As the first or corresponding author, the team has published more than 200 academic papers and 7 academic books, which has improved the industrialization level of paulownia and helped the implementation of rural revitalization strategy.
Multifunctional Forest Resources Cultivation Theory and Technology Team: The team is dedicated to the research and technology development of multifunctional forest resources cultivation, management, management and processing and utilization. Relying on two provincial and ministerial-level and one university-level research platforms, based in Henan and facing the whole country, the team conducts a series of scientific researches on the collection, analysis, evaluation and innovative utilization of forest germplasm resources, seedling breeding technology system of the main native species of paulownia, sambucus, bellflower, camellia, mulberry, etc., the theory and technology of the structural and functional regulation of the main types of forests in Henan, the theory and methodology of the evaluation of the process of vegetation restoration, and the system of processing and utilization of the oil of sambucus and sericulture. A series of scientific researches have been carried out and innovative results have been achieved, with the overall research level ranking at the domestic advanced level and some fields ranking at the international advanced status. In the past five years, it has undertaken more than 90 projects, published more than 150 papers, issued 6 standards, selected and bred 1 provincial good seed, published 4 monographs, and 4 provincial and ministerial-level scientific and technological achievement awards.
Forest Biomass Resource Utilization Innovation Team: Adhere to the four directions, focus on the high-value utilization of forest resources, strengthen the foundation, break the technology, cultivate the innovative thinking and practical ability of teachers and students, promote the collaboration and exploration spirit of the members, and actively promote the integration of industry, academia, research and the integration of the job to realize the synergistic development of talent chain, innovation chain and industrial chain, and strive to cultivate a group of outstanding innovative talents. Cultivate a batch of outstanding innovative talents. In the past three years, it has been approved 4 youth projects of National Natural Science Foundation of China, 8 surface funds of China Postdoctoral Fellowship, and more than 10 other provincial projects, and cultivated more than 20 people, such as National Excellent Postdoctoral Fellowship in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Henan Excellent Postdoctoral Fellowship in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Young Top Talents of the Central Plains, Young Postdoctoral Fellowship in Innovation of the Central Plains, Young Top Talents in Forestry Science and Technology of Henan Province, etc.; and it has been awarded the first prize of the Invention and Entrepreneurship Achievement Prize of the Invention Association of China, Gold Award of the 1st National Postdoctoral Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition, Gold Award of the 1st Henan Postdoctoral Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition, Gold/Silver Award of the 2nd National Postdoctoral Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition, etc. Seven excellent instructors from Henan Province and seven national excellent instructors from Henan Province have been awarded the National Excellent Instructor Award for their guidance of students and postgraduates to participate in the Internet+ Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition for Students. He has guided students and postgraduates to participate in the Internet+ Student Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition and won 6 national gold medals and the first prize in Henan Province.
