Research interests


Main research interests of Huang Lab are in biodiversity patterns (character,distribution, species relationship) and their ecological and evolutionary mechanisms. The lab mainly uses agricultural and forestry insects as researchmodels. We try to integrate time (species phylogenetics and evolutionary history), space (spatial pattern of species distributions and genetic diversity), and relationship (ecological interactions and endosymbiosis between species) to understand scientific questions such as why agriculture and forestry pests can be pests, evolutionary patterns and processes of insect diversity, evolution and maintenance of species interactions. Multiple research approaches from different fields are recruited, including biodiversity,molecular phylogenetics, evolutionary biology, ecology, biogeography, genomics,and bioinformatics.

The lab is also interested in some topics of general interest in biology, including issueson biodiversity data sharing and related data policies, the challenges and opportunities in taxonomy. We try to understand these issues based onempirical studies.
