PREMISE OF THE STUDY The possible persistence of wild Ginkgo biloba populations in China has long been debated but never scientifically confirmed. We test our hypothesis that the extant Ginkgo populations in the Dalou Mountains (SW China) represent fragments of the original natural Ginkgo range and offer a range of pertinent perspectives on the living(More)
The subtropical evergreen broad-leaved forests of Yunnan and Taiwan were compared along environmental and successional gradients with the aim of identifying important taxon and species diversity as well as the drivers of mountain biodiversity patterns. A detrended correspondence analysis of an exhaustive set of data collected from 105 and 223 plots for(More)
With medicinal plant Erigeron breviscapus as test material, its biomass and the contents and yields of scutellarin and caffeate were monitored under doubled (800 +/- 100) micromol x mol(-1) and natural (400 +/- 25) micromol x mol(-1) CO2 concentration. Comparing with those under natural CO2 concentration, the biomass of E. breviscapus under doubled CO2(More)
We performed an updated meta-analysis to assess the role of the ε2/ε3/ε4 alleles of Apolipoprotein E gene (APOE) in frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). The relevant articles were retrieved from PubMed, CENTRAL, EMBASE and Web of Science databases, and 51 eligible case-control studies with 5123 cases and 20566 controls were selected after screening(More)
