1,520 reference genomes from cultivated human gut bacteria enable functional microbiome analyses
Reference genomes are essential for metagenomic analyses and functional characterization of the human gut microbiota. We present the Culturable Genome Reference (CGR), a collection of 1,520Expand
Leaf macrofossils of Ilex protocornuta sp. nov. (Aquifoliaceae) from the Late Miocene of East China: implications for palaeoecology.
Although both fossil pollen and molecular data support a long evolutionary history for the Aquifoliaceae, reliable macrofossils have rarely been described. Here, a new species, Ilex protocornutaExpand
A novel affordable reagent for room temperature storage and transport of fecal samples for metagenomic analyses
BackgroundThe number of large-scale studies on the gut microbiota in human cohorts is rapidly increasing. However, the few and expensive options for storage of fecal samples at room temperature haveExpand
Comparison of lignocellulose composition in four major species of Miscanthus.
Miscanthus is a perennial grass rich in lignocellulose that has attracted interest as a non-food crop for renewable bioenergy with major environmental and economic benefits for China. TheExpand
Inheritance of Diapause in Crosses between the Northernmost and the Southernmost Strains of the Asian Corn Borer Ostrinia furnacalis
The northernmost Harbin strain (N strain) of the Asian corn borer, Ostrinia furnacalis enters facultative diapause as fully grown larvae in response to short daylengths; whereas the southernmostExpand
Anatomical variations of living and fossil Liquidambar leaves: A proxy for paleoenvironmental reconstruction
Based on living L. formosana, we have established that such epidermal cell properties as epidermal cell circumference (Circum.), undulation index (UI), epidermal cell area (EA) on both upper andExpand
Geographical variation and inheritance of the photoperiodic response controlling larval diapause in two distinct voltine ecotypes of the Asian cornborer Ostrinia furnacalis
The Asian corn borer Ostrinia furnacalis Guenée (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) enters facultative diapause as fully‐grown larvae in response to short day lengths during autumn. As a result of geographicalExpand
Biotypic Variation among Soybean Aphid Isolates from Four Provinces in China
The soybean aphid (Aphis glycines Matsumura (Hemiptera: Aphididae)) is an important pest insect of soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) in China and North America. Identification of soybean aphidExpand
Concentration levels and composition characteristics of VOCs at the background locations in China
Concentrations of volatile organic compounds(VOCs) were measured from 10 background locations in rural area in China for canister samples collected from April 2010 to Aug 2011.Results showed that theExpand
Preference of Batocera horsfieldifor adults to feeding plants
The preference of Batocera horsfieldi Hope adults to various feeding plants was investigated in both field and laboratory. The highest selection rate on Viburnum awabuki and Betula luminifera by B.Expand
