Keywords: Forest degradation Temperate forest Biosphere reserves Cross-border conservation Remote sensing a b s t r a c t Forest degradation in protected areas has been monitored around the world with remote sensing data, but degradation processes undetectable by widely used satellite sensors have been largely overlooked. Increased human pressures and(More)
China's southeast coastal areas have witnessed rapid growth in the last two decades, owing mostly to their economic and social attractions. In this paper, we chose Jimei, a coastal peri-urban district of Xiamen city on the southeast coast of China, as a study area to explore the district's growth dynamics, to predict future sprawl during the next decade and(More)
Drones of various shapes, sizes, and functionalities have emerged over the past few decades, and their civilian applications are becoming increasingly appealing. Flexible, low-cost, and high-resolution remote sensing systems that use drones as platforms are important for filling data gaps and supplementing the capabilities of crewed/manned aircraft and(More)
S ince the 1990s, China has undergone astonishing economic growth, and its extensive urbanization has become one of the most striking development signatures anywhere in the world. With the world's largest urban population, China's urbanization experience provides meaningful insights on future urban development in other countries. 1 Because China has an(More)
BACKGROUND The significance of ezrin immunoexpression and prognosis for osteosarcoma is still controversial. The aim was to provide a meta-analysis for ezrin immunoexpression and prognostic features of osteosarcoma patients. METHODS A detailed search was made in MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Web of Knowledge for relevant original articles published in English;(More)
Based on the community important values and present-absent data along elevation gradient on the north slope of Changbai Mountains and using moving split-window techniques, the width and location of vegetation ecotone were discussed in this article. The results showed that the methods of Bray-Curtis Percent Dissimilarity (PD) and Squared Euclidean Distance(More)
Anthropogenic activity interacts with urban form and inner metabolic processes, ultimately impacting urban sustainability. China's cities have experienced many environmental issues and metabolic disturbances since the nationwide market-oriented " reform and opening-up " policy was adopted in the 1980s. To analyze urban reform policy impacts and metabolism(More)
Due to the nearly identical phenotypes and chemical constituents, it is often very challenging to accurately differentiate diverse species of a Chinese herbal genus. Although technologies including DNA barcoding have been introduced to help address this problem, they are generally time-consuming and require expensive sequencing. Herein, we present a simple(More)
