Field visit and technological support to wetland and forest in Anqing
Academic exchanges on eco-hydrology of wetland in Anhui Academy of Forestry
Invited by the project group “Hydrological adjusting technologies of wetland forests in the Yangtze River Delta based on hydrogen and oxygen isotopes”, Mr. Chen Hongjun, research fellow and expert in wetland ecology from South Florida Water Management District, U.S.,visited Research Institute of Forest Ecology, Environment, and Protection for academic exchanges, CAF. Mr. Zhou Xiaoyu, Secretary of CPC Committee of Research Institute of Forest Ecology, Environment, and Protection attended the activities.
Mr. Chen Hongjun gave a lecture on Two decades of Research in Wetlands: Plant Ecology to Ecological Restoration, in which he briefed on his wetland research in two decades and updated progress on eco-hydrology research on forest wetlands in the U.S. He discussed with audience on differences and similarities in ecological research of wetlands between the U.S. and China, and management experience on wetland ecology.
After the lecture, Mr. Xu Qing, research fellow of the project group escorted Mr. Chen Hongjun to Anqing, Anhui Province for a field visit and technological guidance. They were also invited to attend academic exchanges on eco-hydrology of wetland in Anhui Academy of Forestry.
