I am interested in the causes of the large-scale patterns of species diversity and the responses of species to past and future climatic change. Since 2005, I have been working on the Database of China’s Woody Plants (containing the distributions of 11,405 woody species in China), and the patterns of plant species richness and beta diversity in China. My current and future research combines phylogeography with macroecology to explore how climate and species evolution determine local and regional species diversity, and how climatic change influences species distributions.
