Principal investigator

Amael Borzee_Hynobius sampling-square
Amaël Borzée – field work for Hynobius sp. in Korea

In addition of being a professor at Nanjing Forestry University, I am also a secretariat member of the IUCN SSC Amphibian Specialist Group, the communications officer for the International Herpetological Committee, and a board member and chapter liaison for the Society for Conservation Biology, Asia section.

I am principally interested in behavioural ecology and the conservation of species. My focus is currently shifting away from exclusively studying amphibian breeding behaviour and conservation in North East Asia (summary of the projects here), although this will always remain one of my research strengths. I now wish to address broader questions aiming at the conservation of multi-species populations over large landscapes, including multiple types of approaches and analytical tools. Find my publications below.

My past projects mostly revolved around the reasons behind the endangered status of the Suweon Treefrog (Dryophytes suweonensis), the impact of climate change on the breeding phenology of Korean amphibians, and the eco-phylogeography of amphibians in North East Asia. Most results are available here.

My research interests have broadened since the establishment of my lab in September 2019, and you can find the lab page on Research Gate and Facebook here!

Research is not (really) everything, and I very much enjoy looking up new species on my way around. I try identifying what I can, and most of it is on iNaturalist.
