Background Crop-tree thinning (CTT) is a forest management practice aiming at enhancing the growth of target trees in plantations by harvesting neighboring trees. Along with the positive effect on tree growth, thinning represents a disturbance, which likely affects belowground organisms and may feed back to stand productivity. However, the impact o...

Aim: Both ecological and evolutionary processes shape biological communities along elevational gradients. Compared to above-ground taxa, elevational patterns and processes of below-ground animals are little studied. Here, we investigated how environmental gradients across elevation may affect species divergence in the past and act as filters of con...

Altitudinal changes in the diversity of plants and animals have been well documented; however, soil animals received little attention in this context and it is unclear whether their diversity follows general altitudinal distribution patterns. Changbai Mountain is one of few well-conserved mountain regions comprising natural ecosystems on the Eurasi...

Soil life supports the functioning and biodiversity of terrestrial ecosystems. Springtails (Collembola) are among the most abundant soil animals regulating soil fertility and flow of energy through above- and belowground food webs. However, the global distribution of springtail diversity and density, and how these relate to energy fluxes remains un...

In response to human-induced changes in the environment, it is crucial to assess the underlying factors of the impacts of forest conversion on ecosystem function. However, research is limited on bacteria and fungi diversity, functional properties, and community assembly mechanisms in response to forest-to-cropland conversion. We categorized soil ba...

Collembola, a common pest of mushrooms, could reduce the yield and quantity of edible mushroom and causes great economic losses in their production. During the investigation of Collembola in the main edible mushroom production areas in China, 27 species belonging to five families and 16 genera, hosted by more than ten species of edible mushrooms ha...

Collembola are a basal group of Hexapoda renowned for both unique morphological characters and significant ecological roles. However, a robust and plausible phylogenetic relationship between its deeply divergent lineages has yet to be achieved. We carried out a mitophylogenomic study based on a so far the most comprehensive mitochondrial genome dat...

Two new species, Semicerura bryophila sp. nov. and S. draconis sp. nov., are described from the Far East of Russia and north-eastern part of China. S. goryshini Martynova, 1969 is redescribed based on the type material and fresh materials from China and South Korea. The holotype of S. bishopi Maynard, 1951 (eastern areas of the U.S.A.) was studied...

The complete mitochondrial genome of Orthonychiurus folsomi (Schäffer 1900) was sequenced, assembled, and annotated. The mitochondrial genome of O. folsomi has a length of 15,283bp and comprises 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, and two rRNA genes. Two tRNA genes trnS(uga) and trnQ have changed position. A phylogenetic tree of Onychiuridae sp...

The complete mitogenome of Metisotoma macnamarai (Folsom 1918 Folsom JW. 1918. A new isotoma of the snow fauna. Can Entomol. 50(9):291–292.[Crossref] , [Google Scholar]) (Collembola, Isotomidae), a member of obligatory predaceous genus Metisotoma Maynard, 1951 Maynard EA. 1951. A monograph of Collembola or springtail insects of New York state. Itha...
Article

Three new species of the genus Oligaphorura are described from southwestern China (O. wanglangensis sp. nov.) and Russian Far East (O. ussurica sp. nov. and O. kedroviensis sp. nov.). The first species is most similar to O. inya (Weiner & Kaprus’, 2014) known from the Altai Mountains, and can be distinguished from the latter by larger body size and...
Article
Full-text available
Two new species, T. dorsoduplex sp. nov. (Zhejiang province) and T. wui sp. nov. (Jilin Province) are described. The former species belongs to 'sylvatica' group and differs from all species of the genus by presence of only one pair of macrochaetae on Th. II–Abd. II and specific position of lateral s-chaetae on Abd. IV. The latter species belongs to...
Article
Two new species Oligaphorura shifangensis sp. nov. and Onychiurus qingchuanensis sp. nov. living on mushrooms (morels) were reported from southwest China. Oligaphorura shifangensis sp. nov. is similar to known species O. schoetti (Lie-Pettersen, 1896), O. groenlandicus (Tullberg, 1876) and O. sibirica (Weiner & Kaprus’, 2014) as having the same pso...

Four species of the genus Ceratophysella living on mushrooms are reported from China, including a new species, Ceratophysellaskarzynskii Weiner & Sun, sp. n. , which is described from alpine mushrooms. The new species belongs to the Ceratophysella group of species with a dorsal chaetotaxy of type B and differs from the other species in a combinatio...

A new species, Uralaphorura liangshuiensis sp. n., has been reported from Xiao Hinggan Mountains (northeast China). The new species is unique in having the pso formulae as 32/133/33332 dorsally and 0/000/0001(0) ventrally, and the ventral psx formula as 3/000/221000. A key to all known species of the genus is given.
