英国生态学会再一次编辑《中国生态学》特刊

王德华


国际生态学大会于2017821-25日在中国北京召开。英国生态学会主办的5个国际生态学期刊:Journal of Ecology, Journal of Animal Ecology,  Journal of Applied Ecology,  Functional Ecology, Methods in Ecology and Evolution,近日发布了专门编辑的《中国生态学》特刊,本期特刊精选了中国科学家今年在这些期刊上发表的文章。中国生态学家对国际生态学的贡献在日益增大,中国科学家群体的国际影响也在日益增大。应《动物生态学》编辑部的邀请,为本期特刊《动物生态学》部分写几句话,包括中国动物生态学近年来的主要发展、主要领域和未来可能的发展方向(中英文如下)。

 执行主编KenWilson说,近年来Journal of AnimalEcology收到中国科学家的高质量稿件逐渐多了起来,这些稿件涵盖多个主题和动物类群。近期的两篇文章被选为“焦点论文”,是中国学者高质量论文的代表作。Shao等(河南大学)研究了补充氮和增加蚯蚓数量可以联合作用对取食植物的线虫群落产生影响。边疆晖等(中国科学院西北高原生物研究所)描述了(啮齿动物)母体应激与种群动态之间的联系,以及理解这种依赖效应的适应意义的重要性。


3年前,英国生态学会曾经编辑过一期《中国生态学》虚拟特刊:

********************

当今中国的动物生态学发展可谓日新月异,保护生态学、行为生态学、生理生态学、种群生态学、群落生态学等各研究领域都有长足进展。一个很重要很突出的特点是,研究者们重视和加强了基础研究积累,注重和加强了对相关学说或理论的实验验证,原创性研究逐渐增多。一批训练有素的青年动物生态学家成长起来。

主要研究领域包括以个体为基础的种群动态和调节机制(啮齿动物),动物和植物之间的相互作用(啮齿动物和昆虫),动物对特殊环境的生理适应机制(啮齿动物和两栖爬行动物),变化环境下的动物地理分布格局(哺乳动物和鸟类)与群落的组织和结构(鸟类和昆虫),中国特有或珍稀濒危物种的保护生理学(大熊猫)和保护遗传学(金丝猴和亚洲象)等。

未来可能的发展方向主要是研究思路上采取整合和多组织层次的研究途径,深化行为、生理和生活史特征等方面变化调节的分子生物学机理,注重动物对特殊极端环境的适应和中国特有珍稀濒危物种的保护等。

             

Journal of Animal Ecology is a global journal that receives submissions from all over the world and we are pleased say that we are receiving an increasing number of high quality papers from China covering a diverse range of taxa and topics.

The high qualityof submissions is showcased by two recent papers from Chinese researchers being chosen to be the subject of In Focus papers. Shao and colleges explored how nitrogen addition and exotic earthworms interacted to impact on the plant-feeding nematode community.  Bian et al. demonstrate the connection between maternal stress and population dynamics, and the importance of understanding the adaptive potential of sucheffects in a context-dependent manner.

Ken Wilson, Executive Editor


Animal Ecology research in China today is developing rapidly, many new and exciting findingsin Conservation ecology, Behavioral ecology, Physiological ecology, Populationecology and Community ecology were published in international journals. We can see scientists have been paying attention to the basic data accumulation, focusing on proposing and testing important hypothesis. We are happy to see thean increase in innovative work. A more exciting aspect is the young and well-trained animal scientists are playing leading roles in animal ecology research in China.

Key areas include the population dynamics and regulation mechanisms based on individuals (rodents), the interaction between animals and plants (rodents and insects), adaptation to extreme environments (rodents, amphibians and reptiles), geographic distribution patterns (mammals and birds), species organization in community under climate change (birds and insects) and increasingly new areas in conservation physiology and conservation genetics for Chinese native and threatened species such as giant panda, golden monkeys and Asian elephants.

Possible future directions (including changes to the research philosophy) should strengthen the thoughts and approachof integration for different areas and biological organizations, deepen the molecular mechanisms in understanding the variations in behavior, physiology and life history traits, focus on the adaptation mechanisms to changing environments, and the conservation of native and threatened species in China.
