Major Research Achievements
1. Systematic Paleobotany
  We have recovered new fossil records that provide critical evidence of plant evolution in the Hengduan Mountains. Five Neogene floras were studied in detail and several well-preserved new fossil species were reported, e.g. Pinus prekesiya, Drynaria callispora and Sambucus areolatesemen (see publication list ).
  2. Neogene Paleoclimatology
  Our lab group has... More Content>>
