Abstract 讲座摘要 

Orchids have fascinated and intrigued people for centuries, with their exotic beauty and diverse range of spectacular colors, unique shapes, and alluring fragrances. They are known worldwide for their numerous medicinal, ornamental, and ethnobotanical uses. However, over harvesting, habitat destruction, fragmentation, climate change, reduction in the number of pollinators and increase in pests and diseases has threatened many members of this highly diverse plant family to the verge of extinction. Despite being a significant focus of scientific investigation, many mysteries remain unsolved about their complex and highly specialized pollination mechanisms, their ability to adapt to a wide range of habitat conditions, the capacity of their tiny dust seeds to be airborne and find suitable fungal partners that facilitate their germination, defying scientific explanation in many ways. This talk will explore the mysterious world of orchids and shed light on some of their secrets while learning how to contribute to their conservation. 

几个世纪以来,兰花以其异国情调的美丽、多种多样的壮观色彩、独特的形状和诱人的香味吸引着人们。它们因其众多的药用、观赏和民族植物学用途而闻名于世。然而,过度采摘、栖息地破坏、断裂、气候变化、传粉昆虫数量减少以及病虫害增加,已使这个高度多样化的植物家族的许多成员濒临灭绝。尽管关于兰花的研究层出不穷,但许多谜团仍未解开。 比如它们复杂而高度专业化的授粉机制、适应各种栖息地条件的能力、微尘种子在空气中传播的能力以及找到合适的真菌伙伴促进其发芽的能力等。这些疑团需要进一步多方面的科学解释。本次讲座将探索兰花的神秘世界,揭开兰花的秘密,并了解如何为保护兰花做出贡献。 

 

 

Speaker’s Bio 主讲人简介 

Uromi GOODALE joined Xi 'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University in 2022 as Professor of Plant Ecology at the Department of Health and Environmental Sciences, School of Science. She received a Masters in Forest Science in 2001 and a Ph.D. in 2009 from Yale University, USA. She has held postdoctoral fellowships through the National Institutes of Health, USA at University of California San Diego (2009-2012) and at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden, Yunnan, China (2012-2014). She was an associate professor at the College of Forestry in Guangxi University, China from 2014 to 2022. Currently she is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Sustainable Forestry, the chairperson of the Ecology Section of the Botanical Society of America and Co-Chair of the IUCN Seed Conservation Specialist Group (SCSG).  

She is interested in plant physiological mechanisms underlying the ecological properties of species, communities, and ecosystems. Her research focuses on seed biophysiology and regeneration dynamics in tropical, subtropical, and temperate systems with the aim of integrating research findings into conservation and management plans. Throughout her career in science, she has been dedicated to facilitating student learning and engaged in activities that examine the interplay of diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM disciplines. 

Uromi GOODALE于2022年加入西交利物浦大学,成为理学院健康与环境科学系植物生态学教授。她于 2001 年获得美国耶鲁大学林业学硕士学位,并于 2009 年获得耶鲁大学博士学位。她曾在美国国立卫生研究院,美国加州大学圣地亚哥分校(2009-2012 年)和中国科学院云南西双版纳热带植物园(2012-2014 年)从事博士后研究。2014 年至 2022 年,她在中国广西大学林学院任副教授。目前,Uromi GOODALE教授担任《可持续林业期刊》主编、美国植物学会生态学分会主席和世界自然保护联盟种子保护专家小组(SCSG)联合主席。 

Uromi GOODALE教授对物种、群落和生态系统生态特性背后的植物生理机制很感兴趣。她的研究重点是热带、亚热带和温带系统中的种子生物生理学和再生动力学,以及将研究成果融入生态保护和管理计划中。在她的学术生涯中,她一直致力于教学并积极推动 STEM 学科中多样性、公平性和包容性。
