Composition and genetic diversity of picoeukaryotes in subtropical coastal waters as revealed by 454 pyrosequencing
TLDR
Diversity of picoeukaryotes was higher in an oligomesotrophic bay than in a eutrophic bay, and the total diversity was underestimated at a genetic difference of ⩽2%. Expand
Microbial diversity in shallow‐water hydrothermal sediments of Kueishan Island, Taiwan as revealed by pyrosequencing
TLDR
The study revealed the contrasting effects of venting on the benthic bacterial and archaeal communities, and showed that the sediments of the shallow‐waters hydrothermal vents were dominated by chemoautotrophic bacteria. Expand
Genetic diversity of picoeukaryotes in a semi-enclosed harbour in the subtropical western Pacific Ocean
TLDR
Seasonal variations in picoeukaryote composition were more pronounced in the open sea libraries than in the semi-enclosed harbour libraries, and a differential spatial distribution of OTUs was observed between samples collected from the 2 sampling sites. Expand
Simultaneous chromate reduction and azo dye decolourization by Brevibacterium casei: azo dye as electron donor for chromate reduction.
TLDR
A new mechanism was proposed for chromate reduction coupling with AO7 decolourization by B. casei, which can reduce Cr(VI) in the presence of the azo dye Acid Orange 7 under nutrient-limiting condition and resulted in a purple coloured intermediate. Expand
Community Structure, Dynamics and Interactions of Bacteria, Archaea and Fungi in Subtropical Coastal Wetland Sediments
TLDR
Redundancy analysis revealed temperature as the major driver of the seasonal patterns of bacterial and fungal communities but also highlighted the importance of interkingdom biotic factors in shaping the community structure of all three kingdoms, facilitating current understanding of the microbial ecology of subtropical coastal wetlands. Expand
Individual variability in the swimming behavior of the sub-tropical copepod Oncaea venusta (Copepoda: Poecilostomatoida)
TLDR
Behavioral fractal analysis demonstrates a promising ability to elucidate the complexity of zooplankton behavior. Expand
Gill damage to juvenile orange-spotted grouper Epinephelus coioides (Hamilton, 1822) following exposure to suspended sediments
TLDR
Polluted sediments from VH produced addictive or synergistic effects between SS and chemical contaminants on fish, and clogging of gills by SS produced hypoxic-like responses in fish. Expand
Taxonomic Composition and Grazing Impact of Calanoid Copepods in Coastal Waters near Nuclear Power Plants in Northern Taiwan
TLDR
Grazing impact, estimated as the fraction of chlorophyll removed from 1% of water by the calanoid copepod assemblage, ranged from 0.05% to 11%, suggesting that the grazing pressure of calanoids on phytoplankton in the near shore waters outside Nuclear Power Plants 1 and 2 was minor. Expand
DNA-based study of the diet of the marine calanoid copepod Calanus sinicus
TLDR
DNA-based evidence to support previous suggestions that C. sinicus could feed omnivorously on a diverse assemblage of phytoplankton, animals and bacteria is provided. Expand
