Introduction of Speakers
Dr. Fumin Lei is a Research Professor from the Institute of Zoology (IOZ),ChineseAcademyof Sciences (CAS),China. Dr. Lei received his PhD in ornithology at IOZ, CAS, in 1994. His research interests include taxonomy, biodiversity and distribution, molecular phylogeny and evolution, phylogeography, adaptive evolution by comparative genomics, and molecular epidemiology of wildlife diseases (e.g., avian influenza). He has published over 275 research papers or monographs inScience, Nature Communications, PNAS, MBE, Global Ecology and Biogeography, and Molecular Ecology. Dr. Lei is the Editor forAsia, Journal of Ornithology, and Associate Editor of Avian Research, Zoological Systematics, Journal of Biogeography, and Current Zoology. He is also the Vice-President of the International Ornithologists’ Union (IOU), and President of the China Ornithological Society.
Dr. Masaharu Motokawa received his PhD in zoology in 1998 from Kyoto University, Japan. Since 1997, he has been involved in research and education at the Kyoto University Museum as an Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Professor. Prof. Motokawa’s research focuses on taxonomic and systematic studies of taxonomically complex or controversial groups by reevaluating species, subspecies, and synonyms. This includes describing new taxa or confirming current taxonomic statuses. He is also investigating current characteristics and formation processes of mammalian fauna based on updated species taxonomies and distribution patterns. He has been involved in many field expeditions in diverse regions of Asia and is currently responsible for the ‘Asian Vertebrate Species Diversity Network Platform’, which involves researchers from multiple countries, including Japan, China, Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
