  3. Sustainable Development Indicators for Taiwan
Lab Introduction: Wildlife Research Lab

Research in our lab focuses on ecology and behavior of mammals in Taiwan, including: (1) long-term ecological research on mammal communities at Fushan Experimental Research Forest, particularly in the aspect of mammals’ impact on plant regeneration through seed dispersal by Taiwan macaques and browsing by Formosan muntjac; (2) Population ecology and genetics of Eurasian otters (Lutra lutra); (3) Biological studies on Taiwan macaques, Formosan sambar, bats, shrews, and rodents; (4) Sustainable development indicators for Taiwan。

The long-term goals of our research are to accumulate biological information of mammals in Taiwan, to reveal the ecological roles of mammals in Taiwan’s ecosystems, and to provide knowledge to the conservation and management of mammals in Taiwan.
