 Highlights from Nature China

A study of Asian men shows that both obese and underweight individuals with low physical activity are at greater risk of impotence; Desertification in northern China is reversing as a result of climatic changes, Increased human activities alter the balance of nutrients in Chinese coastal waters and more

Nature China will highlight the best research coming out of Mainland China and Hong Kong, providing scientists from around the world with a convenient portal into publications drawn from across all scientific disciplines. Each week, our editors will select the best published research and provide a summary of the results. By organizing this research into a comprehensive, regularly updated, one-stop web portal, we hope to help you quickly reach the resources you need to study, and to keep you up-to-date with the most significant research coming out of Mainland China and Hong Kong.
