Education and Appointments:
Education: 1979-1983: Zhongshan University, Botany, B.A. 1983-1986: Zhoangshan University, Plant Ecophysiology, M.S. 1997-2001: South China Institute of Botany, CAS, Ecology, PhD. 1992-1995: University of Trier, Germany, Geobotany, grauduate study. Work experience: 1986-present: South China Institute of Botany, CAS 1989: World Forest and Ecology Institute, University of Hamburg, Germany, photosynthetical ecophysiology, visiting scholar 2000-2001: Nicholas School of Environment and Earth Sciences, Duke University, USA, tree sap flow, visiting scholar 2002: Department of Plant Ecology, University of Bayreuth, Germany, C exchange of mountain vegetation, visiting scholar Research areas: My research interest is plant ecophysiology. My scientific activities mainly include ecophysiological characteristics of pioneer tree species that are used for re-vegetation on degraded hilly lands in lower subtropical area of South China, light use efficiency and the productivity variation of man-made forests, ecophysiological effects of constructive plants during the process of vegetation restoration, ecophysiological responses of dominant tree species of zonal forest in lower subtropical area to important environmental factors under global change, monitoring on canopy water flux of man-made forest in hilly lands of South China by applying Granier’s thermal dissipation probe, and emission of greenhouse gases in hilly lands.
