The complex climatic and geological history of Southeast Asia has shaped this region’s high biodiversity. In particular, sea level fluctuations associated with repeated glacial cycles during the Pleistocene both facilitated, and limited, connectivity between populations. In this study, we used data from two mitochondrial and three anonymous nuclear markers to determine whether a fresh/brackish water killifish, Aplocheilus panchax, Hamilton, 1822, could be used to further understand how climatic oscillations and associated sea level fluctuations have...

Small temperature variations are a key regulator of reproductive growth and assimilate storage in oil palm (Elaeis guineensis)

Naoki Tani, Zubaidah Aimi Abdul Hamid, Natra Joseph, Othman Sulaiman, Rokiah Hashim, Takamitsu Arai, Akiko Satake, Toshiaki Kondo & Akihiko Kosugi
Oil palm is an important crop for global vegetable oil production, and is widely grown in the humid tropical regions of Southeast Asia. Projected future climate change may well threaten palm oil production. However, oil palm plantations currently produce large amounts of unutilised biological waste. Oil palm stems – which comprise two-thirds of the waste - are especially relevant because they can contain high levels of non-structural carbohydrates (NSC) that can serve as feedstock for...

Influence of music on driver psychology and safety-relevant behaviours: a multi-study inductive content analysis

Costas I. Karageorghis, William Payre, Luke W. Howard, Garry Kuan, Elias Mouchlianitis, Nick Reed & Andrew M. Parkes
Underpinned by pragmatism and symbolic interactionism, an inductive content analysis was conducted to assess driving experiences under a variety of music conditions. Many quantitative studies have addressed the effects of music on drivers, but there has been a conspicuous dearth of qualitative research to provide a more nuanced understanding of music-related phenomena. Data collection took place over three simulated driving studies, each with different tasks/participants (Study 1 – n = 34, Study 2 – n...

Effect of high-intensity interval training on aerobic capacity and fatigue among patients with prostate cancer: a meta-analysis

Ming Chang, Junguo Wang, Hairul A. Hashim, Shihao Xie & Adam A. Malik
Abstract Objective This study focused on evaluating whether high-intensity interval training (HIIT) had an effect on aerobic capacity and fatigue among patients with prostate cancer (PCa) and exploring its effect on the immune system of PCa patients. Methods To investigate the potential effect of HIIT on patients with prostate cancer, a meta-analysis was carried out. From January 2012 to August 2022, studies that met predefined criteria were searched in the Scopus, PubMed, Web of Science,...

A survey of resident physicians’ perceptions of competency-based education in standardized resident training in China: a preliminary study

Qi Chen, Ming Li, Na Wu, Xue Peng, GuangMin Tang, Heng Cheng, LiuLing Hu, Bin Yang & ZhongLi Liao
Abstract Background Understanding resident physicians’ perceptions of competency-based medical education(CBME) may help improve approaches for implementing such education in standardized resident training (SRT). We conducted surveys of residents in China to identify their perceptions of CBME and determine the degree to which such education impacts their career plans. Methods Questionnaire contained a total of 24 questions, which were answered using multiple choice or yes/no, was distributed to residents who were undergoing SRT, regardless of specialty,...

Deep eutectic solvent-based emulsification liquid-liquid microextraction coupled with HPLC-UV for the analysis of phenoxy acid herbicides in paddy field water samples

, Nurul Yani Rahim, Rania Edrees Adam Mohammad, Noorfatimah Yahaya & Mazidatulakmam Miskam
An emulsification liquid-liquid microextraction (ELLME) method was successfully developed using phenolic based deep eutectic solvent (DES) as an extraction solvent for the determination of phenoxy acid herbicides, dicamba and MCPA in environmental water samples. Five different phenolics based DES were successfully synthesized by using phenol (DES 1), 2-chlorophenol (DES 2), 3-chlorophenol (DES 3), 4-chlorophenol (DES 4) and 3,4-dichlorophenol (DES 6) as the hydrogen-bond donor (HBD) and choline chloride as the hydrogen-bond acceptor (HBA). The DESs...

Functional miscibility and thermomechanical properties enhancement of substituted phthalic acetylated modified chitin filler in biopolymer composite

The miscibility between hydrophobic and hydrophilic biopolymers has been of significant challenge. This study used a novel simplified chitin modification method to produce phthalic - chitin using phthalic anhydride in a substitution reaction. The FT-IR functional group analysis was used to confirm the substitution reaction. The modified chitin was used as compatibiliser in PLA/starch biocomposite to enhance its properties. The biocomposite was prepared using melt extrusion and compression moulding technique. The biocomposite's morphological, thermomechanical, and...

A Unified Framework for Specification Tests of Continuous Treatment Effect Models

Wei Huang, Oliver Linton & Zheng Zhang
We propose a general framework for the specification testing of continuous treatment effect models. We assume a general residual function, which includes the average and quantile treatment effect models as special cases. The null models are identified under the unconfoundedness condition and contain a nonparametric weighting function. We propose a test statistic for the null model in which the weighting function is estimated by solving an expanding set of moment equations. We establish the asymptotic...

Fecal microbiota dynamics and its relationship to diarrhea and health in dairy calves

Hongwei Chen, Yalu Liu, Kailang Huang, Bin Yang, Yuanyuan Zhang, Zhongtang Yu & Jiakun Wang
Abstract Background Diarrhea is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in young calves, resulting in considerable economic loss for dairy farms. To determine if some gut microbes might have resistance to dysbiotic process with calf diarrhea by dictating the microbial co-occurrence patterns from birth to post-weaning, we examined the dynamic development of the gut microbiota and diarrhea status using two animal trials, with the first trial having 14 Holstein dairy calves whose fecal samples...

Omicron variants escape the persistent SARS-CoV-2-specific antibody response in 2-year COVID-19 convalescents regardless of vaccination

Miao Wang, Bing Zhou, Qing Fan, Xinrong Zhou, Xuejiao Liao, Jingyan Lin, Zhenghua Ma, Jingke Dong, Haiyan Wang, Xiangyang Ge, Bin Ju & Zheng Zhang
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the emergence of various SARS-CoV-2 variants, a comprehensive evaluation of long-term efficacy of antibody response in convalescent individuals is urgently needed. Several longitudinal studies had reported the antibody dynamics after SARS-CoV-2 acute infection, but the follow-up was mostly limited to 1 year or 18 months at the maximum. In this study, we investigated the durability, potency, and susceptibility to immune evasion of SARS-CoV-2-specific antibody in COVID-19 convalescents for 2...
