seroepidemiology of hantaan virus infection in order to investigate the infection rate of hantaan virus in taiwan, a total of 6,536 human serum samples were collected from residents, selected by stratified random sampling, from 19 townships covering four different ethnic groups: aborigines, fukien taiwanese, hakka taiwanese, and mainland chinese. serum samples were screened for hantaan virus antibodies by indirect immunofluorescence. the prototype hantaan virus (76/118)-infected vero e6 cells were used as the viral antigen for the antibod ...19968950687
sex-specific effects of parasitism on survival and reproduction of a rodent host in a subtropical montane region.parasites can generate complex life history trade-offs in a host. in this study, we experimentally reduced the infection level of intestinal helminth parasites in the taiwan field mouse (apodemus semotus) to test (1) whether parasite richness and load are biased towards male or female mice (sex-biased parasitism) and (2) whether the effects of parasitism on the host's survival and reproduction are different between the sexes (sex-specific effects of parasitism). our findings indicate that neithe ...201525417000
different patterns of food consumption and locomotor activity among taiwanese native rodents, formosan wood mice (apodemus semotus), and common laboratory mice, c57bl/6 (mus musculus).the comparisons of food consumption and locomotor activity among taiwan native rodents, formosan wood mice (apodemus semotus), and laboratory mice, c57bl/6, were examined in this study. the food consumption exhibited the circadian rhythmicity, e.g. higher in the lights-off period and lower in the lights-on period, in either formosan wood mice (wm) or c57bl/6 mice. we also found that formosan wm ate more food than c57bl/6 mice in the lights-off period and the whole day in males, but not in female ...200818935907
