Climate change and geological events have long been known to shape biodiversity, implying that these can likewise be viewed from a biological perspective.
Poisonous mushrooms are a significant threat to human health, yet contribute to important drug and biomolecule developments.
The length of time a flower remained open (i.e., from anthesis to flower senescence) is called as floral longevity. Floral longevity has been considered one of the most important reproductive traits as it determines opportunities for pollen dispersal and capture of pollen by stigmas as well as has the potential to influence within-plant pollinator foraging and opportunities for geitonogamous se...
Located in the centre of the Eurasian continent and representing the largest arid zone in the Northern Hemisphere, the arid Asian interior (here mainly referred to as Central and West Asia) is characterized by a continental climate with low annual precipitation and highly variable seasonal temperatures
The Chinese version of International Code of Nomenclature for Algae, Fungi, and Plants (Shenzhen Code) has been published in November 2021 by Science Press, Beijing.
An international partnership between Scotland and China, forged to fight biodiversity loss this week celebrates its 30th anniversary.
Determining the major drivers of species diversification and phenotypic innovation across the Tree of Life is one of the grand challeges in evolutionary biology.
Facilitated by the Germplasm Bank of Wild Species of the Kunming Institute of Botany (KIB) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Prof. YI Tingshuang and Prof. LI Dezhu of KIB led a novel study on gymnosperm diversification...
To meet the goals of the Convention on Biological Diversity, researchers have proposed five strategies for protecting the global ecosystem.
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is one of the most important greenhouse gas causing global warming. At the same time, N2O also participates in many photochemical reactions in the atmosphere, destroying the atmospheric ozone layer. Compared to the Carbon dioxide (CO2) content in the atmosphere, the relative content of N2O is much lower.
