Education background
Born in a remote and backward county named Jiangkou in Guizhou Province, Southwest China in 1956, Mr. Dequn ZHOU finished his primary and middle school education in his hometown. Prof. Zhou received his bachelor degree in 1982 from Beijing Forestry University in the field of Forest Protection. In 1985 Zhou was granted with his master degree of Forest Pathology from Southwest Forestry College (SWFC) in Kunming. After he was employed as teach faculty for years, with fellowship awarded by Winrock International and the Ford Foundation (USA), Zhou went to the University of the Philippines at Los Banos for non-degree training in the field of Environmental Science and Environmental Impact Assessment in 1994. Afterwards, supported by the Ford Foundation and Winrock International with fellowship, Zhou studied at Asian Institute of Management (AIM) in Manila from 1994-1995 in the specialty of Development Management. After graduated from AIM with his second master degree (Master in Development Management) in 1995, Zhou returned to SWFC and appointed as dean for International Cooperation. From 1997-2001, Zhou studied at the University of Hong Kong for his Ph.D. study of fungal ecology and biodiversity.
After he received his Ph.D. degree in 2001, Dr. Zhou continued his teaching affairs at SWFC. Appointed as Dean, Faculty of Conservation Biology, SWFC, Dr. Zhou was promoted as professor since October, 2001. Prof. Zhou hosted and finished more than ten research projects with the Chinese government awards in the field of mycology and conservation biology.
Currently Prof. Zhou joined Kunming University of Science and Technology. Being one of sponsors, Prof. Zhou acts as vice director, International Fungal Research and Development Center (IFRD) in charge of fundraising and international cooperation, Chinese Academy of Forestry, China. Prof. Zhou also published about 40 scientific papers in Chinese and international journals. The recent key publications are listed as follows:

Biological Control: Biocontrol of soil-borne plant diseases by Trichoderma spp. Aims of this study are mainly focused to found more strains of Trichoderma and their potential to antagonize plant pathogens. By applying those Trichoderma into soil, some soil-borne plant diseases are expected to be control.
2. Fungal diversity (1): A project on biodiversity and distribution of fungi mainly in Xylariales from China has been carried out. A series of collections from selected sites in the Northern China have made since 2004 and many interesting species have been identified and some of them are new Chinese records. Collections and identification are continuing.
3. Fungal diversity (2): Freshwater fungal diversity from Shandong Province, part of the larger project involving fresh water fungal diversity in the Far East Asia, that has just started.
