Elevational patterns of frog species richness and endemic richness in the Hengduan Mountains, China: geometric constraints, area and climate effects
We studied frog biodiversity along an elevational gradient in the Hengduan Mountains, China. Endemic and non-endemic elevational diversity patterns were examined individually. Competing hypothesesExpand

Climate and history explain the species richness peak at mid‐elevation for Schizothorax fishes (Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae) distributed in the Tibetan Plateau and its adjacent regions
Aim  We studied elevational species richness patterns of Schizothorax fishes and identified the roles of ecological and evolutionary factors in shaping the patterns of elevational diversity. Expand

Conflicts between biodiversity conservation and development in a biosphere reserve
1. Integrating biodiversity conservation and the development of local communities is a major challenge for biosphere reserves. Their zonation (core, buffer and transition) is intended to promoteExpand

Potential impacts of invasive Spartina alterniflora on spring bird communities at Chongming Dongtan, a Chinese wetland of international importance
Invasive smooth cordgrass (Spartina alterniflora, hereafter Spartina) has been expanding rapidly in the estuarine wetlands at Chongming Dongtan (East China) at the expense of native sea-bulrushExpand

The history of Solidago canadensis invasion and the development of its mycorrhizal associations in newly-reclaimed land.
This study examined the associations between an invasive alien plant (Solidago canadensis L.) and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) in relation to the invasion history of S. canadensis on ChongmingExpand

Alteration of Habitat Structure and Food Resources by Invasive Smooth Cordgrass Affects Habitat Use by Wintering Saltmarsh Birds at Chongming Dongtan, East China
ABSTRACT. The exotic Smooth Cordgrass (Spartina alterniflora) has spread rapidly on the east coast of China over the past three decades and has greatly changed the native saltmarsh vegetation. WeExpand

Body Condition and Fuel Deposition Patterns of Calidrid Sandpipers During Migratory Stopover
We compared seasonal variations in body condition and fuel deposition patterns of five calidrid sandpipers at Chongming Dongtan (eastern China), a stopover site in the East Asian—Australasian Flyway.Expand

Divergences in reproductive strategy explain the distribution ranges of Vallisneria species in China
Closely related plant species usually have similar characteristics in life history, morphology and reproduction and thus similar requirements for their environment, resulting in intense interspecificExpand
