Chinese academic visits Perth for Biomonitoring training course
Following a visit by the directors of BioMonitoring International to China in 2012, lecturer in entomology Dr Li Qiao from Southwest Forestry University in Kunming, recently visited Perth to receive training in biomonitoring. Li Qiao is using invertebrates as bioindicators in modified low woodlands north of Kunming. Such areas are under pressure from expansion of village farms, grazing by cattle and establisment of plantation trees. She intends to apply some of the techniques and analytical techniques she learned to her work back in China.
