About us


The group of Conservation Biology has a broad interest in scientific and technical issues concerning utilization of regional plant resources and plant diversity conservation, with projects ranging from surveys on plant resources and tackling key problems in utilization to conservation of endangered species and mechanisms underlying multi-species interactions. Our overall research goals are sustainable utilization of plant resources and effective conservation of plant diversity. Specifically, our objectives include: 1) a better knowledge of the distribution and available resources of the target species, 2) a better understanding of basic biology of concerned species to facilitate their utilization, 3) unraveling mechanisms for endangerment of endangered species and working out effective practices for conservation, and 4) revealing biotic/abiotic rhizosphere processes of root hemiparasitic plants influencing biodiversity and plant community structure.
