 简历:
 

蔡晨阳,1988年生,江苏兴化人。现任中国科学院南京地质古生物研究所研究员,英国布里斯托大学荣誉研究员。20107月毕业于山东农业大学生命科学学院,获理学学士学位。20157月于中国科学院大学(中国科学院南京地质古生物研究所)获得博士学位。曾获美国Field自然历史博物馆访问学者奖学金、哈佛大学比较动物学博物馆Ernst Mayr游学基金和英国皇家学会牛顿国际学者基金等资助多次赴美国、法国、瑞士和澳大利亚的博物馆、高校和科研院所访问交流并开展合作研究。曾获中国科学院院长特别奖和中国科学院优秀博士学位论文奖。曾获2015度江苏省科学技术一等奖(4/8)。部分成果入选2017年度中国古生物学大进展。2017年入选中国科学院青年创新促进会会员,2018年入选江苏省“333工程培养对象(第三层次),2020年入选中科院南京地质古生物研究所李四光地层古生物人才计划(B类)。目前担任美国古生物学会官方刊物Journal of PaleontologySwiss Journal of Palaeontology杂志的副主编,担任国际古昆虫学会官方刊物Palaeoentomology编委以及国际古昆虫学会科学委员会委员。主要研究成果概括如下: 

一、昆虫亲代抚育的起源

系统研究了中侏罗世道虎沟生物群、早白垩世热河生物群和白垩纪中期缅甸琥珀中的葬甲化石,将该科化石记录提前了1.3亿年。通过对葬甲触角末端密布微型化学感受器的研究,证明中侏罗世葬甲是已知最古老的大自然清道夫。早白垩世葬甲腹背板发育两列发音锉,是葬甲抚育后代的关键构造,代表了已知最早的亚社会性昆虫(Cai et al., 2014, PNAS)。论文发表后激起了化石节肢动物抚育后代行为的研究热潮。Toussaint & Condamine (2015)专门撰文论述葬甲科最早化石的发现对重建葬甲科演化历史具有决定性意义。“Recent discoveries changed substantially our knowledge of the fossil record in this family. These newly discovered fossils extend the earliest records of carrion beetles (Silphidae) by about 130 Myr.”(最新发现的化石深刻地改变了人们对葬甲化石记录的认识,它将化石记录推前了约1.3亿年)。 

二、昆虫化石揭示陆地生态系统功能的演化

率先在国内开展白垩纪缅甸琥珀生物群的研究,于2014年发表首篇由中国人领衔的缅甸琥珀昆虫的研究论文,发现了最古老的铠甲化石,掀起了我国缅甸琥珀内含物的研究热潮。将激光共聚焦和荧光显微技术推广应用于琥珀内含物的研究(Cai & Huang, 2014, Naturwissenschaften),取得良好的效果。

1)结构色和生物发光:系统研究了缅甸琥珀中多样化的具金属光泽的昆虫,发现纯净而强烈的颜色可在多种昆虫体表保存下来。利用琥珀超薄切片、扫描电子显微镜和透射电子显微镜等技术手段,揭示了青蜂体表的蓝绿色是由多层重复出现的纳米级结构(多层反射膜)形成,属于一种典型的结构色。证明了纳米级光学结构可在地质历史中稳定保存,否定了前人昆虫金属色不能在中生代化石中保存的观点,并对认识早期昆虫结构色生态功能的演化具有重要意义(Cai et al., 2020, Proceedings B)。在缅甸琥珀中发现了叩甲总科发光甲虫支系的一个新科,即白垩光萤科,揭示了叩甲总科昆虫躯体软化和生物发光早期演化的关键过渡阶段(Li et al., 2021, Proceedings B)

2)甲虫与真菌的关系:证明了白垩纪中期专性菌食甲虫的生物多样性(Cai et al., 2016, Proceedings BGimmel et al., 2019, Proceedings B);系统研究了缅甸琥珀中多样性的蘑菇化石,并对严格取食高等真菌的巨须隐翅虫进行功能形态学研究,证实了早白垩世蘑菇的多样性,并将蘑菇的演化历史推前了2500万年(Cai et al., 2017, Nat. Commun.)。在缅甸琥珀中发现多种现代仅分布于南半球的甲虫类群,如澳洲蕈甲科和球胸拳甲属,证明了其现生物种分布模式为孑遗分布,并揭示了其长期形态演化停滞的形成原因(Cai et al., 2019, Proceedings B)

3)甲虫与动物的关系:在缅甸琥珀中发现一类形态特化的毛螱隐翅虫,它们具有典型的防御体型。通过古今昆虫形态对比研究和功能形态学分析,证明其代表已知最古老的社会性寄生昆虫,揭示早期昆虫复杂的社会性寄生行为(Cai et al., 2017, Curr. Biol.)。发现2种突眼隐翅虫,罕见地保存了由下唇特化而来的捕食器官,可用来捕捉快速移动的猎物。证明了突眼隐翅虫在其演化的早期阶段已经进化出特殊的捕食器官,对理解特化捕食器官的早期演化具有重要意义(Cai et al., 2019, Curr. Biol.)

