Guanghui Dai is currently a Ph.D student of Beijing Forestry University. Dai’s area of study prior to beginning the Ph.D program was the population dynamics of clonal plants in the Loess Plateau, while the main focus of Dai’s recent research is ecological modeling and biodiesel. Ecological models are used to understand the potential distribution of biodiesel trees and predict how biodiesel trees’ distribution changes with climate change. His purpose is to identify the most suitable regions of biodiesel trees now and in the future, and to provide guidance for the planning and layout of biodiesel tree Planting Base where the biodiesel trees are able to provide a large number of raw materials for the production of bio-diesel.
