Environmental filtering decreases with fish development for the assembly of gut microbiota.
Gut microbiota typically occupy habitats with definable limits/borders that are comparable to oceanic islands. The gut therefore can be regarded as an 'island' for the assembly of microbialExpand

Gut Microbiota Contributes to the Growth of Fast-Growing Transgenic Common Carp (Cyprinus carpio L.)
Gut microbiota has shown tight and coordinated connection with various functions of its host such as metabolism, immunity, energy utilization, and health maintenance. To gain insight into whether gutExpand

Impacts of the Three Gorges Dam on microbial structure and potential function
The Three Gorges Dam has significantly altered ecological and environmental conditions within the reservoir region, but how these changes affect bacterioplankton structure and function is unknown.Expand

Host species as a strong determinant of the intestinal microbiota of fish larvae
We investigated the influence of host species on intestinal microbiota by comparing the gut bacterial community structure of four cohabitating freshwater fish larvae, silver carp, grass carp, bigheadExpand

Factors influencing the grass carp gut microbiome and its effect on metabolism.
Gut microbiota have attracted extensive attention recently because of their important role in host metabolism, immunity and health maintenance. The present study focused on factors affecting the gutExpand

Composition of Gut Microbiota in the Gibel Carp (Carassius auratus gibelio) Varies with Host Development
To understand how a bacteria-free fish gut ecosystem develops microbiota as the fish ages, we performed a 1-year study on the gut microbiota of hatchling gibel carp (Carassius auratus gibelio). OurExpand

Taxonomic Resolutions Based on 18S rRNA Genes: A Case Study of Subclass Copepoda
Biodiversity studies are commonly conducted using 18S rRNA genes. In this study, we compared the inter-species divergence of variable regions (V1–9) within the copepod 18S rRNA gene, and tested theirExpand

Phylogenetic relationships among Trichodinidae [Ciliophora: Peritricha] derived from the characteristic values of denticles
The phylogenetic relationships among trichodinids remain obscure. As an important diagnostic marker, the morphology of the denticles in the adhesive disc as well as the adoral spiral has been widelyExpand

Plankton community composition in the Three Gorges Reservoir Region revealed by PCR-dGGE and its relationships with environmental factors.
To explore the relationships between community composition and the environment in a reservoir ecosystem, plankton communities from the Three Gorges Reservoir Region were studied by PCR-denaturingExpand

Fish gut microecosystem: a model for detecting spatial pattern of microorganisms
The spatial distribution pattern of organisms is a basic issue in understanding the mechanisms of community assembly. Although the spatial distributions of animals and plants have been well studied,Expand
