Multidrug‐Resistant Proteus mirabilis isolates carrying blaOXA‐1 and blaNDM‐1 from wildlife in China
Microbial pathogen ecology research Group from the Wildlife Diseases and Immunology Research Center, Institute of zoology, Guangdong Academy of Sciences, conducted research on Proteus mirabilis isolated from wild animals from Shanghai Zoo, hospital, Zhengzhou zoo and illegal trafficking, and found that wild animals carried important multidrug-resistant genes blaOXA-1 and blaNDM-1. On December 2, 2020, the research results were published in integrative zoology (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/epdf/10.1111/1749-4877.12510).
Research unveiled the community assembly mechanisms of birds in the Nanling Mountain
Mixed-species bird flocks (MSF) are defined as “groups of two or more species that move and forage together”. MSFs are widely acknowledged to increase predator avoidance and foraging efficiency, and thereby increase participants’ fitness, which were often used to investigate community structure of birds. The mechanisms of community assembly suggest that biotic and abiotic filters constrain species establishment through selection on their functional traits, but it is unclear how differences in traits influence the niche dimensions of closely related bird species when they coexist in spatiotemporally heterogeneous environments.
Investigation of the Ecological Roles of Putative Keystone Taxa during Tailing Revegetation
Institute of Eco-environmental and Soil Sciences, Guangdong Academy of Sciences, has made new progress in the research on the ecological roles of tailings microorganisms in the tailing revegetation.
Cellulose based responsive materials from agricultural and forestry wastes and the application in environmental pollution control
In order to speed up the structural reform of the ecological civilization and the construction of a beautiful China, which is comprehensively elaborated by the green development and the principle of ecological protection, the eco-environmental material team is committed to the research of the high value utilization of the bio-based low value materials. The preparation technology and technology of bio-based responsive materials were proposed, and the cellulose-based environment-friendly intelligent material was successfully applied to improve environmental pollution.
