I am interested in detecting the community stability and ecosystem structure (community structure, biodiversity and productivity) in inland waters in response to anthropogenic disturbance and climatic fluctuation through applying limnological analyses (i.e. Cladocera, zoonplankton).
I am also interested in applying geochemical methods (carbon and nitrogen stable isotopes, Chla pigments) to tackle research questions on biogeochemical cycles and food web interaction.
In the first case study during my Msc program, I have identified the roles of lake damming and water-level fluctuation in driving spatio-temporal patterns of cladoceran community. Specifically, a gradual increase in water level has led to the loss of macrophytes, benthic communities and species diversity in a medium-sized reservoir of Southwest China. Moreover, there existed a threshold water depth of ~8 m on both temporal and spatial scale of cladoceran community. In consistent with the field surveys, this lake has experienced a regime shift with the loss of benthic conmmunities hydrological regulations (Wang et al. 2019 Inland Waters in press).
My second research work focused on the ecological changes of two alpine lake (~4,000 m a.s.l.) without direct human disturbances over the past two centuries. We found that climate warming might have played a more important role, when compared to the impact of atmospheric nitrogen deposition, in structuring cladoceran communities in two shallow headwater lakes over the last few decades (Wang et al. 2020 in preparation).
During the 2017-2019, I conducted fieldwork for collecting water, zooplankton, phytoplankton, macrophyte, aquatic isotope and sediment samples at 12 lakes in Yunnan Plateau, China.
During the 2013-2016, I have carried out a comprehensive survey of hydrology, climate, vegetation, soil, geology, remote sensing and so on in the Hanjiang River, Qinling, Bashan, Gansu and Qinghai.
