    This paper is a report on the studies on the biomass and litter fall of A.glauca community in artificial stand in Xiamen.

    1. The biomass of 5-year-old A. glauca comm. is 81.0t/ha, and the average net productivity is 16.2t/ha·a. Its solar radiant efficient is 0.56%. The extinction coefficient of the stand in autumn is 0.52. This biomass can be expressed by the regression equation as W =a+bD+cD2 in which W is the theoretical biomass; D is the basal diameter;a, b, and c are constants.

    2. The annual litter fall in 5-year-old A. glauca comm. is 7.88 t/ha. The content of the major elements in the falling leaves of A. glauca is (kg/ha·a) 152.1 for N, 32.3 for P, and 26.0 for K, and is higher than those in Pinus massoniana and Acacia confusa locally. The decomposite efficiency of the litter fall is fast.

    Seeds of Pinus armandii, collected from 6 different provenances, were studied. The result shows significant georaphical variation strongly correlated to the vegetation zones. Seeds produced from temperate steppe zone (Xunhua, Guyuan)and western subtropical evergreen broad-leaf forest zone (Huidong) were bigger, heavier and less dormant, even non-dormant, while those from warm temperate deciduous broad-leaf forest zone (Lantian) and eastern subtropical evergreen broad-leaf forest zone (Yichang, Jiangyou) were smaller, Lighter and more dormant. Oil content, fatty acid and amino acid compositions of decoated seeds also varied with their vegetation zones. Stratification for 20 days (at 0—5℃) proved to be effective, regardless of seeds’dormancy state.

    In light of the field-investigation at the fixed position from 1982—1988, a quantitutive analysis was done on the change of seed rain, and the relationships between the seed rain and water-heat climatic factors in Spipa grandis community was discussed in this paper. There were 46 plant species altogether and 9 of which were constant species in the seed rain of the community. The density of S. grandis which is dominant species was only about 0.3—1.3% in the total density of the seed rain every year. The seed rain density of dicotyledon group was generally about 1.5—13.5 times higher than that of the monocotyledon group, and the perennial group were 0.2—7.4 times higher before 1985,but 0.4—1.0 times lower after 1986 than the annual group in the community. The ratios of hemicryptophytes were usually the highest in life form spectrum of the seedrain plants every year. There was positive correlation of different value between the seedrain densities of both some plant groups and constant populations and the sunshine hours,the accumulated temperature, the rainfall in the earlier-middle growing season, and the rainfall in different periods preceding growing season respectively.

    This article is a general study on the distribution, origin, change, biological characteristics, law of growth and development, community type, structure, regeneration and succession of Keteleeiria davidiana in Dangyong.A large area of pure and mixed forest in the hilly area at the low altitude of 100—393 m is reported.Keteleeiria davidiana in hilly area in Dangyang was originated 60 million years ago. Without the damage of Quaternary glacier and little disturbance by human in history, it survives until today.The properties of Keteleeiria davidiana is very similar to that of Pinus massoniana. It has easy propagation, good adaptability, and long life. It can grow into big trees. Single tree growth speed are not lower than that of Pinus massoniana. The species has strong germination and regeneration ability, thus several harvests are possible once planted.It is proposed to use the species as an improved timber source fnlarge-scale artificial forests in its adaptable region. However, the specis in now on the verge of extinction, we propose to protect it as grade 3 protectd species.

    The relation of distribution, density and diurnal changes of stomatal opening and closure in six plants of alpine Kobresia humilis meadow were studied during May–September in 1986. The results indicate that the leaf stomata of most plants are distributed in both the upper and lower epidermis, but with the K. humilis they are distributed in the lower epidermis, and with the Festuca ovina, they are all distributed in the upper epidermis. The leaf stomata open at 9 am until 3pm and then close gradually. Transpiration intensity of plants varies with the stomata’s opening and closure. The transpiration intensity of K. humilis achieved peak at about 11 am, but Elymus nutans and Saussurea superba at about 1 pm, after which it falls gradually until stops completely sunset. The changes of stomatal opening and closure as well as the transpiration intensity of plants are affected by both air temperture and the relative ambient humidity.

    There are six main forest community types in the forest district of the north mountain of Ledu county. The test and analysis of the physical preperties of forest soil, forest litter, water absorption capacity, the infiltration velocity of soil and underground run-off as well as the estimate of the efficacy of water conservation point out that forest community soil of this area contain good efficacy of water conservation. It shows that volume-weight is reduced and porocity is increased. The forest community soil of this area can conserve water about 461—978t/ha. The absorbing water capacity of forest litter is 2.9—7.6 more than its weight. The infiltration velocity of soil is far more than maximum rainfall intensity of this area.

    Effects of inorganic nutrition on the adaptations of spring wheat to drought were studied, including the changing process and the degree of osmotic adjustment, the accumulation of free proline, changes of leaf conductance, water loss rate of leaves in vitro, variations of leaf area and water consumption, the root growth and root/shoot ratio. Then, variances of grain yield and water use efficiency (WUE) were discussed. It follows that the effects of inorganic nutrition on the adaptations of different organs and different physiological activities in the spring wheat were not in the same direction: some were benificial to resist drought, others could change the process of a few physioecological adaptations, and still others were detrimental to the drought resistance. Comprehensive analyses explained that increasing yields of dryland crpos with fertilizer are mainly because the need of nutrients in drop growth is satisfied and the root development is promoted as a result of raised WUE, but are not because the drought tolerance of crop plants is significantly strenghened.

    The light-photosynthesis and the ecophysiology responese of various kinds of keny typical rice (Oryza sativa subap. Keng Ting) at different altitudes to light and temperature were investigated under field culture and pot culture conditions. The five varieties of keny rice were used. Keng No. 10, Dao No 4, Mei Dan,79-2 and Chu Keng No. 3 altitudes of 2510, 2490, 2400, 2200 and 1850m, respectively. The results indicated all photosynthetic characteristics of keny rice varieties at different altitudes showed apparent gradient variations. Under lower intensity of illumination, the photosynthetic rate at the ear-bearing stage would gradually decrease in Keng rice varieties along with the increase in altitude. Under higher intensity of illumination, however, the rate would gradually increase along with the increase in altitude. The relationships between photosynthesis of Keng rice and illumination could be determined by the curve equations: p=a+blgI, where p is photosynthetic rate, I is light intensity. The light saturation point of keng rice showed a tendency to increase with the rise of altitude. The effects of shading on yield parameters of keng rice at bighter altitudes were much greater than of keng rice at lower altitudes. The plateau keng rice varieties have high coldtolerance when different varieties exposed to low temperature at the blooming stage. The results suggested that different photosynthetic ecophysiology responses to light-temperature were determined by their difference in matabolic pattern and adaptability to the environment.

    In this paper, the maximal-tree method of the fuzzy graph theory is applied to the numerical classfication research of vegetational regionalism of Shanxi Province,which is divided into 2 vegetational zones, 6 vegetational regions, 17 vegetational plots. Compared with fuzzy clustering analysis and other methods which are used in plant synecology, the maximal-tree method of the fuzzy graph theory produces tree graph from similar coefficient matrices directly so that it avoids the comples compound calculation of similar coefficient matrices. However, the result is not only more audio-visual, but also more satisfactory, Thus we deem it suitable to apply the fuzzy graph theory to vetetational regionalism.
