Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute systemic vasculitis syndrome that primarily affects infants and young children. Its etiology is unknown; however, epidemiological findings suggest that genetic predisposition underlies disease susceptibility. Taiwan has the third-highest incidence of KD in the world, after Japan and Korea. To investigate novel mechanisms(More)
Understanding processes underlying spatial distribution of tree species is fundamental to studying species coexistence and diversity. This study modeled point patterns of tree distribution, expressed by Cartesian coordinates of individual trees within a mapped forest stand, for the purpose of identifying processes that may generate spatial patterns of tree(More)
Hyperspectral remote sensing images provide more complete and detailed spectral information about ground coverage and have a great potential to identify specific plant species in vegetation covered areas. The high data dimensionality of hyperspectral data can cause substantial impact to its applications. Principal component analysis is a common technique(More)
We investigated the composition, diversity, and patterns of spatial use of an anuran community following a wetland restoration project in a managed tropical monsoon forest in southern Taiwan. Anurans comprising eight species in seven genera and four families reached a mean density of 0.025+/-0.004 anurans m(-2) within a year. The three most important(More)
The diversity and spatiotemporal variation of avifauna in different settings of tropical coral reef-karst forests on the Hengchun Peninsula, Taiwan, were examined. The short-term effects on bird assemblages following two typhoons that severely impacted Hengchun were investigated. Line-transect census recorded 46 species of birds, dominated by(More)
