Since 2007, green tides have occurred along the coast of the Yellow Sea, China. The green tide extended to 50,000 km2 (floating area) within 2–3 months and the calculated covering area was about 400 km2 in 2010. These facts implied that the growth and reproduction of the dominant species Ulva prolifera were stimulated. We observed that 1 cm2 blades (single(More)
Compositions, changes and biomass of attached Ulva species on Porphyra rafts along the radial sandbank in the Yellow Sea were investigated, and potential contributions to green tides was analyzed. Ulva prolifera, Ulva flexuosa and Ulva linza were all appeared throughout the investigated period. U. prolifera and U. flexuosa dominated attached Ulva population(More)
Green algal blooms have occurred in the Yellow Sea for seven consecutive years from 2007 to 2013. In this study, satellite image analysis and field shipboard observations indicated that the Ulva blooms in 2013 originated in the Rudong coast. The spatial distribution of Ulva microscopic propagules in the Southern Yellow Sea also supported that the blooms(More)
The tetrahydroquinoline moiety is a structural feature of many natural products. By using a domino reaction of aromatic amines and cyclic enol ethers or 2-hydroxy cyclic ether catalyzed by indium chloride in water, various tetrahydroquinoline derivatives were synthesized efficiently. Most cyclization products showed cis selectivity. The use of(More)
The hypothesis that nitrogen and phosphorus can have a positive effect on the bloom formation of Ulva prolifera along the southern coast of the Yellow Sea was examined. The nutrient enrichment on the growth and photosynthetic carbon assimilation of U. prolifera were investigated in laboratory. Four nitrogen and phosphorus treatments were established: high(More)
In this study, the influence of temperature and light intensity on the growth of seedlings and adults of four species of green tide algae (Ulvaprolifera, Ulvacompressa, Ulva flexuosa and Ulvalinza) from the Yellow Sea was evaluated. The results indicated that the specific growth rate (SGR) of seedlings was much higher than that of adults for the four(More)
Massive green algae blooms became an environmental disaster in the Yellow Sea from 2008 to 2013. Recent studies suggested that recurrences of early aggregates of macroalgae were found over the Subei Bank, a unique shallow radial sand ridge system off the Jiangsu coast, China. Yearly field surveys have been carried out over this bank during the past five(More)
Since 2007, Ulva macroalgal blooms have occurred along the coastal areas of the Yellow Sea, China. These blooms are dominated by fragments of Ulva prolifera in the early stages of development. The objectives of this study were to identify the primary mode of asexual reproduction for U. prolifera and to evaluate the contribution of these thalli fragments to(More)
Spinosad is a macrocyclic lactone insecticide that acts primarily at the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) of target insects. Here we describe evidence that high levels of resistance to spinosad in the diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella) are associated with a three amino acid (3-aa) deletion in the fourth transmembrane domain (TM4) of the nAChR(More)
The bioremediation efficiency of China's largest scale Porphyra yezoensis cultivation for removing dissolved nutrients and controlling harmful algae was studied in the radial sandbanks waters of Jiangsu Province in the year 2012-2013. Mean nutrient concentration values in the P. yezoensis cultivation area were significantly lower than those in the(More)
