In Vivo Analytical Technique Revealed the Mechanism of Metabolic Dysregulation in Plants under Carbamate Pollution
The research team developed a new solid-phase microextraction (SPME) in vivo analysis technique based on a nitrogen-rich porous polyaminal.
The Elevational Patterns of Bird Functional and Phylogenetic Structure in the Central Himalaya
How communities assemble is a central and fundamental question in ecology. Recently, the integration of functional trait and phylogenetic information into biodiversity studies provide new insight into assembly processes. The Himalayan Mountains, which are the highest mountains in the world, have extremely high mountain ecosystems (mountains with altitude higher than 5000 m), and are considered as the one of the world's biodiversity hotspots. With one of the longest elevation gradients, Himalayan Mountains provide an ideal system for exploring species distribution pattern along elevation gradient.
Long-term Trends in the Phylogenetic and Functional Diversity of Anatidae in South China Coastal Wetlands
Anatidae are widespread and well known birds, including ducks and geese wintering on the South China coastal wetlands. They are important components of wetland biodiversity and provide important ecological functions. Historically, migratory ducks were an important protein source for people living in South China. Often, more than one million ducks and geese were killed during a single hunting season. Despite their importance and dramatic declines, few studies quantifying the phylogenetic and functional historical trends of Anatidae in South China have been published.
Academician Qingping Wu's Team Published a Review Paper on Alzheimer's Disease
The team of Academician Qingping Wu and Professor Yu Ding from Institute of Microbiology, Guangdong Academy of Sciences recently published a review paper in Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition, which highlights that neuroinflammation plays a critical role in the occurrence and development of Alzheimer's disease, and its key signaling pathways. Rui Huang and Zhenjun Zhu are co-first authors.
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.
