teaches courses on rangeland conservation and plant ecophysiology. In his spare time, Cam can be found at home with his wife and son, in his garage tinkering at woodworking, or running in Edmonton’s river valley.
