  人类世背景下动植物关系研究高级培训班(AC-PAIA 2022)是针对学术技能和研究方法的强化培训,主要面向来自中国和热带亚洲的研究生和青年学者,提供理论和实践培训,以提高青年科学家的研究能力和信心、促进独立思考、提高解决问题的思维,建立青年科学家的区域性合作网络,并在全球环境变化背景下促进动植物关系研究领域的国际合作。

  The Advanced Course on Plant Animal Interactions in the Anthropocene (AC-PAIA 2022) is an intensive course in academic skills and research methods, intended primarily for early-stage graduate students and young scholars from China and Tropical Asia, providing training in theory and practice, improving research ability and confidence in young scientists, promoting independent and problem-solving thinking, cultivating young talent, fostering a regional network of young scientists, and promoting international cooperation in the field of plant-animal interactions in the context of global environmental change.


  Training course organized and hosted by Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) and sponsored by the Alliance of International Science Organizations (ANSO). 


   课程结构和内容  Course structure and contents 






  The course lasts three weeks and is structured in four modules with the following contents: 

  1. Theory: frugivory and seed dispersal, pollination, herbivory, plant reproduction biology, plant-animal interactions in the contexts of global environmental change and conservation; including both fundamental concepts as well as frontier advances, delivered by of a dozen of world well-known scientists via on-line lectures. 

  2. Research techniques: different aspects of study design, data collection, and data analysis, including seed tracking, camera-trapping, animal telemetry, isotope-tracking, functional traits, network analyses, spatial modeling, chemical ecology, among others. 

  3. Field visit: Bubeng Ecological Station, Xishuangbanna. 

  4. Independent research project: to be carried out by students in small groups. 


  培训形式  Delivery format 


  AC-PAIA 2022 will be run onsite and online, simultaneously. Applicants currently physically in China can apply for onsite or online study, while applicants currently physically in other countries can only apply for online study. Online participants will have access to the first two modules (theory and research techniques) but will not participate in the field visit nor carry out the independent research project. 



  Training language: English. 


  培训对象 Target students 


  The course targets early-stage graduate students and young scholars working on different aspects of plant-animal interactions, main from China and Tropical Asia (although participants from other regions are also welcome). The number of onsite full-time study participants is ~25, and the number of online participants will be capped at 40.

  Rong WANG, professor in School of Ecological and Environmental Sciences, East China Normal University. My core research direction is to study the mechanisms maintaining interspecific interactions. The main achievements include: (1) detecting how human disturbances affect interspecific interactions via altering the top-down regulation in ecosystems; (2) uncovering the ecological mechanisms maintaining the obligate mutualisms between Ficus species and their pollinating wasps by the combination of ecological surveys and molecular markers; and (3) revealing the molecular mechanisms underlying the coadaptation between plants and their pollinating insects. In my study area, I have published 20 research articles where I was listed as the first or the corresponding author. Some key studies have been published in Nature Ecology and Evolution, Trends in Ecology and Evolution, Ecology, Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, and Molecular Ecology. Moreover, I have been in charge of three national projects and funded by a talent program of China.
