1. Lin, Ming-Tsung. Study on the muscle characteristics of the Swamp Eel, Monopterus albus, during Aestivation.

Degree: Master, Marine Biology, 2009, NSYSU

The swamp eel, Monopterus albus, is a benthic freshwater species, inhabiting the muddy ponds, canals, and rice fields. They are highly adaptive to stressful environment and, as a consequence M. albus is an aquaculture species. Under adverse environmental conditions, such as drought and high temperature, swamp eels burrow into the mud and enter into a stage of aestivation which is characterized by extremely slow physiological processes and complete quiescence. Reports on human muscle atrophy as a result of prolong lacking of muscle activity indicate that muscle atrophy is associated with reductions of number and sizes of muscle fibers. And this symptom is also called the disuse muscle atrophy. In this study, swamp eels were induced into aestivation by placing in a growth chamber under high temperature and low water contain in the mud substrate. Results show that when the swamp eel had been in aestivated for 100 days, the skeletal muscle atrophied about 48%. However, such âatrophyâ did not influence normal functions of the muscles, and the degree of atrophy much lower than non-aestivation species. The 2-DE results of the M. albusâs muscle during 100 days of aestivation show that appearance or disappearance of new function proteins were not observed. However these were significant difference between three protein groups, including stress proteins, sarcomeric proteins and metabolic proteins. These three groups of proteins play important roles in prevention of atrophy of disused muscles. It is believe that M. albus is more suitable species than bear in the study of disuse muscle atrophy.

2. Huang, Chi-yu. Altitudinal differences of distribution and behavior of Formosan Reevesâ muntjac (Muntiacus reevesi micrurus).

Degree: Master, Biological Sciences, 2018, NSYSU

Spatially distant animal populations scattered in wide geographical ranges may confront with quite different environment conditions. These differences are often reflected in the abundance, distribution and behavior among the local populations. Formosan Reeves' muntjac (Muntiacus reevesi micrurus) is forest-dwelling species widespread from the lowland to high mountains in Taiwan. Although previous studies have addressed on the relationship of its abundance, distribution, and behavior with altitude, the results remain inconclusive. In this study, camera-trapping data from fauna surveys along the area of Gaoping River, including Shoushan (22-323 m), Chuyunshan Nature Reserve (900-2,200 m), and Southern Cross-Island Highway area (1,700-2,700 m) were analyzed and compared. The aim of this study is to determine whether there are altitudinal differences of abundance, distribution, activity pattern and behavior in Formosan Reeves' muntjac. Data collected from a total of 67 camera sites were analyzed in the analysis. The results showed that the abundance of the muntjac was not correlated with altitude. The muntjac showed the highest density at Shoushan (low altitude), while lowest at Chuyunshan Nature Reserve (middle altitude). The muntjac remains active throughout 24 hours and peaked at dusk and dawn. The muntjac at Shoushan was more active between 9:00 - 15:00 than those of the other study areas. Foraging was the most frequently observed behavior at all three areas. The relative frequencies of locomotion, alert, foraging and other behavior were not different among altitudes. The abundance of the predator was neither correlated with the altitude nor the abundance of muntjac. Activity patterns of the muntjac and dog, the only predator of muntjac at Shoushan, were similar although dogs were more diurnal oriented. At other areas, activity patterns of the predators and muntjac showed no differences. Poor food availability, steep topography and higher hunting pressure at Chuyunshan Nature Reserve may explain its lowest muntjac abundance among these three areas. The tendency that the muntjac being more diurnal at Shoushan may be due to its potentially higher disturbance at night, a consequence of being surrounded by the metropolitan area.

3. Liu, Shu-hui. In search of Callionymoidei (Teleostei: Perciformes) relatives and the inferred phylogeny of Glaucosomatidae.

Degree: PhD, Marine Biology, 2010, NSYSU

Percomorpha is the most diverse group of Acanthomorpha, and the interrelationships among the members are unsettled. Perciformes, one order of Percomorpha, is the largest fish order with 160 families placed in 20 suborders. The relationships among the suborders of Perciformes remain conflicting between the hypotheses of phylogenetic relationships based on different characters. Presently, major studies on relationships of higher taxa are from Japanese based on the mitogenome, and the other studies were based on nuclear gene sequences. Mok recently suggest a hypothesis of the Gobioidei, it is the sister group to a clade which includes the Callionymoidei, Dactylopteriformes, and possibly Pegasidae, based on osteological characters. Following this, a phylogenetic hypothesis of the Callionymoidei based on mitochondrial and nuclear genes was conducted, and the Taiwanese and Australian specimens of G. buergeri might be treated as different species. Morphological differentiation in the sagitta in these two groups points to the same conclusion. The Pempheridae is the sister group of the Glaucosomatidae that is demonstrated by molecular evidences. It is the same with the relationship based on the morphological characters, such as otolith and swimbladder, etc. The monophyly of Callionymoidei is not recovered in this study. The Syngnathoidei may be the closest group of Callionymidae, and the Gobiesocoidei is suggested to be closest with Draconettidae. In the application of mitogenomic information, the sequcences selected by Japanese have not been decided to be unsaturated, so I made statistical inference of the variation for mitochondrial sequences and selected nuclear genes. I have found out the variation-saturated genes and discuss the application of these sequences to phylogenetic studies derived from these datasets in this study.
