Thallium (Tl) contamination in soils poses a significant threat to human health due to the high toxicity of Tl and its ready assimilation by crops. Consumption of food crops contaminated with Tl is a… Expand
Responses of seasonal and diurnal soil CO2 effluxes to land-use change from paddy fields to Lei bamboo (Phyllostachys praecox) stands
Land-use change often markedly alters soil carbon (C) dynamics such as soil surface CO2 efflux. This study aims to test the hypotheses that converting paddy fields to bamboo stands would markedly… Expand
Thallium Distribution in Sediments from the Pearl River Basin, China
Thallium (Tl) is a rare element of high toxicity. Sediments sampled in three representative locations near industries utilizing Tl-containing raw materials from the Pearl River Basin, China were… Expand

Photocatalytic degradation of commercial phoxim emulsion in aqueous suspension was investigated by using La-doped mesoporous TiO2 nanoparticles (m-TiO2) as the photocatalyst under UV irradiation.… Expand
Stereotypic Behavior and Fecal Cortisol Level in Captive Giant Pandas in Relation to Environmental Enrichment
Stereotypic behavior is exhibited by a wide range of captive animals. Its association with hormones, especially elevated cortisol level and lack of naturalistic stimuli in the environment, has been… Expand
Thallium contamination in farmlands and common vegetables in a pyrite mining city and potential health risks.
Thallium (Tl) is a trace metal of severe toxicity. Its health concerns via consumption of contaminated vegetables have often been overlooked or underestimated. This study was designed to gain insight… Expand
Application of Endophytic Bacteria to Reduce Persistent Organic Pollutants Contamination in Plants
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) accumulation in plants poses a risk to human health. POPs can be transported to plants through soil and air by abiotic or biotic processes. Their transport… Expand

As major endocrine disruptors, natural estrogens such as 17β-estradiol (E2) have been found with adverse effects on animals and humans. How to control E2 pollution as well as that of other estrogens… Expand
Simulating the rice yield change in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River under SRES B2 scenario
Abstract As one of the most important crops in China, rice accounts for 18% of the country’s total cultivated area. Increasing atmospheric CO 2 concentration and associated climate change may greatly… Expand
