Abstract Objective Although the ovaries produce the majority of estrogens in women before menopause, estrogen is also synthesized in peripheral tissues such as adipose tissue (AT). The typical female AT distribution, concentrated in subcutaneous and femoro-gluteal regions, is estrogen-mediated, but the significance of estrogen synthesis in AT of premenopausal women is poorly understood. Design and Methods Serum and subcutaneous and visceral AT homogenates from 28 premenopausal women undergoing n...

China started a long‐term effort to mitigate desertification and ensure the sustainability of its environment by implementing multiple large‐scale national ecological restoration projects since 1978, but their success has been highly debated for a long time. Here, we estimated the change of vegetation fraction cover (VFC) in the Three‐North Shelterbelt Programme (TNSP) region over the past three decades on the basis of the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index dataset from the Global Inventory ...

Summary Desertification in Northern China degrades air quality in China's eastern cities by causing frequent dust storms. To stop desert expansion, China's government initiated the Three-North Shelterbelt Program, a large-scale reforestation project. Many issues with the project have been raised, from the choice of ill-adapted species to planting methods. Recently, the government implemented “natural reforestation”—closing former pastures to let vegetation regrow naturally. Unfortunately, it has...

Remotely sensed solar-induced fluorescence (SIF) has emerged as a novel approach for terrestrial vegetation monitoring. The in situ continuous optical remote sensing tool in conjunction with concurrent eddy covariance (EC) flux measurements provides a new opportunity to advance terrestrial ecosystem science. Here we introduce a network of ground-based SIF observations at flux tower sites across the mainland China referred as ChinaSpec. Until now, it consists of 15 tower sites including 5 croplan...

Plant traits-the morphological, anatomical, physiological, biochemical and phenological characteristics of plants-determine how plants respond to environmental factors, affect other trophic levels, and influence ecosystem properties and their benefits and detriments to people. Plant trait data thus represent the basis for a vast area of research spanning from evolutionary biology, community and functional ecology, to biodiversity conservation, ecosystem and landscape management, restoration, bio...

Abstract The change of fraction vegetation cover (FVC) is the key ecological index for vegetation dynamics of dryland ecosystem. However, it is difficult to directly map woody vegetation and herbaceous vegetation in the dryland from the satellite images due to the mixture of their distribution at small scale. Emerging UAV remote sensing provides a good opportunity to capture and quantify the distribution of the sparse vegetation in the drylands ecosystem. In this study, we proposed a new method ...

Seed longevity is one of the most essential characteristics of seed quality. Two chromosome segment substitution lines, I178 and X178, which show significant differences in seed longevity, were subjected to transcriptome sequencing before and after five days of accelerated aging (AA) treatments. Compared to the non-aging treatment, 286 and 220 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified after 5 days of aging treatment in I178 and X178, respectively. Of these DEGs, 98 were detected in b...

Metabolic profiling of biofluids by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy serves as an important tool in disease characterization, and its accuracy largely depends on the quality of samples. We aimed to explore possible effects of repeated freeze–thaw cycles (FTCs) on concentrations of lipoprotein parameters in serum and metabolite concentrations in serum and urine samples. After one to five FTCs, serum and urine samples (n= 20) were analyzed by NMR spectroscopy, and 112 lipoprotein para...
