Predator and prey biodiversity relationship and its consequences on marine ecosystem functioning—Interplay between nanoflagellates and bacterioplankton Jinny Yang and Chih-hao Hsieh Institute of Oceanography, National Taiwan University Understanding the biodiversity effects across trophic levels via predator-prey interactions is an important issue in ecology. However, very few studies on this topic have been conducted for marine microorganisms. In the marine ecosystem, the predator-prey interactions between nanoflagellates and bacteria profoundly influence biogeochemical cycling and trophic transfer efficiency through the microbial loop. The research team therefore explored how microbial biodiversities of mutiple trophic…

Top notch studies by NTU Institute of Oceanography research team published in renowned Journal “Nature”

Scientist of National Taiwan University joining with an international team develops a new method to examine the link between the time-varying interaction network and community stability in natural systems Professor Chih-hao Hsieh from the Institute of Oceanography and Ph.D. student Chun-Wei Chang from Academia Sinica, together with an international research team, develop a novel analytical method to construct the time-varying interaction networks and examine the causal link between dynamical interaction network and community stability. This study, published in Nature (02/15/2018), provides empirical evidence supporting long-lasting ecological theory, using data from…

Prof. Ming-Huei Chang’s Kuroshio Current research selected for front cover of “Deep-Sea Research” journal

Prof. Ming-Huei Chang's Kuroshio Current research selected for front cover of "Deep-Sea Research" journal Prof. Ming-Huei Chang (in the photo below) of the Institute of Oceanography reveals the physical processes underlying the Kuroshio meandering and transport variability east of Taiwan using an unprecedented 2-year field observational dataset. The findings of Prof. Chang’s research are crucial to the application of ocean current energy, the management of fishery resource, and the study of global change as well as the evolution of typhoons. This research is therefore selected by the Chief Editor of…

Observations in the context of numerical modeling examine the dynamics underlying eddy-Kuroshio interactions   Mesoscale eddies are everywhere in the ocean. These ocean swirls of either clockwise or counterclockwise spinning with diameter of about 100-300 km and rounding current speed of about 0.5 m/s, carrying energy and certain type of water mass, move westward and eventually reach the western boundary of each ocean. The evolution of these eddies and the interaction which occurs when they encounter the western boundary current, e.g. the Kuroshio in the western North Pacific, is important…

Marine bacterial and protist communities are differentially influenced by species sorting and dispersal limitation Wenxue Wu and Chih-hao Hsieh Institute of Oceanography, National Taiwan University Bacterial and protist communities are the two key components in marine microbial food webs. Even though they are both microbes, these two groups can be geographically structured in distinct manners due to their differences in organismal traits. For example, bacteria and protists do exhibit fine differences in body size, metabolic activity and dispersal potential, in spite of their comparable attributes (e.g., small body size and…
