Study TypeOther
Abstract The gut microbiota of animals may play a critical role in host adaptation and diversification. The plateau pika (Ochotona curzoniae), a keystone species of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, is adapted to cold, hypoxic high-altitude habitats 3000-6000 m above sea level (masl). The plateau pika therefore pro .. [more]
