For more than 40 years, Margaret “CanopyMeg” Lowman Ph.D. has pioneered the development of forest canopy science and been involved in groundbreaking work in 46 countries across seven continents. She refers to herself as an “arbornaut” — an explorer of the forest canopies that make up what she affectionately calls the eighth continent.
As the author/co-author of multiple books and over 150 scientific publications, Meg is regularly invited to co-chair international canopy conferences, speak to colleges and universities, and serve in sustainable advisory positions and on boards for corporations and nonprofits across the globe.
Her academic training includes Williams College (BA, Biology); Aberdeen University (MSc, Ecology); Sydney University (Ph.D., Botany); Tuck School of Business (Executive Management Program), and Stanford University (Ald0 Leopold Leadership Program). She was selected as a Fulbright Senior Specialist Scholar to both India and Ethiopia.
(Note: Seventeen peer-reviewed publications were co-authored with undergraduate students, as a result of my undergraduate teaching opportunities at Williams College and New College.)
