Self Introduction


Landscape ecology, focusing on the role of topography and geomorphological processes on ecological patterns and dynamics at multiple scales, and application topics on forest fire management, sustainable land use planning and green-development.

Plant community ecology, focusing on environmental constraints of community assembly, biodiversity maintenance, and biological strategies (fecundity and seed dispersal), in addition to the application topics of ecological restoration of degraded vegetation; biological invasion control, and endemic species conservation

Macroecology and plant biogeography, specifically in the mountain context, and the applications in natural reserve planning, etc.
