Horizontal and elevational phylogeographic patterns of Himalayan and Southeast Asian forest passerines (Aves: Passeriformes)
This work estimates timings of lineage splits among close relatives from the north Palaearctic, the Sino‐Himalayan mountain forests and from adjacent Southeast Asia, and compares phylogeographic affinities and timing of radiation among members of avian communities from different elevational belts.

SummaryMales of the wool-carder bee, Anthidium manicatum, patrol clumps of garden plants. Females of this species visit these plants for pollen, nectar, and pubescence; they also mate there. Females…
Prayer animal release in Taiwan
A molecular phylogeny of bullfinches Pyrrhula Brisson, 1760 (Aves: Fringillidae).
Geographic Variation of the Highly Complex Hwamei (Garrulax canorus) Songs
Mainland HwAMEi songs were more complex than Taiwan Hwamei songs, containing significantly more syllable types, more variations in syllable changes, larger syntactic combinations, and fewer repeated syllables per song.
The Spider Family Theridiidae (Arachnida: Araneae) from Orchid Island, Taiwan: Descriptions of Six New and One Newly Recorded Species
The external morphology of these 7 new/new record species are described and the synonymies and distribution records of the other 10 theridiid species are reported.
Simultaneous detection and differentiation of Newcastle disease and avian influenza viruses using oligonucleotide microarrays.
Isolation and characterization of microsatellite DNA markers from the Lanyu scops owl (Otus elegans botelensis)
From a genomic library enriched for GATA/CTAT and GAAA/CTTT repeats, 12 polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed for the Lanyu scops owl and all loci conformed to Hardy–Weinberg expectations.
Microsatellite Loci from Lanyu Scops Owl (Otus elegans botelensis) and their Cross-Species Application in Four Species of Strigidae
Six new microsatellite markers containing tetranucleotide repeat motifs (GATA/CTAT) for Lanyu scops owl (Otus elegans botelensis) from an enriched partial library are developed and should be very useful genetic markers in studying the mating system, population genetics, and conservation of other little studied Old World Otus owls.
