Jin CHEN (PhD)

June 20th, 2012

Director, Professor, Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden, Chinese Academy of Sciences

My group’s current interests focus on plant-animal interaction, specifically the following questions: 1) How do plant-animal interaction complexes contribute to the creation and maintenance of biodiversity in above and blow ground ecosystems? 2) To what extent are interacting plants and animals co-evolutionarily adapted to and shaped by each other? 3) How do plant-animal interactions respond to changing environments? Our study systems include animals such as frugivory birds, rodents, ants and spiders, and plants such as figs, pines and Tacca spp.

Fieldcourses: CTFS-AA 2007 (Xishuangbanna), AFEC-X 2009-2011.
