In order to investigate the current and the future potential effects of climate change on Hydnora species, researchers from the Wuhan Botanical Garden simulated the potential distribution and range changes for Hydnora abyssinica and Hydnora africana for the current baseline period and the future (2050 and 2070) under two representative concentration pathway scenarios.
To better understand the evolutionary features and mechanisms of plant mitochondrial genomes, researchers from the Kunming Institute of Botany have assembled 13 complete mitochondrial genomes from Fragaria wild species and studied the sequence variation characteristics (substitution rate, indels, inversions) of their coding and non-coding regions.
A researcher at the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Institute of Deep-sea Science and Engineering, Li leads one of the nation's deep-sea marine mammal research teams. He said the team comprises about 20 people who are "physically, mentally and spiritually tested" by the harsh conditions for oceanic expeditions in the South China Sea.
Using species diversity and phylogenetic metrics such as phylogenetic diversity (PD), standardized effect size of PD, net relatedness index, and evolutionary distinctiveness and global endangerment, researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) identified spatial patterns for 158 threatened tree species in Xishuangbanna.
Researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) have collected and maintained a collection of about 100 plants of Annonaceae, a large pantropical flowering plant family. Recently, observations of flower morphology in the Annonaceae collection at XTBG have led to the identification of two unknown species belonging to the genus Polyalthiopsis.
Researchers from the Wuhan Botanical Garden utilized a comprehensive dataset of angiosperms of Mt. Namjagbarwa and integrated phylogenetic diversity, mean family age and phylogenetic relatedness representing three aspects of phylogenetic structure for all elevation belts to study the elevational patterns of the phylogenetic structure of Mt. Namjagbarwa and explore potential causes for the patterns.
