Researchers Reveal Regulatory Mechanisms of the Temperature Sensitivity of Soil Organic Ma...
Temperature sensitivity of soil organic matter decomposition, commonly referred to as Q10, is a key parameter in terrestrial carbon cycle. It quantifies the increase in decomposition rate with a 10 oC rise in temperature and could determine the sign and magnitude of terrestrial carbon-climate feedback. The regulatory mechanisms of the temperature sensitivity of soil organic matter deco...
Researchers Make Progresses in the Low-Cd Rice Study
Rice is the major component of diet for over half of the population in China. However, cadmium (Cd), which is a kind of toxic heavy metal, can be easily absorbed and enriched in rice, and then enters the human body through the food chain, thus threatening human health. In recent years, cadmium pollution has become a serious problem, especially in the southern paddy fields of China. Asi...
Expansion of transposable elements explains genetic paradox of biological invasion
Species often experience a genetic bottleneck after speciation or introduction into a new area that diminishes their genetic variation. Though bottlenecks in population size always reduce fitness and evolutionary potential, introduced species often become invasive. This referred to as the genetic paradox of invasion. Now, a research group led by Prof. Ya-Long Guo from the Institute of ...
