The mysterious Asian hynobiid salamander, Protohynobius puxiongensis, was described based on a single specimen collected in 1965 and never found again since then. Because the specimen had an… Expand
A comparative study of the hyobranchial apparatus in Hynobiidae (Amphibia: Urodela).
The morphology of the adult hyobranchial apparatus has played an important role in understanding the systematics and evolution of urodeles, but the hyobranchial apparatus of hynobiid salamanders has… Expand
Redescription of an enigmatic salamander, Pseudohynobius puxiongensis (Fei et Ye, 2000) (Urodela: Hynobiidae)
Protohynobius puxiongensis Fei et Ye, 2000, a poorly known hynobiid, was described from a single specimen. The new genus was erected because of its peculiar internasal bone. Recent molecular… Expand
Characterization of conserved and novel miRNAs using deep sequencing and prediction of miRNA targets in Crucian carp (Carassius auratus).
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of endogenous small non-coding RNAs of -22 nucleotides that can base pair with their target mRNAs, which represses their translation or induces their degradation in… Expand
Karyotypic, Morphological, and Molecular Evidence for Hynobius Yunanicus as a Synonym of Pachyhynobius Shangchengensis (Urodela: Hynobiidae)
Abstract Using karyotypic, morphological, and molecular data, we compared Hynobius yunanicus with a sympatric species, Pachyhynobius shangchengensis. Similar to P. shangchengensis, H. yunanicus has a… Expand
Sexual size and shape dimorphism in the Wushan salamander, Liua shihi (Liu, 1950) (Urodela: Hynobiidae)
Abstract Sexual dimorphism in size or shape is widespread in the animal world. Many studies have explored this topic, but few have focused on Asian salamanders. In this study, we analyzed… Expand
12. Sexual dimorphism in two species of hynobiid salamanders ( Hynobius leechii and Salamandrella keyserlingii )
Sexual dimorphism is a widespread phenomenon throughout the animal kingdom and a key topic in evolutionary biology. In this study, we quantified patterns of sexual dimorphism in two hynobiid… Expand
Sexual Dimorphism in Yellow-Spotted Salamander, Pseudohynobius flavomaculatus (Urodela: Hynobiidae)
Sexual dimorphism is a widespread phenomenon throughout animal kingdom, and is a key topic of evolutionary biology. Here we examined the sexual dimorphism of morphometric characters in a species… Expand
Comparison of vomerine tooth rows in juvenile and adult Hynobius guabangshanensis (Urodela: Hynobiidae)
In this note, the vomerine tooth rows of juveniles and adults H. guabangshanensis are described and compared. The vomerine tooth rows are long and posteriorly directed, and arranged in a V-shape in… Expand
Tributyltin exposure causes lipotoxicity responses in the ovaries of rockfish, Sebastiscus marmoratus.
Tributyltin (TBT) is a well-studied endocrine disruptor in mollusks and fishes. Recently, TBT is also recognized as a metabolic disruptor. Since abnormal lipids metabolism can induce negative effects… Expand
