Pioneering environmental scientist Bill Schlesinger, Dartmouth alum and President Emeritus of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, discusses the legacy of environmental studies at Dartmouth.

William H. Schlesinger '72 was among the first to quantify the amount of carbon held in soil organic matter globally, providing subsequent estimates of the role of soils and human impacts on forests and soils in global climate change. He is the author or coauthor of over 250 scientific papers on subjects of environmental chemistry and global change and the widely-adopted textbook Biogeochemistry: An Analysis of Global Change (Academic Press, 3rd ed. 2013).  He has published editorials and columns in the Charlotte Observer, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, and the (Raleigh) News and Observer, and other media outlets. His latest book, Translational Ecology, was published in September 2017 as an anthology of these popular writings.
