According to the name list of China Postdoctoral Foundation recipients, Dr. Alison Wee Kim Shan of Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) received the first-class General Financial Grant from the foundation.

     Dr. Alison Wee Kim Shan is mainly interested in plant ecology related to habitat degradation, particularly topics that are related to anthropogenic disturbances. She works to investigate possible conservation strategies which can be derived from looking at how human disturbances affect plant communities.

After receiving Ph.D degree from National University of Singapore, Dr. Alison Wee Kim Shan came to conduct postdoctoral research in XTBG. Her co-supervisor is Prof. Richard Corlett. She currently works on studies of genetic optimization of ex situ conservation strategies for rare and endangered plant species in Xishuangbanna

    XTBG has been attaching importance to the cultivation of postdoctoral fellows for the past few years. With the working and living conditions for postdocs increasingly improved, XTBG has attracted and selected many excellent postdoctoral researchers. The quality of scientific research programs is greatly enhanced and more postdoctoral programs have been received.
