A Genetic Evaluation of Seed Dispersal in the Neotropical Tree Jacaranda copaia (Bignoniaceae)
A genetic approach is used to describe seed dispersal patterns accurately in a natural population of the Neotropical tree species Jacaranda copaia (Bignoniaceae), and microsatellite genotypes from maternally derived tissue on the diaspore are used to identify which individual of all possible adult trees in the population was the true source of a given seed collected after it dispersed.
Stop and Smell the Pollen: The Role of Olfaction and Vision of the Oriental Honey Buzzard in Identifying Food
It is suggested that olfaction should be considered in the design of behavioral and genetic studies to better understand the use of multiple senses in avian behaviors.
Seasonal space use and habitat selection of sambar in Taiwan
Characterization of Debarking Behavior by Sambar Deer (Rusa unicolor) in Taiwan
It is hypothesize that the preference of debarking by sambar for specific species and younger trees may eventually impact forest regeneration and succession.

In the reference group, optimum assignment accuracy was achievable achieved through a combination of different markers by ranking the heterozygosity, FST and allelic number of close lineage populations, suggesting empirical examination of assignment-error rates is required if discernible levels of co-ancestry exist.
Isolation and characterization of 10 microsatellite DNA markers in the oriental honey buzzard (Pernis ptilorhyncus)
Ten new microsatellite markers for the oriental honey buzzard (Pernis ptilorhyncus) are designed and tested and tested their utility on 44 individuals, finding them to be effective in studying the ecology of this species in Taiwan.
Bark-Stripping Behavior of Formosan Sambar (Rusa Unicolor Swinhoii) Caught on Camera and its Implications
Bark stripping behavior in two adult male Formosan sambar (Rusa unicolor swinhoii) was photographed in a Taiwan red cypress (Chamaecyparis formosensis) plantation in Yushan National Park for the
Can Ferret Badgers (Melogale moschata) Cross the Rabies Epidemic Boundary in Western Taiwan?
Low levels of genetic differentiation and high levels of gene flow across the river indicated that the Da-An River was not a permanent barrier to rabies, and it was suggested that an immunization zone should be established along the epidemic boundary before further rabies expansion crosses it.
