In recent years, observations of distinct organisms have linked the quality of the environment experienced by a given individual and the sex it will develop. In most described cases, facing relatively harsh conditions resulted in masculinization, while thriving in favorable conditions promoted the development of an ovary. This was shown indistinctively in some species presenting a genetic sex determination (GSD), which were able to sex-reverse, and in species with an environmental sex determination (ESD) system.

It was acknowledged long ago that microorganisms have played critical roles in animal evolution. Tibetan wild asses (TWA, ) are the only wild perissodactyls on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (QTP) and the first national protected animals; however, knowledge about the relationships between their gut microbiota and the host's adaptability remains poorly understood. Herein, 16S rRNA and meta-genomic sequencing approaches were employed to investigate the gut microbiota-host associations in TWA and were compared against those of the co-resident livestock of yak () and Tibetan sheep ().

The wood industry is facing many challenges. The high variability of raw material and the complexity of manufacturing processes results in a wide range of visible structure defects, which have to be controlled by trained specialists. These manual processes are not only tedious and biased, but also less effective. Read More

Despite some advances in recent years, the harsh reality remains that the field of retina, albeit far from being the worst offender, falls well short in the quest for gender equality. EURETINA is fully committed to playing its part at an institutional level in making the field of retina a truly egalitarian, diverse and positive environment of which we can all be truly proud. To shed light on the extent of gender inequalities in the subspecialty and formulate possible measures to improve the situation, EURETINA commissioned an online survey to understand the perceptions and experiences of women working in the field of retina.

The objective of the current study is to evaluate both the positive and negative effects of manganese-doped graphene quantum dots (GQD-Mn) on Capsicum annuum L. grown under salt stress. GQD-Mn was synthesized, characterized, and foliar-applied (250 mg/L, 120 mg/L, 60 mg/L) to C. Read More
