Dr. Jihong Li


Flora Conservation Department


I am a Botanist in the Orchid Conservation Section whose primary research interest is the application of phylogenetic data sets for the conservation of threatened orchids. To this end, I use sequence data (including DNA barcodes) to reconstruct phylogenetic histories and calculate phylogenetic diversity, evolutionary distinctiveness and other metrics, to help assess conservation priorities among the native Hong Kong orchids and at the scale of Indo-Burma Biodiversity Hotspot.
