The results highlight the importance of seasonal development of microphytobenthos as an available food source during the critical period of gamete production and growth for both suspension- and deposit-feeding bivalves.
Mytilid mussels: global habitat engineers in coastal sediments
Although soft bottom mytilid mussels generally enhance habitat heterogeneity and species diversity at the ecosystem level, mussel beds themselves are not universal centres of biodiversity, but the effects on associated species are site specific.
Congener comparison of native (Zostera marina) and introduced (Z. japonica) eelgrass at multiple scales within a Pacific Northwest estuary
Z. japonica’s successful invasion appears related to small size and high reproductive output, allowing it to spread quickly in a variable and stressful intertidal environment where competitive effects are low.
Hypoxia and benthic community recovery in Korean coastal waters.
Genus-specific commensalism of the galeommatoid bivalve Koreamya arcuata (A. Adams, 1856) associated with lingulid brachiopods

Shell morphology and DNA sequences of the ectosymbiotic bivalves Koreamya (Montacutidae) attached to two different species of inarticulate brachiopods Lingula collected from South Korea suggest that K. arcuata lives commensally with at least two species of Lingula and that its shell morphology may vary according to the host species.
Polydorid species (Polychaeta: Spionidae) associated with commercially important mollusk shells in Korean waters
Cloning and characterization of microRNAs from porcine skeletal muscle and adipose tissue
The results expand the number of known porcine miRNAs and provide useful information for further investigating the biological functions ofmiRNAs associated with growth and development of skeletal muscle or adipose tissue in pig.
Changes in cellular microRNA expression induced by porcine circovirus type 2-encoded proteins
Gene ontology analysis of the putative targets of these miRNAs identified transcriptional regulation as the most significantly enriched biological process, while KEGG pathway analysis revealed significant enrichment for several pathways including MAPK signaling, which is activated during PCV2 infection.
