Jiquan Chen is a professor at Michigan State University and has (co-)authored over 340 scientific articles, 11 books, and 11 special issues since 1992. He is broadly interested in landscape ecology & ecosystem science (LEES). His research covers several ecological frontiers, including edge effects in fragmented landscapes, ecosystem carbon/water/energy fluxes, riparian zone management, agricultural and bioenergy crops, hydrometeorology, coupled socioecological systems, dynamics of urban systems, global change, and the role of institution in shaping landscape-regions under the changing globe. His current research aims to address the sustainability of different ecosystems at landscape-region-global scales. He is a fellow in the Ecological Society of America (ESA) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
