Chris P. S. Larsen obtained his Ph.D. degree in geography from McMaster University of Hamilton, Hamilton, ON, Canada, in 1994. Since 1994, Larsen works as an Associate Professor with the Geography Department, University at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY, USA. In addition, he is a biogeographer whose research interests include the intersection of forest ecology, disturbance ecology, landscape ecology, and climate change. Larsen is interested in how climatic conditions, disturbance frequencies, and plant community compositions influence each other in a complex system dynamic. The data and methods that he employs include dendrochronology, forest inventories, fossil pollen and charcoal, GIS, presettlement land surveys, and remote sensing. His research locations have included boreal, montane, temperate rainforest, and temperate deciduous forests, with spatial scales ranging from individual forest stands to the whole of the Eastern USA, over temporal scales ranging from individual years to the whole of the past millennium.
