Geographic distance and pH drive bacterial distribution in alkaline lake sediments across Tibetan Plateau
It is shown that pH is the best predictor of bacterial community structure in alkaline sediments, and that both geographic distance and chemical factors govern bacterial biogeography in lake sediments.
Molecular phylogeny of Salix L. (Salicaceae) inferred from three chloroplast datasets and its systematic implications
Salix is a taxonomically difficult genus and its generic limits and infrageneric division are still highly controversial. We employed sequences of the chloroplast rbcL gene, trnD-T spacer and…

Earlier-Season Vegetation Has Greater Temperature Sensitivity of Spring Phenology in Northern Hemisphere
The results suggest that the spring phenology of vegetation may have high temperature sensitivity in a warmer area, and it is important to consider temperature-sensitivity in assessing broad-scale phenological responses to climatic warming.

Climate change effects fruiting of the prize matsutake mushroom in China
Fruiting phenology and productivity were compared against the driving meteorological variables using Projection to Latent Structure regression and contribute to a general model of fungal ecology, which can be used to predict the responses of fungi to global climate change.
