Supporting land ecosystems through action
Does your university as a body have a policy to ensure the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems associated with the university, in particular forests, mountains and drylands?

Our approach (SDG15-06)

Professor Lee Chi-Ying from the Department of Biology joined the international research team formed by Mr. Huang Wen-Shan, Chair of the Biology Department at the National Museum of Natural Science, which analysed more than ten years of data collected from Orchid Island. The results of their research showed that resource-driven territorial behaviour is the primary factor that influences animals’ life spans. A paper summarising their findings has been published by an international academic journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Science Advances (impact factor = 11.5). Inverse, a popular science publication dedicated to promoting new scientific discoveries and innovative ideas, also included a feature on the significance of their findings.
Professor Wang Su-Fen from the Department of Geography conducted research on sustainable land development to improve the safety and sustainability of national land use. These studies included ‘Constructing an Assessment System for the Cross-Dimensional Social Impacts of Rainfall Disasters: Application of Multidimensional Scaling to Disasters and Social Impact Assessment’, ‘Assessing the Effectiveness of Water and Soil Conservation and Ecosystem Services under Disasters’, ‘Characteristics and Changes of Landslides Triggered by Typhoon Soudelor in Upstream Watershed of Xindian River’, ‘Effectiveness Assessment of Water and Soil Conservation and Ecosystem Services under Disasters’, ‘Assessing the Potential Impacts of Extreme Rainfall on Landslide Disasters in Mountainous Regions in Taichung’, ‘A Study on the Influence of Multidimensional Environmental Factors on Initiating Causes of Landslide Disasters’, ‘Gauging and Analysing the Potential Impacts of Rainfall-Triggered Landslide Disasters in the Laonong River Basin’, and ‘Correlation Analysis of the Impacts of Land-Use Changes in Kaoping River Basin on the Water Conservation of the Watershed’. Professor Wang also offered her advice on sustainable national development at the preparatory meeting for the ‘Resilient Taiwan - National Water Management Conference’ held by the Water Resources Agency and the ‘2019 Seminar for Users of the Alert System’ by the National Science and Technology Centre for Disaster Reduction.
Professor Lin Tsung-Chi participated in a number of studies, including ‘Assessing the Effectiveness of Monitoring and Control of Anoplolepis Gracilipes in Kenting National Park’, ‘Monitoring and Emergency Control of Solenopsis invicta in Taichung World Flora Exposition’, ‘Development of Core Technology andSafety Assessment Model for the Industrial Chain of Pesticide-Spraying Drones: Field Experiment of Agricultural Drone for Solenopsis invicta Control and Management of Pesticide-Spraying Drone System’, ‘Investigating the Hazards and Causes of Flying Ants in Liugui District, Kaohsiung’, ‘Redefining Global Invasive Species Management: Taiwan Repositioned as the Asian Control, Forecast, and Education Centre of Solenopsis invicta Invasion’, ‘Technological Application and Product Development for the Integrated Biological Control of Solenopsis invicta (Natural Competitors and Solenopsis invicta Virus)’, and ‘2018 Comprehensive Detection of Solenopsis invicta in Taoyuan City’. Several teaching staff from the University committed themselves to providing farmers and relevant organisations with their knowledge, skills, and technical support in sustainable development and agriculture through a number of projects
