Dr. Wen-Lung Wu

Research Fellow
PhD, Zoology, University of Manchester, England, UK, 1985
Research Fields
Systematics, Phylogenetics and Batabasing on Malacology ,Ecology, Invende and Conservation on Malacology.
Major Research Achievements (2013-2017)
  • The Taiwan Shell Database/Web-site (http://shell.sinica.edu.tw) was created and set up in the Institute of Zoology. (2) Three new catalogues on Archaeogastropoda、Masoogastropoda and Neogastropoda were published in Dec. 2003. (3) Two books on the title of the Shells of Kinmen were published. (4) The 42 species nertids were reported by using the morphological data、the 16S rDNA、the characters, etc. by using PAUP to get the Phylogeny tree of the Taiwan neritids.
