Introduction
I am focusing on the behavior ecology and genetic of the endemic primate species, such as: Hainan gibbon and Guizhou golden monkey, since 2011 to this year, I got 4 NSFC grants support my research. I also care about the adaptation mechanism of the cave dwelling animals, the cave fishes, the amphanbias. I welcom the scholars who has the same interesting join us, cooperate on such projects.
