The consequences of climate change are becoming increasingly evident in the Tibetan Plateau, represented by glaciers retreating and lakes expanding, but the biological response to climate change by plateau-lake ecosystems is poorly known. In this study, we applied dendrochronology methods to develop a growth index chronology with otolith increment widths of(More)
In this paper, the sphere decoding (SD) detector for the generalized space-time shift keying (G-STSK) scheme is developed to reduce the computational complexity of the optimal detector. The proposed SD detector consists of a series of SD algorithms with each one associated with an activated dispersion matrix pattern. Specifically, first, a lower bound of(More)
In the generalized space-time shift keying (G-STSK) modulation, the constraint of the activated dispersion matrix pattern makes the application of the sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) detector become nontrivial. In this paper, the pattern-aware variants of the stochastic SMC (SSMC) detector and the deterministic SMC (DSMC) detector for the G-STSK modulation are(More)
Daily increment validation in fish otolith is fundamental to studies on fish otolith microstructure, age determination and life history traits, and thus is critical for species conservation and fishery management. However, it has never been done for Schizothoracine fish, which is the dominant component of fish fauna in the Tibetan Plateau. This study(More)
This work investigates a possibility degree-based micro immune optimization approach to seek the optimal solution of nonlinear interval number programming with constraints. Such approach is designed under the guideline of the theoretical results acquired in the current work, relying upon interval arithmetic rules, interval order relation and immune theory.(More)
The effective conservation and management of threatened species requires comprehensive knowledge about resource utilisation. Here we integrated tissue stable isotope analysis and biotelemetry to identify the predominant dietary resources of two sympatric species of freshwater turtle, and locate where those items were acquired. We deployed an array of(More)
The water level oscillation of endorheic lakes and extent change of glaciers associated with the Asian monsoon are known as prominent representatives of climatic and environmental events in the Tibetan Plateau during the Quaternary. However, details process in spatial and temporal changes are still debated. We use the schizothoracines as a palaeoclimatic(More)
Understanding food webs is important and useful for planning environmental conservation, management and restoration. However, research on food webs is not uniform globally; it tends to be concentrated in specific areas or ecosystem types, and would hinder our understanding of food webs and ecosystem processes. This study examined the trends in food web(More)
The East Asian monsoon and related seasonal rain belts are assumed to be significantly variable at intraseasonal, interannual, and interdecadal time scales, and largely determine the hydrology and ecological processes of the streams and rivers in this region. This study investigated the spatiotemporal variation in fish assemblages and the relative(More)
