主要研究方向 (Research directions)

1. 跨纬度/海拔梯度的群落学研究;

2.林冠/林下尺度的生态食物网·物质循环研究;

3.林冠/林下群落对全球气候变化的响应。本研究组致力于通过研究生物多样性是如何受随机进程(生态漂移和历史偶然性)、生物因子(如:竞争、捕食、共生)、环境因子(如:植物分类和结构多样性、温度、降水、土壤理化指标)影响而在时空上构成的,来理解森林群落的构建规则。生物体在个体、种群、群落尺度间的交互作用以及周围环境因子的影响产生了复杂的食物网和生态系统功能(如:植食、传粉和分解)。我们在云南省和东南亚国家的多个空间尺度(小的垂直分层到大的海拔、纬度梯度)研究生态系统和生物多样性形成并维持的原因。本研究组长期使用建立在勐腊和哀牢山的林冠塔吊,来研究生物多样性的垂直分层和生态系统功能。

Our group brings together scholars and post-doctoral fellows who have excellent expertise in various disciplines including entomology (Nakamura, Mizuno), community ecology (Nakamura, Katabuchi, Dossa), chemical ecology (Mizuno), functional ecology (Dossa, Katabuchi, Ling) and ecological modelling (Katabuchi) to understand assembly mechanisms and ecosystem functioning of forest biodiversity at various spatial (vertical, elevational and latitudinal differences) and temporal (seasonal and annual differences) scales. We aim to understand how biodiversity is spatiotemporally structured by stochastic processes, and biotic and abiotic factors. We investigate intra- and interspecific interactions of organisms at individual, species and community levels, which give rise to and govern complex food-webs and ecosystem functions such as herbivory, pollination and decomposition. Our group capitalizes on a network of Chinese canopy cranes and other latest technologies such as gas chromatography and mass spectrometry instrumentation, meta- and environmental-DNA barcoding to understand interactions of organisms in a whole forest across vertical strata. Moreover, we collaborate with Griffith University (Australia), Czech Academy of Sciences (Czech Republic), the University of Hong Kong (China), Wuhan Botanical Garden, CAS (China), Mahidol University (Thailand), Niigata University (Japan) Hirosaki University (Japan), University of Minnesota (USA) to conduct international and regional research projects and educational programs.
