Scientists measure large protected area conservation effectiveness using vertebrate distributions from leech iDNA

  A research team led by Prof. Douglas YU from Kunming Institute of Zoology, the Chinese Academy of Sciences revealed a new method to measure animal biodiversity on large scales. The paper entitled “Measuring Protected-Area Effectiveness using Vertebrate Distributions from Leech iDNA” (web link: https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-022-28778-8) was published in Nature Communications .

Scientists found new evidence for a single origin of laryngeal echolocation in bats

  A research team led by Prof. SHI Peng from Kunming Institute of Zoology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences reported the new evidence for a single origin of laryngeal echolocation in bats. The finding was published in iScience on 18th March.
  Studies on the origin of complex traits largely rely on fossil evidence. However, in most cases, it is difficult to time the origin of complex tra... more
Scientists found a new twisted-wing parasite species (Strepsiptera, Xenidae) in Gaoligong Mountains, Southwest China

  Researchers from Kunming Institute of Zoology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and China Agricultural University have found a new twisted-wing parasite species (Strepsiptera, Xenidae) in Gaoligong Mountains, Southwest China. The finding was published in ZooKeys on 2nd February.
  The scientists confirmed the twisted-wing insects parasitizing respectively on two wasps (Vespa velutina an... more
RETSAT mutation selected for hypoxia adaptation inhibits tumor growth

  High altitude is one of the most extreme environments worldwide, and mammals living in high altitude evolve adaptation traits including respiratory, cardiovascular, and metabolic systems compared to reciprocal lowlanders.
  The genetic signals after hypoxia positive selection are the major factors contributing to the hypoxia tolerant physiological traits, some of which have been indicate... more
Researchers Uncover a Strategy for Efficient preparation of genus-specific diagnostic antibodies for snakebites

  There are at least 768 species of venomous snakes in the world. As said by former United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan, ‘Snakebite is the most important tropical disease you’ve never heard of’. The number of people bitten by snakes in the world is 1.8-2.7 million every year, causing more than 125,000 deaths. In China, 200,000-400,000 people are bitten by snakes every year, result... more
