I am interested in all issues of macroecology, especially the causes of the geographical patterns of species diversity, range size and body size, and the responses of species to climate change. My work in the last several years was mainly focused on the compilation of Database of China's Woody Plants, and the geographical patterns of plant diversity in eastern Asia and North America. My current research combines phylogeography with macroecology to explore how climate and species evolution collectively determine local and regional species diversity, and how future climate change influences species distribution.
