Erliang Gao

PhD Student

I am a joint Ph.D. student co-supervised by Dr. Christopher Kaiser-Bunbury (University of Exeter) and Dr. Zhigang Zhao (Lanzhou University) and funded by the Chinese Scholarship Council.


Before I came to the University of Exeter, I finished a work that investigated the effect of grazing exclusion on the pollination network structures and pollination function of degraded meadows in the Tibetan Plateau. Currently, I am trying to figure out the impacts of alpine wetland degradation on both above- and below-ground ecological networks (i.e., pollination network and microbial co-occurrence network) and ecosystem multifunctionality in the Tibetan Plateau.


My research interests include plant-pollinator interactions, plant reproductive ecology, ecological network, community ecology, etc.
