Luzhen Chen

Luzhen Chen, Professor in the College of Environment and Ecology at Xiamen University. Her research focuses on the ecology of coastal wetland ecosystems under global change. She is interested in the carbon cycling processes of mangroves, salt marshes, and seagrass beds in China's coastal areas, and has set up monitoring stations for blue carbon to systematically understand the carbon storage and carbon sequestration of coastal wetlands. She focuses on the studies of the impact of sea level rise, warming, and biological invasion on mangrove ecosystem, predicting the impact of mangrove ecosystems under climate change. Luzhen and her team also participated in several blue carbon research projects in China, and developed methodology for blue carbon trading which were used in blue carbon projects in China's mangroves and salt marshes
