Plant taxonomy and biosystematics
Major Research Achievements (2013-2017)
  • Taxonomy. Published a distinct new species, Senecio kuanshanensis (Asteraceae), and a new distributional record, Oreorchis indica (Orchidaceae), collected from the highland in Central Mountain Range of Taiwan. The latter was previously considered as belonging to the monotypic genus Kitigorchis that was endemic to central Japan. Provided a synoptical account of sections of the large and difficult genus Begonia in China (150 spp.). Monographically treated Tubocapsicum (2 spp., Solanaceae) that is confined to eastern Asia.
  • Chromosome Cytology. Published the karyology of Begonia (14 spp., Begoniaceae), Chrysanthemum sensu lato (5 spp., Asteraceae) and Rubus (37 spp., Rosaceae) indigenous to Taiwan. Cytological information for these taxa was nearly entirely lacking previously.
  • Molecular systematics/phylogeography. Systematic status and phylogeography for Kitigorchis (Orchidaceae), Begonia ×taipeiensis (Begoniaceae), Cunninghamia konishii (Cupressaceae), Glycine tomentella and G. tabacina (Fabaceae), and the monotypic Stimpsonia (Primulaceae) in eastern Asia, were inferred by morphological characters and molecular markers.
  • Invasive species. Reported for the first time the invasion of the notorious Mimosa pigra (Fabaceae), a native of tropical Africa and America, to southern Taiwan. They spread along river banks and riverbeds and out-compete indigenous species at an alarming rate. Monitoring and control measures against this notorious exotic species were suggested.
