The Ecology and Evolution of Plant Animal Interaction (EEPAI) research group was set up in 2002. The group has a diversity of people with quite a wide range of interests. Our research focuses address the following questions: 1) How do plant-animal interaction complexes contribute to the creation and maintenance of biodiversity in the communities of above and blow ground ecosystems? 2) To what extent are interacting plants and animals co-evolutionary adapted to and shaped by each other? 3) How do plant-animal interactions respond to changing environments? 4) How can biologists and biological institutions in general, by adopting proper approaches and using public-understood language, enhance public awareness for biodiversity conservation?

To examine ecological relationships and evolutionary implications, we try to integrate evidence based on multiple disciplines, including experimental field ecology, molecular work and phytochemistry.

Training graduate students is one of the most important components in EEPAI. Our philosophy of teaching is to enhance students’ capacity in critical thinking and ability of implementing ideas. We seldom arrange a specific topic for students’ research, instead, we welcome students do research based on their own interests and choice.
