Researchers reveal main drivers for the endangerment of the green peafowl- a cultural icon in East and Southeast Asia

  The green peafowl (Pavo muticus) is known as the "King of Birds" and is of great significance to the cultural inheritance of East Asia and Southeast Asia. With historically wide but now scattered distributions (Figure 1), major drivers underlying its endangerment still remain unclear.

Scientists renew taxonomic revision of Altigena lippa and recover the validity of A. laticeps

  Altigena Burton 1934 (Cyprinidae: Labeoninae) is a group of mid-to-large freshwater benthic fish. Kottelat (2017) resurrected this genus from genus Bangana based on the result of the molecular phylogeny of Yang et al. (2012) and redefined the generic diagnoses. The monophyly and validity of Altigena is supported by subsequent study.
  Altigena lippa (Fowler, 1936) was well known as Labeo... more
Researchers Solve Puzzles of Origin and Formation of the Specialized Body Plan in Flatfishes

Scientists Developed Small Molecular Inhibitor of SARS-CoV-2

  The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus continually poses serious threats to global public health. By the end of January 2021, SARS-CoV-2 has infected more than 100 million and resulted in over 2.4 million death around the world. To date, there is still a lack of specific drugs against SARS-CoV-2 so that it is urgent to develop anti-SRAS-CoV-2 drug to control this pandemic.
