New progress in molecular systematics of two genera in Timaliidae
Recent progress from Yang xiaojun’ laboratory indicated that traditional genera Actindorua and Pomatorhinus (Timaliidae, Aves) are both paraphyletic, which indicated more complicated avian evolution in eastern Asian. In combination with morphology, it is recommended splitting both genera into two genera respectively. There is a significant pattern of north-south division inside traditional bar... more
Evolution of Alternative Splicing in Newly Evolved Genes of Drosophila
Researchers at Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (KIZ, CAS) found that alternative splicing tends to diminish in the process of new gene origination.
  Alternative splicing is a process that allows the production of a variety of different proteins from one gene only. And new gene origination is a fundamental process underlying evolution of biological diversity. Yet, th... more
Additive diversity partitioning as Guide to Regional Montane Reserve Design
A regional montane reserve system should cover the entire elevational gradient and multiple slopes, rather than only the montane crest, suggested WU Fei, a PhD candidate at Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
  WU and his supervisors did point counts to sample bird communities in four elevational zones, on eastern and western slopes, during both the breeding and the non... more
Economic Theory Suggests Symbiosis Is Driven by Simple Self-Interest, Not Rewards or Punishment
Analysis discounts idea that hosts evolve to punish misbehaving symbionts
  Applying employment contract theory to symbiosis, a new paper suggests mutually beneficial relationships are maintained by simple self-interest, with partners benefiting from healthy hosts much as employees benefit from robust employers. The new work discounts the theory that host species have evolved to promote symbi... more
The new results about phylogenetic relationships of the Chinese Labeoninae
The Labeoninae is a subfamily of the family Cyprinidae, Order Cypriniformes. Except the typical common characters exhibited by the Cyprinidae, Labeoninae achieves the maximal diversity in lips and other structures around mouth among the Cyprinidae fishes. The phylogeny of the subfamily Labeoninae has remained as a controversial topic in years due to the insufficient samples. The early and recen... more
