    Abstract ( 2976 )   Save
    Hong Kong Observation Operational Regional Spectral Model (ORSM) forecasting physical values in June and July 2002 were used to explore the large-scale atmosphere circulation situations and physical conditions causing continuously severe rainfall in the south of China by analyzing the features of average geopotential height field, temperature field, humidity field, meridional and zonal wind velocity field when heavy rainfall took place. The study of the thermodynamic and dynamical field near the heavy rainfall belt indicates that in temperature field, at the low and middle level of atmosphere, the heavy rainfall belt lies in the comparatively colder zone south of the high temperature zone with lower gradient, while the gradient is higher in the north of the heavy rainfall belt. On the other hand, in humidity field, the heavy rainfall belt is located in the high humidity zone, while at the low level of atmosphere, it is in the south of relative humidity gradient zone. Furthermore, in wind velocity field, at the low level of atmosphere, the heavy rainfall belt existed in the convergence zone of the east and west winds, south and north winds.

    Abstract ( 3664 )   Save
    Using the data of years, including the latest in situ data observed in Meimaosha and adjacent water areas in the southern passage of the Yangtze Estuary in Sep., Dec. 2003 and Jan. 2004, characteristics of hydrology and sediment were studied by the multi-methods of hydrology, sediment transportation and statistics. The results show that tidal currents show a strong ebb dominance as velocity of the ebb current is larger than the flood current, time of the ebb current longer than the flood current. In general, the average suspended sediment concentration is 1.40 kg/m3 during the period of the spring tide and 0.60 kg/m3 during the period of the neap tide respectively. The observed data also show that suspended sediment concentration during the flood season is higher than that of during the dry season. Suspended sediment concentration of the flood tide is higher than the ebb tide in the spring tide during the flood season, which is contrary in the neap tide. During the dry season either in the spring tide or in the neap tide, suspended sediment concentration of the ebb tide is higher than the flood tide. The change of the suspended sediment concentration gradient is evident. The variety of the current velocity and suspended sediment concentration after the ecotypic reservoir project have been constructed with the current continuity equation and a linear regression formula of sediment carrying capacity. The result show that it will affect the Nanhui tidal flat in a certain extent.

    Abstract ( 3074 )   Save
    The differentiation of the ciliature and the base-associated fibers during asexual division of the fresh water ciliate, Onychodromus quadricornutus (Foissner et al. 1987) were observed by using protargol staining technique. During asexual division of O. quadriconutus, AZM and PM of the proster is formed at the site where the old oral structures is located and there is no detectable close relations between the new and old structures during the morphogenesis of left and right marginal cirri, the phenomena different from what found in some known oxytrichids. The cirri base-associated fibers of O. quadriconutus include anterior and posterior longitudinal fibers, transverse fibers and radiating fibers. The appearance of these fibers are similar to that observed in some known ciliates, except for that of the transverse fibers of left marginal cirri which differs from the known ciliates in location. During morphogenesis, the old ciliatures together with their base-associated fibers begin to degenerate and disappear in the primordial zone of new anterior and posterior FTV cirri. The base-associated transverse fibers of the old left and right marginal cirri are observed to be the first to disintegrate and degenerate. The disintegration of the base-associated transverse fibers in these parts of old structures shows a close relation with the differentiation of the primordial zone, suggesting an important role of this disintegration in supplying differentiation and development of the primordium with some substances. Other old ciliatures and the base-associated fibers can remain for a relative longer time in the cortex and finally begin to degenerate and disintegrate when their function declines gradually.

    Abstract ( 2908 )   Save
    To further investigate the effect of symbiotic Chlorella on physiological process and metabolism of the host P. bursaria, NaCl or Pb(NO3)2 tolerance and 12 types of isozyme of Chlorella-containing P. bursaria(CCP) and recovered Chlorella-containing P. bursaria(RCCP) and Chlorella-free P. bursaria(CFP) were analyzed. The results showed that NaCl tolerance of CCP was similar to that of RCCP, different from that of CFP, and that Pb(NO3)2 tolerance and activity of isozymes of CFP were similar to those of RCCP. RCCP showed the transitional characteristics between CCP and CFP. Diverse composition and activity of isozymes of among the three samples indicated existence or symbiotic time of Chlorella could change the isozyme system of the host. Fewer composition and lower activity of isozyme in CCP probably implied that due to the symbiosis of Chlorella, isozyme system of the host degenerated in “P. bursaria - Chlorella” system.

