Tony Davis is an Emeritus Professor in the Department of Geography, University of Toronto. Although his official appointment was as a biogeographer, he considers himself an environmental historian.
Tony’s research focused on the reconstruction of past environments using pollen analysis, but teaching has always been his passion. Increasingly this shifted to an emphasis on human-environment interactions in both his undergraduate teaching and in his presentations for lifelong learning groups. Tony’s involvement with the latter started with Learning Unlimited Etobicoke more than two decades ago, but since his retirement has extended to groups throughout the GTA and most recently to Burlington, where he now lives.
This will be his fourth series for Lifelong Learning Mississauga.
