Major Research Achievements (2013-2017)
  • Ecological role of chlorophylls: All three humic substances, despite their soil sources, stimulate the activities of both chlorophyllase a and b. It is suggested that humic substances in the soil may accelerate the chlorophyll degradation of litter in the ecosystem and that chlorophyllase a and b may be different enzymes.
  • Relationship between chlorophylla and satellite remote sensing: The polarity of chlorophylls or carotenoids is significantly correlated to satellite NDVI. Chlorophylls without phytol chains, also called dephytylated pigments, such as PPIX, MGPP, Pchlide, Chlide a and Chlide b, are more polar and located in the stroma. Chlorophylls containing phytol chain, also named phytylated pigments, such as Chl a, Chl b, Phe a and Phe b, are less polar or nonpolar and situated in the thylakoid membrane. The less polar CRCs attribute more than the more polar CRCs to the satellite NDVI.
  • Ecological research on Chi-Chi earthquake-caused landslide: The recovery process of pioneer vegetation in Chiu-Feng-Er Mountain landslide may follow the equation of the grey prediction model, i.e. x(k+1)=72387.143e0.4704. This recovery process exhibited a lag phase of approximately two months. CTSI, pH, Temp, and DO had the greatest influence on the SRWRI of Ser-Su-Ken Lake for one-and-a-half years after the Chi-Chi Earthquake; inorganic matter played a much larger role than organic matter did; and BOD, PO4-, NH4+, NO3-, and NO2- contributed the least of all physico-chemical variables. This is the first report to use a grey relational analysis to solve an important question in limnology unresolved by traditional mathematics and statistics.
