Work experience
During my career as the teacher of silviculture, I have been the author of 6 textbooks and monographs of silviculture based on my personal observations and research results, and literature sources. My research activities, conducted mainly as the project leader, were concentrated mostly on the plantation silviculture in arid, sub-arid and dry sub-humid zones of China. I have been the consultant for the Ministry of Forestry, China, and the Beijing Municipal Government for more than 10 years. Only recently, in 1996-1997, as an advisory project leader in Chinese Academy of Engineering I have conducted a series of field study in the mountainous regions of Yunnan, Guizhou and Sichuan Provinces.
