RECENT RESEARCH ACCOMPLISHMENT
My recent studies on “Nitrogen transfer between plants via mycorrhizal networks” at natural abundance and enrichment levels have demonstrated my excellence in some aspects of plant biology. My work on two-way, not only one-way, N transfer between plants, has advanced knowledge on the “nutrients transfer between different species by mycorrhizal networks that may have direct and indirect benefits and penalties to plants of sharing mycorrhizal mycelia with their neighbours in established woodlands” and been referred to as “an important future New Phytologist publication debate” (Alexander I.J. 2007. New Phytologist 176: 499-501), and
● “He et al. (2003) showing that there can be two-way transfer of nitrogen between nodulated and nonnodulated woody species. It has important practical implications. If nodulated trees are selectively logged, which may be the case (for example, for Pterocarpus, which is prized for its reddish-coloured wood), then the nutrient dynamics of the whole forest could be at risk” (Sprent J.I. New Phytologist 167: 326-30, 2005);
● My 2006 publication in New Phytologist (170: 143-151) has been referred to as “one of 15 cutting-edge international tree researches in 2006” by a New Phytologist Editorial (Woodward F.I. and Slater H. 173: 661-663, 2007), and as “an important future New Phytologist publication debate” by another New Phytologist Editorial (Alexander I.J. 176: 499-501, 2007);
● My 2006 invited review in Trends in Ecology & Evolution (21: 621-28, as a co-author) has been commented on by a New Phytologist Editorial (Martin F. and Slater H. 174: 225-8, 2007) as “has contributed much to the understanding of the ecology and evolution of mycorrhizal symbioses”;
● My major findings and one figure from two publications in New Phytologist (163: 629-640, 2004 and 167: 897-912, 2005) have been adopted by a well-known textbook “Plant Physiological Ecology” (2008 2nd edition by Lambers H., Chapin F.S. and Pons T.L., Springer, New York).
● Cited by more than 20 high-ranked journals, including BioScience, Ecology, Ecol. Complexity, Ecol. Lett., FEMS Microbiol. Rev., Funct. Ecol., Fungal Genet. Biol., J. Ecol., J. Exp. Bot., Mol. Ecol., Mycorrhiza, Nature, New J. Physics, New Phytol., Plant, Cell & Environ., Phytochemistry, Plant Soil, Soil Biol. Biochem., Trends in Ecol. & Evol., Tree Physiol.;
● Invited for more than 30 talks at international and national conferences, including US/British Mycological Societies, US Soil Society, US Ecology Society, 2002-2005; 4th International Conference on Mycorrhizas, Canada, 2003; 9th/10th International Soil Ecology Conference, 2003/2005; Association of Tropical Biology and Conservation, 2006, China; EcoSummit, China, 2007; Rhizosphere 2, France, 2007; and at universities, including UC Davis, 2003; Harvard University, 2005; University of Tokyo, 2006; Peking Univ. and Nanjing Inst. Soil Sciences, 2007;
● Invited to review manuscripts from a range of journals, including Ecol. Appl., J. For. Res., New Phytol., Plant Soil, Restor. Ecol., Soil Biol. Biochem.; and to join two editorial boards: Plant Soil (2007-, Consulting Editorial Board); Global Science BooksTM (2006-, Editorial Board);
● Organised and chaired a “Multiple Approaches in Ecosystem Process Study” symposium (8 talks) for the Association of Tropical Biology and Conservation (21/07/2006, Kunming, China) and co-chaired a “Mycorrhizal Communities” session (10 talks) for the 89th Ecological Society of America Meeting (02/08/2004, Portland, USA);
● Invited to write two chapters for two world-wide used textbooks: 1) Mycorrhiza: Structure, Function, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (3rd edition), edited by A. Varma et al., Springer; and 2) Mycorrhizal Symbiosis: Principles and Practice (2nd edition), edited by A. Varma, Springer.
● Most recently, my Research Highlight presentation - “Hardpan penetration ability of drought-stressed wheat under pot and field conditions” - at the 2008 Agribusiness Crop Updates in February 2008 in Perth (see He et al., 2008), has attracted wide attention. The relevant progress and future possibilities of this research have then been introduced by Farming Weekly (12/06/2008), Merredin-Wheatbelt Mercury (02/07/2008), Australian Grain (01/08/2008), and by http://www.getfarming.com.au and http://www.seedquest.com (USA), and by a planned ABC radio broadcast as well.
