      中国科学院西双版纳热带植物园(XTBG)

       云南大学(YU)

 

特邀研修班主讲教授:

 

加拿大不列颠哥伦比亚大学植物学系与生物多样性研究中心

Roy Turkington  教授

时间:  2010年4月4日—4月9日

     每天上午8:30开始,课程 4小时左右;

下午根据上午的课程情况进行专题讨论或个别辅导

地点:云南大学科学馆

参加人员:

昆明植物所、西双版纳热带植物园、云南大学三个单位的研究人员与研究生。其中带有生态学具体科学问题希望参与专题讨论的人员15 人左右(核心成员,每个单位5人左右),其余听课人员名额可以适当放宽,但全部参加人员原则不超过30人。

参加人员基本要求:

基本掌握生态学的基本知识和基本研究技能、在具体研究中需要解决相关的研究技术和理论问题、热切希望探讨生态学问题、具有较好的英文的听、说、读、写能力。

 

具体时间安排:

1.希望参加研修班的三个单位的人员请于2010年2月28日以前分别在昆明植物所周浙昆研究员、西双版纳热带植物园曹敏研究员、云南大学欧晓昆教授处报名(报名表及联系方式见后面附表),希望参加讨论的学员同时列出自己热切希望讨论的生态学研究中的具体理论或技术问题(需要具体);

2. 根据参加高级研修班人员的报名情况,经3单位主管教授讨论以后在2010年3月10日以前发出正式录取参加研修班的通知。一旦参加研修班,请按照时间准时参加,不得迟到和缺席;

Advanced Experimental Plant Ecology Workshop

 

To be chaired by

Roy Turkington, Professor

Dept. of Botany & Biodiversity Research Center

·     To be jointly held by KIB (Kunming Institute of Botany), XTBG ( Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden) and YU (Yunnan University)

·     To be held at Yunnan University

·     The workshop lasts for 6 days, approximately 4 hours each day

·     Itinerary, April 4(Sunday)to April 9 (Friday), 2010

·     A lecture will be delivered each morning.. Afternoon session will be “free” to visit locally, work with students’ manuscripts, chat with students or whatever else!

·     Participants: Approx. 15 core participants will be identified from the 3 institutions for the full workshop. Another 15 will attend the lectures but will not take part in the research proposals

 

Proposed outline for the workshop

DAY

LECTURE TOPIC

POSSIBLE RESEARCH QUESTIONS

1

An introduction to the history of ecology, and ecological research, ecological questions, and the scientific method; descriptive ecology, experimental ecology, applied and basic ecology, patterns and processes, hypothesis testing etc.  

2

Invasive species

We could ask questions about plants’ invasion, and perhaps their control, and restoration. We could apply this to any invasive species in the region e.g. Eichhornia crassipes (also called "water hyacinth"),

2

Biodiversity:  what ecological conditions allow stable coexistence of up to 40 species per m2 in a grassland or 300 per ha in a forest?

China has 30% of the world’s plant species, and 30% of those are found in Yunnan Province. What are some of the ecological conditions that promote this high diversity? Is it well documented – a good research program here!

3

Ecosystem function

We could choose any species, or groups of species, and ask how their removal (or loss) might affect how the ecosystem functions. For example, what are some of the potential consequences to Ecosystem function if Shorea and other species are replaced by rubber plantations?

3

Abundance: why weeds and rare species?

We could choose any rare or infrequent species and ask why it is not more abundant, or why it does not have a wider distribution?

4

Natural and semi-natural experiments

Aswan high dam in Egypt

Three Gorges dam in China

Sichuan earthquake

5

Why is the world green?

This topic asks why herbivores do not increase in such numbers to entirely decimate vegetation. This will be a general consideration of what is popularly known as “top-down” vs. “bottom-up” control.

6

The basic determinants of community structure.

The role of competition, herbivore, predators and chance events in determining the structure of plant communities.

It is free to change the topics as necessary before the final inform be given. The participants’ research interests or questions will be added to the topics and questions as needed.
