Dr. Leng will address the following topics at the seminar:

· Geography, environment, and climate background of the Silk Road

· Change of climate and their impact on the Silk Road

· Ongoing environmental research along the Silk Road

Professor Qin Leng teaches biology and environmental science courses at Bryant University. Her research on plant science and climate change has taken her around the globe with collaborations in China, Japan, Sweden, Austria, and United States. She has authored/co-authored over fifty peer reviewed scientific journal articles, books, and book chapters, and currently pursue a collaborative project on environmental changes along the Silk Road.
