Potential effects of climate change on the Chinese Bulbul (Pycnontus sinensis) in China
The Chinese Bulbul (Pycnontus sinensis) has an extensive distribution throughout southern China. Investigators have reported that the species has expanded its distribution range northward since 1995.Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of the white-browed laughingthrush Garrulax sannio (Passeriformes: Leiothrichidae)
Abstract The complete mitochondrial genome of the white-browed laughingthrush Garrulax sannio was assembled using next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology. The double-stranded circular genome isExpand
The complete mitochondrial genome sequences of two Emberiza (Aves, Passeriformes)
Abstract We sequenced the complete mitochondrial genome of Emberiza leucocephala (Pine Bunting; 16,754 bp in length) and E. elegans (Yellow-throated Bunting; 16,780 bp in length). Gene order andExpand
The complete mitochondrial genome of the green-backed tit Parus monticolus (Passeriformes: Paridae)
Abstract The complete mitochondrial genome of the green-backed tit Parus monticolus was assembled from Illumina sequencing reads. The genome is 16 771 bp long, and harbors 22 transfer RNAs (tRNAs),Expand