    Abstract ( 3171 )   Save

    Amino acids composition and activities of four digestive enzymes including pepsin, tryptase, amylase, cellulase were determined in the eggs of freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium nipponense. These eggs were sampled from different embryonic development stages. The results indicated that digestive enzymes activities and amino acids correlated closely with the stages of embryonic development. Activities of pepsin, tryptase and amylase were relatively high during the whole embryonic development stages. Activities of pepsin, tryptase and amylase were high in early and late developmental stages, but relatively low during middle stages. Cellulose activity was low and showed no obvious change during different embryonic development stages. During protozoea stage, activities of pepsin, tryptase and amylase increased obviously. The content of dissolvable protein and amino acid had a decreased trend. It had relevance to the activities of related enzymes. However, content of the dissolvable protein and amino acid during gastrula stage were higher than that of during blastula stage. Among all the amino acids determined, content of Glu was the highest, the highest essential amino acid (EAA) content was Leu. There was little difference between the ratios of content of single EAA to total EAA during different stages of embryonic development of M. nipponense.

    Abstract ( 2835 )   Save

    The purpose of this paper was to compare two methods of acquiring free sperms from spermatophores of Chinese mitten-handed crab (Eriocheir sinensis). Under the condition of pH 7.4 and different reaction temperatures (27 ℃,32 ℃,37 ℃,42 ℃and 47 ℃, respectively), trypsinase concentrations (0.05 %, 0.10 %, 0.15 %, 0.20 % and 0.25 %, respectively) and reaction times(5 min,10 min,15 min,20 min and 25 min, respectively), the best reaction condition of trypsinase digestion method (TDM) was studied by orthogonal tests and the sperm amounts which got from each gram of spermatophores was used as a criterion. According to the results of orthogonal tests, we found that enzymatic reaction time was the primary factor, and the reaction temperature and the trypsinase concentration also functioned. The maximum effect of trypsinase digesting works at temperature 37 ℃, trypsinase concentration 0.20 % and time 5 min. By using TDM the amounts of free sperms acquired from each gram of spermatophore were 7.41×108 which was significantly higher than that using HM which was only 3.33×108 and the sperm mortality rate was 4.75 % by using TDM which was significantly lower than that using HM which was 27.00 %. Furthermore, the acrosome reaction ability was detected by artificially-induced methodology and the reaction rates were 62.3 % (TDM) and 64.5 % (HM), and there was no significant difference between them. These results suggest that TDM is more effective than HM in acquiring free sperms.

    Abstract ( 2699 )   Save

    The effects of Puararia flavonoids(PF) on bovine vascular endothelial cells(VEC) in vitro injured by advanced glycation end products(AGEs) were investigated. When VEC was incubated with AGEs(4 g/L) for 48 hours, the growth of VEC was enhanced, the contents of lactate dehydrogenase(LDH) and malondialdehyde(MDA) and lipofuscin(LPF) were markedly increased(P<0.01), the contents of nitric oxide(NO-2/ NO-3) and glutatuhione(GSH) were reduced. Treatment with PF caused a reduction in LDH and MDA and LPF, the contents of GSH and NO-2/ NO-3 were increased. The results suggest AGEs has direct effects on VEC, perhaps oxidative stress participates in this process. PF can protect cultured VEC from being injured by AGEs, thereby exert favorable effect against the occurrence and development of chronic vascular complications in diabetic mellitus.

    The ash contents and caloric values of different aboveground organs for three dominant tree species and four dominant shrub species in the east subtropical evergreen broad-leaved forest in Tiantong National Forest Park(TNFP), Zhejiang Province were studied in the paper. The results showed that the gross caloric values (GCV)and the ash-free caloric values(AFCV) of various aboveground organs are different among dominant species, the GCV and AFCV of three dominant tree species can be ranked in a decreasing order as Schima superba> Castanopsis carlesii > C. fargesii, and their GCV and AFCV during mature trees are the biggest among the different developmental phases. Meanwhile the GCV and AFCV of the three tree species during the saplings and seedlings are higher than those of shrub species too. GCV and AFCV of the same organ in different aboveground layers decreased from tree species to shrub species, therefore it suggested that the caloric values are closely related to the light gradient within the community. For the same species, the caloric values altered greatly among different organs, the GCV and AFCV of leaves are higher than those of branch and bark. The paper also showed that the gross caloric values are affected obviously by the ash contents.

    Smooth cordgrass(Spartina alterniflora)is one of the most notorious invader plants and was listed in the alien invader species of China in 2003. The area of smooth cordgrass in Shanghai was about 3592 hm2. However, few information was available about its vegetative dispersal ability in the nature. In the present study, we surveyed the distribution in Shanghai and estimated the vegetative dispersal ability in Eastern End of Chongming Island, Shanghai. Strong vegetative growth was observed in individuals and patches of smooth cordgrass. After 9 months'growth, smooth cordgrass individuals could develope 86 to 222 ramets per genet. The largest dispersal distance was 226 cm for individual smooth cordgrass. Mean dispersal distance of smooth cordgrass patches was 107 cm and the largest was 263 cm. At last, some strategies based on the observations had been proposed to control the rapid spreading of this species.
