He contributed to East and Southeastern Federation of Soil Science Society (ESAFS) as a President for 2 years in 2002-2003, and also as a chairman and well organized the 6th ESAFS International Conference held in November 2003, at Taipei, Taiwan. He served as a part time Soil and Fertilizer Consultant of Food Fertilizer Technology Center for the Asian and Pacific Region (FFTC/ASPAC), for 12 years from 1999 to 2010. He organized more than 10 International workshops or symposiums to maintain the quality of soil resources of the Asia and Pacific region and also to improve the crop productivities and crop quality. His researches especially focus on the technologies of management of agricultural resources, composting, soil and environmental quality, newly developed innovative technologies on soil-crop inventory on heavy metals in the Asian region. He have edited and published 3 technical books, 40 technical bulletin of FFTC and 40 Extension Bulletin of FFTC on Soil and Fertilizer Technology for Asian and Pacific region from 1996 to now. He attended almost all the ESAFS conferences since 1990 and as a representative of Chinese Society of Soil and Fertilizer Sciences (CSSFS) to attend the business meeting of ESAFS and make a valuable contribution on the promotion of the communication and operation processing of the country members of ESAFS. He almost was invited as one of the keynote speakers or speaker of session during the ESAFS conferences held in this region.

Enhancing the methodology to establish the criteria and guidelines of soil quality, especially for heavy metals in soils. Soil nutrient dynamics of subtropical forest Ecosystem Research Significant Findings Demonstrated the soil morphological characteristics, properties, pedogenic processes and classification of different Soils Orders in Taiwan. Demonstrated the data base system and background concentrations of heavy metals in soils-plants system or polluted soils. Evaluated the remediation techniques tested in cultivated soils contaminated by heavy metals (cadmium and lead) and make recommendations for EPA. Phytoremediation of trace elements in Taiwan rural soils. Enhancing the methodology to establish the criteria and guidelines of soil quality, especially for heavy metals in soils. Soil nutrient dynamics of subtropical forest Ecosystem in south Taiwan. Future Research Plans Evaluate the soil remediation technique for soil and sediment contaminated with heavy metals (cadmium, lead, copper, and zinc) or organic materials, especially on phytoremediation of trace elements. Evaluate the guidelines of soil quality or criteria in different land uses. Enhancing the understanding of genetic processes of cultivated soils (rice-growing soils) and high mountains forest soils, especially on the volcanic soils (Andisols), Ultisols, and Spodosols.
