Adaptation to deep-sea chemosynthetic environments as revealed by mussel genomes
Hydrothermal vents and methane seeps are extreme deep-sea ecosystems that support dense populations of specialized macrobenthos such as mussels. But the lack of genome information hinders the… Expand

Since 1990s, various booster biocides have been increasingly used as substitutes of organotins. However, knowledge about their toxicities on tropical/sub-tropical marine species is significantly… Expand
Air quality during the 2008 Beijing Olympics: secondary pollutants and regional impact
Abstract. This paper presents the first results of the measurements of trace gases and aerosols at three surface sites in and outside Beijing before and during the 2008 Olympics. The official air… Expand
Palatability of macrophytes to the invasive freshwater snail Pomacea canaliculata: Differential effects of multiple plant traits
Summary 1. By selective grazing, invasive grazers can alter macrophyte-herbivore relationships in shallow freshwater bodies. Evaluating the palatability of macrophytes and understanding the… Expand
Insights from an Integrated View of the Biology of Apple Snails (Caenogastropoda: Ampullariidae)
ABSTRACT Apple snails (Ampullariidae) are among the largest and most ecologically important freshwater snails. The introduction of multiple species has reinvigorated the field and spurred a… Expand

Bathymodiolid mussels dominate hydrothermal vents, cold methane/sulfide-hydrocarbon seeps, and other sites of organic enrichment. Here, we aimed to explore the innate immune system and detoxification… Expand
The deep-sea glass sponge Lophophysema eversa harbours potential symbionts responsible for the nutrient conversions of carbon, nitrogen and sulfur.
Glass sponge (Hexactinellida, Porifera) is a special lineage because of its unique tissue organization and skeleton material. Structure and physiology of glass sponge have been extensively studied.… Expand
Understanding the Underwater Behaviour of Scuba Divers in Hong Kong
Diving-related activities may constitute a major threat to coral reefs. This study aimed to quantify the impact of diving in Hong Kong on hard corals and understand how socio-economic characteristics… Expand
Energy content at metamorphosis and growth rate of the early juvenile barnacle Balanus amphitrite
The energetic cost of metamorphosis in cyprids of the barnacle Balanus amphitrite Darwin was estimated by quantification of lipid, carbohydrate and protein contents. About 38–58% (4–5 mJ… Expand
Proteomic basis of stress responses in the gills of the pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas.
The Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas is one of the dominant sessile inhabitants of the estuarine intertidal zone, which is a physically harsh environment due to the presence of a number of stressors.… Expand
