Graeme Berlyn

Forestry and Environmental Studies

Graeme Berlyn’s interests are the morphology and physiology of trees and forests in relation to environmental stress. Leaves are the most responsive and vulnerable organs of trees, and Professor Berlyn studies the ways that leaf structure and function reveal the effects of environmental change such as global warming or altitudinal and latitudinal gradients. In addition, these studies can help determine the optimum range of habitats for individual species and thus be of use in reforestation and aforestation. Some of the techniques used to study these problems are: light processing by leaves in relation to environmental factors as measured by chlorophyll fluorescence, photosynthesis, spectral reflectance, absorption, and transmission; and image analysis of leaf and tree structure. Professor Berlyn has also pioneered in the development of organic biostimulants that can help plants resist insect, disease, and other environmental stressors while reducing fertilizer use. Thus the Berlyn lab focuses on how to measure the stress of plant life and also on how to ameliorate it. Students in the Berlyn lab are currently working on such topics as structural and functional change along elevational gradients in mountains, molecular control of sun/shade leaf phenotypic plasticity, response of tropical pioneer species to gaps in tropical forests, and the role of antioxidants, stress vitamins, and mycorrhizas in organic biostimulants.

Jasmina Beširević Regan

Assistant Dean, Graduate School

Jasmina Beširević Regan graduated from Augsburg College summa cum laudeearning the Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology in 1997.

Ruth Blake

Geology and Geophysics

Ruth Blake’s research has been the characterization and interpretation of oxygen isotope fractionations in the PO4-water system during biogeochemical cycling of phosphorous in natural waters and sediments. A major area of current research surrounds characterization and “ground-truthing” of 18O/16O ratios (18O) signatures of phosphates in mid-ocean ridge hydrothermal Fe-oxide deposits, with the goal of identifying reliable 18Op biosignatures and isotopic tracers of microbial activity and phosphorous cycling at mid-ocean ridges, in Earth’s deep biosphere, Mars and beyond. Many of the activities her laboratory are devoted to development of methods for extraction and O isotopic analysis of PO4 in a range of geologic, biologic and extraterrestrial materials including deep-sea sediments, ancient rocks; biomass, and Martian soil analogue materials.

Daniel Botsman

History

Daniel Botsman teaches courses on the history of Japan from 1500 to the present. 

Born in Lae, Papua New Guinea (site of one of the many brutal battles fought between Allied and Japanese forces during the Second World War), he spent his formative years in Brisbane, Australia, where he was introduced to the Japanese language at a young age.  After an extended visit to Osaka as a high school student the study of Japanese history and society quickly became a guiding intellectual passion.  He went on to complete his B.A. in Asian Studies (Hons.) at the Australian National University in Canberra and was awarded the 1992 Rhodes Scholarship for his home state of Queensland. After two years at Merton College, Oxford, where he received an M.Phil. in Economic and Social History, he completed his graduate studies at Princeton University, earning his Ph.D. in History in 1999. 

His first academic appointment was in the Faculty of Law at Hokkaido University in Sapporo, where he taught for a year before returning to the United States to take up a position in the history department at Harvard.  In 2006 he moved to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was recipient of the James M. Johnston Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Botsman’s publications include a translation of the memoirs of a prominent post-war foreign minister, Okita Saburo: A Life In Economic Diplomacy (Canberra: Australia-Japan Research Center, 1993), and a study of the history of punishment from the 16th to the 20th centuries, Punishment and Power in the Making of Modern Japan(Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2005), also available in Japanese as Chi nurareta jihi, muchi utsu teikoku (Tokyo: Intershift, 2009).

His current research examines the impact that Western ideas about slavery and emancipation had on Japanese society in the second half of the nineteenth century, focusing particularly on the experiences of Japan’s outcaste communities.  He is also at work on a volume of translations of important recent work by Japanese social historians, and an introduction to Japanese women’s history, which he is co-authoring with former UNC colleague, Jan Bardsley.
