Background: Global climate change could have potential impact on enterovirus (EV)-induced infectious diseases. However, the environmental factors promoting acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis (AHC) circulation remain inconclusive. This study aimed to quantify the relationship between the environment and AHC. Methods: We retrieved the monthly counts...

Aim Understanding the patterns and correlates of the range expansion of established alien species is crucial for predicting invasion impacts and developing effective control strategies. With accelerating globalization, it is key to identify the interactions of different global change processes, such as how land‐use change may influence range expans...

1. In some situations, environmental DNA (eDNA) metabarcoding is a more accurate tool for measuring species richness of a taxon than conventional methods. Whether this tool can reliably estimate the abundance of a taxon remains unresolved. 2. We examined the reliability of metabarcoding for measuring anuran diversity compared to a commonly used tra...

Identifying where high genetic diversity is located across our planet and what factors affect the geographical patterns of genetic variation not only provides important insights into distributions of biodiversity but is also crucial for human health, animal and plant breeding and biodiversity conservation. Recent studies show that genetic diversity...

Scarlet fever has resurged in China starting in 2011, and the environment is one of the potential reasons. Nationwide data on 655,039 scarlet fever cases and six air pollutants were retrieved. Exposure risks were evaluated by multivariate distributed lag nonlinear models and a meta-regression model. We show that the average incidence in 2011–2018 w...

Reports of amphibian invasions are increasing, although it seems likely that there are more extant populations of alien species than we are currently aware of, and we are far from understanding their full environmental and economic impact. Here we provide data on another established population of African clawed frogs, Xenopus laevis (Daudin, 1802);...

Islands are often considered to be more susceptible to biological invasions and to suffer greater impacts from invaders than mainland areas, and this difference is generally attributed to differences in species introductions, ecological factors or human activities between islands and mainland areas. Genetic variation, as a good estimate of evolutio...

The migration of wild birds plays an important role in the transmission and spread of H5 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) virus, posing a severe risk to animal and human health. Substantial evidence suggests that altered gut microbial community is implicated in the infection of respiratory influenza virus. However, the influence of H5N1 inf...
Article
Full-text available
With accelerating species introductions in an era of globalization, co-occurring alien species have become increasingly common. Understanding the combined ecological impacts of multiple invaders is not only crucial for wildlife managers attempting to ameliorate biodiversity loss but also provides key insights into invasion success and species coexi...
Article
Full-text available
The predatory behavior of invasive species can affect their ecological impact, and offer opportunities for targeted control. In Australia, tadpoles of invasive cane toads (Rhinella marina) do not consume eggs of native anurans, but are strongly attracted to (and consume) newly-laid eggs of conspecifics; chemical cues from such eggs (or adult secret...
Article
The identification of the factors responsible for genetic variation and differentiation at adaptive loci can provide important insights into the evolutionary process, and is crucial for the effective management of threatened species. We studied the impact of environmental viral richness and abundance on functional diversity and differentiation of t...

A disease caused by the fungi Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) and Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal) is responsible for recent worldwide declines and extinctions of amphibian populations. The Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) is a global biodiversity hotspot, yet little is known about the prevalence of Bd and Bsal in this region. In this stud...

Identifying the origins of alien species has important implications for effectively controlling the spread of alien species. The black-spotted frog Pelophylax nigromaculatus, originally from East Asia, has become an alien species on the Tibetan Plateau (TP). In this study, we collected 300 individuals of P. nigromaculatus from 13 native regions and...

The recent increase in infectious disease outbreaks has been directly linked to the global loss of biodiversity and the decline of some endangered species populations. Between December 2014 and March 2015, five captive giant pandas died due to canine distemper virus (CDV) infection in China. CDV has taken a heavy toll on tigers and lions in recent...

Australia has no native toad species, and as a consequence, many Australian pre - dators lack resistance to the toxins of the invasive cane toad Rhinella marina, and die if they ingest one of these toads. Resistance is conferred by a small and consistent genetic change, so genetic data can provide a rapid, non-invasive way to clarify the vulnerabil...

Identifying the origin of a biological invasion is critical for controlling the invaders. To explore the genetic diversity and identify the source region of introductions of Pelophylax nigromaculatus to the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, we sequenced 695 bp of the mitochondrial Cyt b gene in 140 individuals of P. nigromaculatus and identified 4...

Chytridiomycosis caused by Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) has been recognized as a major driver of amphibian declines worldwide. Central and northern Asia remain as the greatest gap in the knowledge of the global distribution of Bd. In China, Bd has recently been recorded from south and central regions, but areas in the north remain poorly sur...
Article
Full-text available
For the last decade, chytridiomycosis has been considered to be caused by a single species of fungus, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), until a second chytrid species, Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bs), was isolated from an infected Salamandra salamandra in the Netherlands. To date, Bs has only been found in Europe. To assess whether Bs is...

Chytridiomycosis, caused by the chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), has been implicated in amphibian population declines worldwide. However, no amphibian declines or extinctions associated with Bd have been reported in Asia. To investigate the history of this pathogen in China, we examined 1,007 museum-preserved amphibian specimens...

Understanding the factors that contribute to loss of genetic diversity in fragmented populations is crucial for conservation measurements. Land-bridge archipelagoes offer ideal model systems for identifying the long-term effects of these factors on genetic variations in wild populations. In this study, we used 9 microsatellite markers to quantify g...

Although native enemies in an exotic species' new range are considered to affect its ability to invade, few studies have evaluated predation pressures from native enemies on exotic species in their new range. The exotic prey naiveté hypothesis (EPNH) states that exotic species may be at a disadvantage because of its naïveté towards native enemies a...

Background: Anthropogenically-induced climate change can alter the current climatic habitat of non-native species and can have complex effects on potentially invasive species. Predictions of the potential distributions of invasive species under climate change will provide critical information for future conservation and management strategies. Aqua...

1. Shifts in the body size of insular vertebrates have been an interesting theme in ecological and evolutionary studies. Four primary factors, including predation pressures, resource availability, inter-species competition and immigrant selection, have been proposed to explain the trend in insular body size. Life-history theory predicts that body s...

In order to understand the habitat selection and spatial distribution of red swamp crayfish (Procambarus clarkia) and its influence on native amphibian diversity, an investigation was made in 86 reservoirs and ponds on eight islands (Daishan, Liuheng, Xiushan, Fodu, Taohua, Xiazhi, Cezi, and Putuo Mountain) of Zhoushan Archipelago in May - August 2...
