Are White-handed Gibbons Extirpated from China?

  Figure. Much of the gibbons' natural habitat has been converted to
  farmland (cited from the paper).
  The Nangunhe Nature Reserve in Southwest Yunnan (PRC) has long been presumed to be the last stronghold of lar (or white-handed) gibbons (Hylobates lar) in China and the likely to be the last place of occurrence of Hylobates lar yunnanensis.

Indigenous hunting sustainability in the Amazonia

  Density maps of spider monkey populations after 50 years over
  different scenarios and parameter combinations (Cited from the
  paper).
  Manu National Park of Peru was recently used as a subject for investigating how population growth and spread, hunting technology and effort, and source-sink dynamics impact the density of black spider monkeys Ateles chamek over time and space in t... more
Anti-thrombosis Repertoire of Blood-feeding Horsefly Salivary Glands
Blood-feeding arthropods rely heavily on the pharmacological properties of their saliva to get a blood meal and suppress immune reactions of hosts. Little information is available on antihemostatic substances in horsefly salivary glands although their saliva has been thought to contain wide range of physiologically active molecules. In traditional Eastern medicine, horseflies are used as anti-t... more
Antioxidant Peptidomics Reveals Novel Skin Antioxidant System
It is generally agreed that reactive oxygen species (ROS) contribute to skin aging, skin disorders, and skin diseases. Skin possesses an extremely efficient antioxidant system. This antioxidant activity is conferred by two systems: antioxidant enzymes and small molecules that can scavenge ROS by donating electrons. No gene-encoded secreted ROS scavengers have been reported. Amphibian skin is a ... more
Relaxation of selective constraint on avian mitochondrial DNA following the degeneration of flight ability
The evolution of flight is the most important feature of birds, and this ability has helped them become one of the most successful groups of vertebrates. However some species have independently lost their ability to fly. The degeneration of flight ability is a long process, and some species remain transitional locomotive models. Most of the energy required for locomotion is supplied by mitochon... more
