Big contribution to macroecological and macroevolutionary research

These days Carsten Rahbek is far from his office at Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate at University of Copenhagen. The center leader is visiting China to give his inaugural talk at Peking University for his new title as guest professor. Carsten Rahbek will also be giving yet another inaugural talk at the Institute of Zoology at the Chinese Academy of Sciences where he has been invited as a Bingzhi Forum Professor. The forum promotes international scientific exchange and collaboration among leading scientists in the fields of ecology, evolution, conservation, cell biology and reproductive biology.

Carsten Rahbek is recognized for his significant contribution to macroecological and macroevolutionary research, which also covers the topic for his talk entitled: The ‘Holy Grail’ question of macroecology: What determines distribution and diversity of life on Earth?

The visit also serves to promote and formalize the current collaboration with Peking University and to discuss the establishment of a new PhD exchange program with Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate.