4)甲虫与植物的关系:在缅甸琥珀中发现了一类独特的扁甲及其取食的苏铁花粉,证明了甲虫与苏铁之间传粉关系的建立不晚于侏罗纪早期,远早于被子植物及其传粉者的起源和兴盛(Cai et al., 2018, Curr. Biol.)。美国学者Carmichael2019)撰文评价道:“Cai et al. have demonstrated for the first time that insect pollination occurred much earlier in the fossil record than previously demonstrated(蔡晨阳等首次证明了化石记录中的昆虫传粉行为出现得远比之前认识的早)。美国古生物学家Conrad Labandeira在接受The Scientist网站采访时高度评价道:“It’s a very interesting and intriguing paper(这是一篇引人入胜的论文)“The authors did a pretty good job of looking at this specimen and putting it in its appropriate phylogenetic context and looking at the pollen and putting that into a phylogenetic context and then combining the two into an ecological relationship that goes all the way back to the early part of the Mesozoic(作者们完成了一项很棒的工作,他们将甲虫化石放在合理的系统位置,又将苏铁花粉放在合理的系统位置,进而将二者融合成一种可追溯到中生代早期的生态关系)。论文发表后,掀起了国内外缅甸琥珀昆虫传粉研究的热潮。在缅甸琥珀中发现了一类极其罕见的短翅花甲标本,通过对其背部、腿部以及身体附近的真双子叶被子植物的三沟型花粉和花粉簇,以及两枚由相同花粉组成的长形甲虫粪便的研究,揭示了白垩纪中期甲虫为真双子叶被子植物传粉的直接证据,对理解昆虫与被子植物的协同演化关系的演化具有重要意义(Tihelka et al., 2021, Nat. Plants) 

三、系统发育基因组学与演化时间树

1)昆虫分子系统学:利用前人发表的龙虱总科的转录组数据,结合首次引入到昆虫系统学研究中的氨基酸矩阵的质量控制手段,去除原始矩阵中失去系统学意义的噪音,选用更优的位点异质性模型,重构了龙虱总科各科之间的系统发育关系(Cai et al., 2020, MPE),证明了基于形态特征的系统发育与分子系统树结果是完全一致的。这套数据管理手段和模型选择等方法为今后昆虫乃至其他生物的系统发育基因组学研究开辟了新思路。对隐翅虫亚科甲虫的分子系统关系进行了重新分析,排除了不恰当外群的干扰,并采用更优的核苷酸替代模型,得到了与基于形态学的系统关系相一致的演化树,并重新确立了隐翅虫亚科的分类框架(Cai et al., 2019, Sci. Rep.; Tihelka et al., 2020, Insects)。基于线粒体组数据和位点异质模型构建了西方蜜蜂各亚种之间的系统发育关系,提出西方蜜蜂可能起源于北非或中东的新观点,否定了其起源于欧洲或非洲热带的假说(Tihelka et al., 2020, Sci. Rep.)

2)跳蚤的系统位置:通过对开源组学数据的挖掘和深入系统发育基因组学分析,确立了吸吻类(长翅目、蚤目和双翅目)昆虫内部的系统发育关系,明确了跳蚤是现生长翅目小蝎蛉科的姊妹群,揭示了跳蚤其实是一类特化的蝎蛉,并将蚤目降级为长翅目的一个次目(Tihelka et al., 2020, Palaeoentomology)。这种演化关系也得到了中生代过渡性跳蚤形态证据的支持(Huang et al., 2012, Nature),这项成果将对现生昆虫分类体系产生深远的影响。

3)竹节虫的演化历史:利用开源的转录组数据重构了竹节虫目的系统发育关系,解决了叶的系统位置;重新建立了竹节虫目的演化时间框架,证明冠群竹节虫起源于二叠纪三叠纪,否定了竹节虫白垩纪起源的观点(Tihelka et al., 2020, R. Soc. Open Sci.)
