Recent photosynthates are the primary carbon source for soil microbial respiration in subtropical forests

Zhijie Yang, Teng-Chiu Lin, Lixin Wang & Yusheng Yang
Tropical and subtropical forests represent the largest terrestrial carbon pool. Elucidating the carbon sources for soil microbial respiration (Rm) in tropical and subtropical forests is of fundamental importance to the global carbon cycle in a warming world. Based on hourly measurements, we quantified Rm of in situ forest soil and soil cores from a subtropical forest. We found recent photosynthates, not soil organic carbon (SOC), contributed 88% ± 12% of the carbon source fueling Rm....

Oral presentation assessment and image reading behaviour on brain computed tomography reading in novice clinical learners: an eye-tracking study

Chi-Hung Liu, June Hung, Chun-Wei Chang, John J. H. Lin, Elaine Shinwei Huang, Shu-Ling Wang, Li-Ang Lee, Cheng-Ting Hsiao, Pi-Shan Sung, Yi-Ping Chao & Yeu-Jhy Chang
Abstract Background To study whether oral presentation (OP) assessment could reflect the novice learners’ interpretation skills and reading behaviour on brain computed tomography (CT) reading. Methods Eighty fifth-year medical students were recruited, received a 2-hour interactive workshop on how to read brain CT, and were assigned to read two brain CT images before and after instruction. We evaluated their image reading behaviour in terms of overall OP post-test rating, the lesion identification, and competency in...

The shallow-water hydrothermal vent system of Kueishan Island has been described as one of the world's most acidic and sulfide-rich marine habitats. The only recorded metazoan species living in the direct vicinity of the vents is Xenograpsus testudinatus, a brachyuran crab endemic to marine sulfide-rich vent systems. Despite the toxicity of hydrogen sulfide, X. testudinatus occupies an ecological niche in a sulfide-rich habitat, with the underlying detoxification mechanism remaining unknown. Using laboratory and field-based experiments,...

Abstract Background The Fusarium solani species complex (FSSC) comprises fungal pathogens responsible for mortality in a diverse range of animals and plants, but their genome diversity and transcriptome responses in animal pathogenicity remain to be elucidated. We sequenced, assembled and annotated six chromosome-level FSSC clade 3 genomes of aquatic animal and plant host origins. We established a pathosystem and investigated the expression data of F. falciforme and F. keratoplasticum in Chinese softshell turtle (Pelodiscus sinensis)...

Riding an escalator: upward range shift and patterns of genetic response to climate change in Acer caudatifolium

Min-Wei Chai, Yi-Ting Tseng, Hsin-Pei Lu, Min-Xin Luo, Jui-Tse Chang & Pei-Chun Liao
Aim Rapid global warming is threatening global biodiversity, and it will likely lead to varying degrees of local adaptation, particularly among plant species. Besides, rising temperatures frequently result in upslope distribution shifts towards climatic optima (i.e., the escalator effect) within a limited dispersal space, such as in insular environments. Here, we integrated ecological and genetic approaches to investigate how climate change will impact the genetic compositions and spatial distributions of Taiwan endemic maple Acer caudatifolium....

The role of a synanthropic bird in the nest niche expansion of a secondary cavity-nester to man-made structures

Jing-Chia Guo, Jo-Szu Tsai, Jhih-Syuan Wang, Ya-Wen Lin, Pei-Jen Shaner & Chih-Ming Hung
Species with similar ecological characters often compete with each other; however, a species may also facilitate the survival or reproduction of another ecologically similar species although such interaction is rarely documented in birds. Here we reported a facilitative species interaction between Asian house martins (Delichon dasypus) and russet sparrows (Passer cinnamomeus), both passerines using closed nests, in a montane farming area of Taiwan. We found that Asian house martins constructed dome-shaped nests in human houses...

Coastal uplift in the Kuroshio

Chung-Chi Chen, Chun-Yi Lu, Sen Jan, Chih-Hao Hsieh & Chih-Ching Chung
The Kuroshio is the western boundary current of the North Pacific Ocean. In the subtropical region of eastern Taiwan, a coastal uplift of the isotherms has occurred. To explore its impact on this oligotrophic ecosystem, hydrographic data along the transect line at 23.75oN were measured between September 2012 and September 2014. Results show that the intensity of coastal uplift was positively correlated to the flow volume transport of the Kuroshio. Significant dissolved inorganic nutrients were...

Genomes and associated scripts for paper: Potential millennial-scale avian declines by humans in southern China

Feng Dong, Qiang Zhang, Yi-Lin Chen, Fu-Min Lei, Shou-Hsien Li & Xiao-Jun Yang
Mounting observational records demonstrate human-caused faunal decline in recent decades, while accumulating archaeological evidence suggests an early biodiversity impact of human activities during the Holocene. A fundamental question arises concerning whether modern wildlife population declines began during early human disturbance. Here, we performed population genomic analysis of six common forest birds in East Asia to address this question. For five of them, demographic history inference based on 25-33 genomes of each species revealed dramatic population...

Niche overlap in rodents increases with competition but not ecological opportunity: A role of inter-individual difference

Pei-Jen Shaner & Ling-Hua Ke
Niche variation at population level mediates niche packing (i.e., patterns of species’ spread within the niche space) and species coexistence at community level. Competition and ecological opportunity (resource diversity) are two of the main mechanisms underlying niche variation. Dense niche packing could occur through increased niche partitioning or increased niche overlap. In this study we used stable carbon and nitrogen isotope data of 635 individual rodents from 4 species across 9 sites in the montane...

Reoxygenation in the East China Sea

Chung-Chi Chen, Dong Ko, Gwo-Ching Gong, Chun-Chi Lien, Wen-Chen Chou, Hung-Jen Lee, Fuh-Kwo Shiah & Yu-Sin Huang
Hypoxia and upwelling co-occurred in the summer, and the well-mixed water often reaches the subsurface in the East China Sea (ECS), especially off the Changjiang River estuary. The impact of upwelling on the hypoxia and, therefore, on the ECS ecosystem is not well evaluated. This study demonstrates several positive and negative effects of upwelling on hypoxia and its impact on the ecosystem. This dataset contains data collected from four cruises in the summer of 2003...
