Jun-Xing Yang, Ph.D.
1 Overview of research

Based on systematics and taxonomy of vertebrates, using macro and micro biological methods and techniques, study systematic evolution, ecology, conservation biology of vertebrates, explore phylogenetic differentiation related zoogeographic process and ecological adaptive process, and provide basic information for conversation of species. Mainly study wetland animals including fishes, amphibians and benthos.


2 Interest of research

On fishes, we are interested in studying taxonomy and conservation of freshwater fishes in southwest China, especially endemic groups and species in this region. To achieve this goal, we are also interested in survey and monitor of aquatic ecosystem. Besides fishes, we also study aquatic animals, including zooplankton and benthos, algae and macrophytes related to fishes. In conservation biology, we have worked on artificial breeding of endangered fishes in Yunnan; also spent years on wetland restorations.


3 Research background

Yunnan located in southwest China, eastern of Himalayan and Tibetan plateau and western of lowland area of south China. Yunnan is famous for high diversity in environment, climate and biodiversity. The inventory of biodiversity of Yunnan is still uncompleted, there are still some new species being discovered every year. The evolution and speciation processes of biodiversity are not clear. Our research group is one of the oldest group since establishment of Kunming Institute of Zoology, focus on fauna survey, taxonomy and evolution. Published lots of monographs and papers on systematic zoology, including Fauna Sinica Silurifomres, Fishes of Yunnan, Amphibians of Yunnan etc. In recent years, we introduced molecular techniques to solve scientific questions proposed from taxonomy, ecology and conservation biology, and have achieved a few good results.


4 Research achievement

(1) Survey and review of fish fauna of all major 6 drainages in Yunnan and adjacent regions, and discovered 36 new species of fish and 2 new species of mollusk in Yunnan.

Since 1960s, the group started research on fishes. In this report, only works since 2005 were reviewed.

Status of fish resources, fauna and conservation of some drainages were reported, including Ruilijiang (a border river between China and Myanmar, and a tributary of Irrawaddy), Dulongjiang (a border river between China and Myanmar, and a tributary of Irrawaddy), Lixianjiang (a border river between China, Lao and Vietnan, and a tributary of Red River), Nanla River (a border river between China and Myanmar, and a tributary of Mekong), Niulan River (a major tributary of Jinshajiang, upper Yangtze River), Tuoniang River (a border river between Yunnan and Guangxi, and a tributary of upper Pearl River). Together with Aldemaro Romero (Arkansas State University) and Yahui Zhao (Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences), the hypogean fishes of China were comprehensively reviewed, and Xiaoyong Chen (KIZ) mainly contributed on Nemacheiline loaches. It is the most comprehensive review of hypogean fishes of China at present.

Based on surveys on the 6 drainages in Yunnan and adjacent regions, 36 new species of fish and 2 new species of mollusk were described since 2005, and 6 new distribution records of fish were reported. Most of the papers were published on international journals on zoology or ichthyology, such as J. Fish Biology, Environmental Biology of Fishes, Zootaxa, Ichthyological Exploration of Freshwaters, Copeia, Zoologischer Anzeiger etc.

Now we are working on monitoring biodiversity in several key areas of Yunnan, including Shangri-La, Nuozhadu Reservoir of Lancangjiang River. Funded by the National Department of Science and Technology, three important wetlands in Shangri-La were combined into a monitoring region and monitored since 2008. By monitoring aquatic biodiversity, a protocol for standard procedures and techniques for monitoring fishes in high altitude area were prepared, and it already submitted to the National Department of Environmental Protection and will become a national standard protocol after being approved. Since 2009, we started to monitor biodiversity in Nuozhadu Reservoir, a reservoir formed by a hydro power station in main channel of Lancangjiang River, which is the most important international river in Yunnan and originated in Tibet Plateau, is called Lancangjiang in China and Mekong in Southeast Asia. It flows into Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam. It holds the richest biodiversity in Asia. The monitoring of biodiversity of Nuozhadu is comprehensive, fishes and vegetation are monitoring once every year, and amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals are monitoring once ever two years. Through this project, a lot of important data on status of biodiversity were obtained, and these data are very useful for studying of impact of hydro power station to biodiversity through time.
