animal tracking and recording devices Biologging large amounts of data on the behavior of individual movements in a natural environment. In these data, the ecology movement often see the explained variation around the mean as the “voice” when studying the pattern on a population level.

New directions in pollinator research: diversity, conflict and response to global change

The interaction between pollinators and their plant hosts is central to maintaining global biodiversity and ensure the safety of our food. In this special issue, we compile the reviews that summarize the existing knowledge and point out areas outstanding research key to understanding and pollinator protection, the interaction of the host plant and pollinator-pollination ecosystem services they provide. The great diversity of pollinator-plant interactions that […]

Molecular Species Delimitation of the Genus Reishia (Mollusca: Gastropoda) along the Coasts of China and Korea

Species of the genus gastropod predator Reishia Kuroda and Habe, 1971 (Muricidae) inhabits the intertidal rocky shore in East Asia. Shell varies greatly because of their external morphology, taxonomy of this genus to species-level is still in need of re-evaluation. Using DNA-based methods of delimitation, we aim to ensure Reishia number of species along the coast of China and Asia adjacent areas. Also, we look […]
