Identification and Comparison of Candidate Olfactory Genes in the Olfactory and Non-Olfactory Organs of Elm Pest Ambrostoma quadriimpressum (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) Based on Transcriptome Analysis
Encoding trends that were male specific were observed for most candidate olfactory genes, which supported the existence of a female-produced sex pheromone in A. quadriimpressum and could provide valuable information and guidance for future functional studies on these genes.
Multilocus phylogeny and species delimitation within the philippinensis group (Chiroptera: Rhinolophidae)
This study performed integrated analyses of the morphology, acoustic and genetic data and constructed the first multilocus phylogeny for the philippinensis group using four mitochondrial genes, four autosomal introns and one Y‐linked intron in 95 specimens representing nine taxa.
Seasonal Changes in Gut Microbiota Diversity and Composition in the Greater Horseshoe Bat
Results show that seasonal physiological changes associated with hibernation alter the gut microbial community of R. ferrumequinum, and this study deepens the understanding of the symbiosis between hibernating mammals and gut microbes.
