In 1998, Xin was recruited by Li Bo, an academician at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, to joi

Xin was keen to start the work, but Li suddenly died six months into the project. After taking three months to ove

rcome her sorrow, Xin decided to finish Li’s vision to build the observation and research station at Hulunbuir.上海419论坛

Each year, when the grass began to grow in Ma

y, Xin would go to Hulunbuir, and only return when the grass had dried up in November.

male out of all the executives staffing the 53 wild scientific stations across China.

After years of observation and experiments on the Hulunbuir grasslands, Xin mapped out the key dir

ection for research there, filling in the gaps in analysis into meadow steppe ecosystems through observation and research.上海419论坛女神会所

She studied ecosystem modeling for her doctoral degree. By combining all the data he

r team had collected, Xin realized it could be used to guide herdsmen to better grazing pastures.

“As a 21-year-old I visited the Gannan grasslands. At 22, I went to the Qinghai-Tibet Platea上海419论坛女神会所

u. Aged 25 to 27 I visited the Songnen Plain, and at 28 I traveled to the grasslands in the mountain regions of sou

thern China. At the age of 29, I was in Hulunbuir,” Xin says. “Each grassland has its own personality.”上海419论坛女神会所

Field work on the grasslands involved a lot of driving, and Xin spent hours chatting with the driver and watching the road.
