The fate of herbicide acetochlor and its toxicity to Eisenia fetida under laboratory conditions.
TLDR
This study showed that acetochlor had no long-term effect on the growth and reproduction of E. fetida and revealed sublethal toxicity to E. Fetida at field dose (5-10 mg kg-1). Expand
Effectiveness of Nature Reserve System for Conserving Tropical Forests: A Statistical Evaluation of Hainan Island, China
TLDR
From 2000 to 2010, the forest area inside Hainan’s nature reserve system showed an increase while adjacent unprotected areas and the wider, unprotected landscape both experienced deforestation, however, the simple inside-outside comparisons may overestimate the protective effect of the reserve system. Expand
Monitoring plant response to phenanthrene using the red edge of canopy hyperspectral reflectance.
TLDR
The red edge slope and area consistently responded to phenanthrene, showing a strong relationship with aboveground biomass, coverage and canopy pigments density, and the potential of remote sensing and the importance of field validation to correctly interpret the causes of the spectral changes are suggested.

Urban-development-induced Changes in the Diversity and Composition of the Soil Bacterial Community in Beijing
TLDR
Paired-end Illumina sequencing of the 16 S rRNA gene at V4 region was performed to study the soil microbial community across Beijing’s built-up area, and showed pH to be a key factor in the shaping of the composition of the soil bacterial community. Expand
Soil TPH Concentration Estimation Using Vegetation Indices in an Oil Polluted Area of Eastern China
TLDR
The modified chlorophyll absorption ratio index (MCARI) best estimated soil TPH concentration among 20 vegetation indices and red edge parameters and the traditional broadband normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), one of the broadband multispectral vegetation indices (BMVIs), produced a prediction similar to that of MCARI. Expand
Effects of elevated CO2 on the nutrient compositions and enzymes activities of Nilaparvata lugens nymphs fed on rice plants
TLDR
Measuring how energy and resources were allocated to enzymes in N. lugens nymphs under elevated CO2 conditions can provide a more meaningful evaluation of their metabolic tolerances to adverse climatic conditions. Expand
Biomarkers responses of the earthworm Eisenia fetida to acetochlor exposure in OECD soil.
TLDR
Sperm count, sperm count, neutral red retention time (NRRT) and DNA damage were measured in earthworm Eisenia fetida exposed to increasing concentrations of acetochlor in OECD soil to examine the potential of a suite of biomarkers as early warning indicators of environmental pollution. Expand
A new species of Odorrana (Anura, Ranidae) from Hunan Province, China
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses, based on mitochondrial 12S r RNA and 16S rRNA gene sequences, strongly support the new species as a monophyletic group nested into the O. schmackeri species complex. Expand
The regeneration capacity of an earthworm, Eisenia fetida, in relation to the site of amputation along the body
TLDR
The survival rates of earthworms were correlated significantly with the number of body segments remaining after amputation, but not with the position of the amputation; the relationships between the survival rates and the numbers of remaining segments could be described by linear regressions. Expand
The effects of the presence of Bt-transgenic oilseed rape in wild mustard populations on the rhizosphere nematode and microbial communities.
TLDR
There was no direct effects of the presence of Bt-transgenic OSR in wild mustard populations on the rhizosphere nematode and microbial communities, whereas its indirect effects via aboveground herbivory might be important to consider for biosafety assessments. Expand
