Principal investigator

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

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

除了作为南京林业大学的教授外,我还是IUCN SSC Amphibian Specialist Group的副主席、International Herpetological Committee的通讯官以及Society for Conservation Biology亚洲组的理事会成员和科学联络员。

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.

我过去的项目主要围绕着研究Suweon Treefrog (水原雨蛙Dryophytes suweonensis)物种濒危状态背后的原因,气候变化对韩国两栖动物繁殖物候的影响,以及东北亚两栖动物的生态系统地理学。大多数研究成果都可以在这里找到。

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!

自2019年9月我的实验室成立以来,我的研究方向逐渐扩大,你可以在这里Research Gate 找到实验室主页。

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.
