I teach courses in biogeography, drainage basin geomorphology, special topics on soil erosion, Taiwan’s landscape and conservation, geography of Taiwan, environmental education, and environmental resource conservation and management and lab. My research and interests include biogeography, drainage basin geomorphology, soil erosion, environmental conservation and resources management.

Research interests: environmental resource conservation and management, biogeography , soil erosion

PhD. in University of Hawaii at Manoa (1997)

M.Sc. in National Taiwan University (1988)

B.Sc. in National Taiwan University (1978)


My research on the environmental resources conservation and management focuses on landscape conservation; I conduct landscape resource surveys which focus on conservation, promotion, planning and management. My main research area is central Taiwan. I have conducted related research for Shei-pa National Park, completed the park’s landscape resources survey, and selected and planned for its management. After the 921 earthquake, I have concentrated on helping the residents in the Caoling area rebuild their homes: making a landscape resource survey, helping with the planning and development of tourism, and helping the residents establish Caoling GeoPark.

My biogeography research focuses on plant geography, including mangrove ecology, coastal areas and island ecology. Other than continuing my research on mangrove ecology, I am currently advising graduate students on coastal sand dune plant ecology.

I hope to combine geomorphology and plant geography into phytogeomorphology study in the future. I have participated in a survey on the traditional lands of aboriginal people and am currently studying the “community forestry” that some aboriginal people are participating in and the problems that have been encountered. At the same time, I am studying the impact on the environment brought by aboriginal people developing tourism and ecotourism.
