Abstract

Saline and sodic soils that cannot be used for agriculture occur worldwide. Cultivating stress-tolerant trees to obtain biomass from salinized areas has been suggested. Various tree species of economic importance for fruit, fibre and timber production exhibit high salinity tolerance. Little is...

Abstract

By setting up a controlled-experiment with soil water content and fertilizer, the seedling were analyzed to investigated the effects of environment on the trade-off and lignification and to understand the reasons and mechanism of the seedling and the seed regeneration. The results showed that: (1) ...

Abstract

Both of water and soil are the most essential factors for the establishment and growth of plants. This study firstly investigated the sexual reproduction of two stages of Populus euphratica, seed germination and seedling growth. We focused on the various screening effects of nine combinations...

Abstract

Populus euphratica is a dominant tree in riparian ecosystems in arid areas of northwest China, but it fails to regenerate in these systems. This study evaluates causes for the failure of sexual and asexual regeneration of this species in the wild. P. euphratica disperses as many as 85743 seeds/m2...

Abstract

Seed dispersal is a fundamental process affecting destinies of seeds and seedlings, as well as regeneration dynamics and distribution patterns of communities. Recently however, declining Populus euphratica forests have failed to regenerate by seeding, while the spatial pattern and utility of their...

Abstract

The dynamic environments in riparian zones support a variety of life-history strategies, which constitute a fundamental mechanism for development and maintenance of biodiversity in riparian forest ecosystems. To demonstrate the effect of life-history strategies on biodiversity, we investigated...

Abstract

Conservation of Desert Non-commercial Forests in Northwest China of Xinjiang is an important and effective way of restoring vegetation and rapid formation of stable community. Being closed the forests is desired for these activities, but tending them can be hampered by lack of community...

Abstract

The Black Gobi desert is the most arid regions in the dryland. The aim of this paper is to study the flora and its plant species diversity in the Black Gobi ecosystems by using the technique of pilotless aircraft and survey plots. The results showed that: (1) The life forms are relatively simple...

Abstract

The seed rain of Populus euphratica in Ejina Oasis was continuously studied in the years of 2004, 2006, 2007, and 2008. The duration of P. euphratica seed rain in a community was usually 2 to 3 weeks, with a peak period of 7 to 14 days. Approximately 90% of the total number of seeds were dispersed...

Abstract

An investigation method with sample plots was used to study insect communities in four different growth phases of natural Populus euphratica forests, which are juvenile, middle aged, over-mature and degraded forests, in Tarim, Xinjiang in July, 2005 and April, 2006. In our studies, 5,116 insect...
