    The Mongolian pine(Pinus sylvestris var.mongolica) is broadly introduced to sandy lands in north China,because of its good ecological adaptation. The Champan-Richards growth model is used to simulate the growth of diameter at breast height (DBH), height and volume of single tree in Honghuaerji and Zhanggutai regions. The results indicate that the quantitative maturity age of natural Mongolian pine forest in Honghuaerji is 100 years old and that of plantation in Zhanggutai is 46 years old, and that the fast-growing period is longer in Honghuaerji than in Zhanggutai.

    Studies on the characteristics of short and long shoots of Larix gmelinii and the effect of burning on them show that short shoot grows rapidly in early spring, and the growth of long shoot plays a key role in constructing the structure of branches and crown of Larix gmelinii. A long shoot can produce 10.5 short ones in the next year. Medium fire can give a serious injury on the branches and crown of Larix gmelinii. After burning, 37% short shoot buds on the first class swig are turned into long shoots, which accelerates the branches and crown structure. In the 3rd year after burning, the total number of short shoots is 98.46% of that before burning.

    The difference in N, P and K contents of hillside fields under different harvesting frequencies is investigated at Hong Kong, Heshan and Shenzhen study sites. There are significantdifferences in total and available nutrient contents among sampling locations. Soil nutrient contents on uncutting hills are significantly higher than those on often-cutting ones, and in the former case, soil N content is in the order of Hong Kong >Shenzhen >Heshan.Lower soil layers have a higher P content than upper often-cutting hill has a highernutrient content at Shenzhen than at Heshan. It is suggested that vegetation harvestingshould be done under optimal frequency and within optimal season to minimize its detrimental effect.

    The study shows that a cultivation mode of gyrotilling and row-seeding is the optimal mode of seeding for high yield wheat on the field after rice harvesting along Huanghe River banks. Compared with zero-tillage and spread seeding, this cultivation mode makes soilhave a higher temperature, lower bulk density, higher moisture content and persistent high fertilizer efficiency. The population and individuals of wheat are well developed,spike density and tiller number are higher, and thousand-grain weight and yield are thehighest.

    Asbtract ( 1512 )   PDF (257KB) ( 610 )  
    The canopy temperature, soil temperature, soil humidity, air temperature and relativehumidity are measured at burned, unburned, overgraing and ungrazing plots of Aneurolepidium chinense grassland. The results show that at daytime, the canopy temperature atburned plot is about 2.5~5 ℃ lower than that at unburned one, but about 0.1~1 ℃ higher at night. The soil temperature at burned plot is about 5~7.5℃ higher than that at unburned one at daytime, but about 1~ 2.5℃ higher at night. No significant difference ofcanopy temperature is found between overgrazing and ungrazing plots, but soil temperature at overgazing plot is higher than that at ungrazing one. At the same plot, the temperature of lower canopy is higher than that of higher one at daytime, but lower at night.Soil surface layer has a higher temperature than the deeper layers at daytime, but has alower one at night.

    Asbtract ( 1442 )   PDF (227KB) ( 517 )  
    The study shows that the distribution of Oncomelunia hupensis is closely related with theunderground water level in forest land. O.hupensis has a maximum density,when the underground water level is 20~40 cm, and approaches to zero when the level is<1.55 cmor >75.7 cm. Its density in forest land is also affected by the flooding period of Changjiang River. Within a period of 100 inundated days, the longer the inundated time,the greater the O.hupensis density. Among 36 species of grass in herb layer, Lecnurks heterophgllas, Equisetum arvellse, Calystegia hederacea, Polygonum lapathifolium and Astragalas sinicus are negatively, and Roedria scandens and Oenanthe javanica are positively correlated with the density of O.hupensis.

    Studies on the predatory selectivity of Harmonia axyridis show that it has a positive preference to Hyalopterus amygdali, but a negative one to Erythroneura sudra. When one of these preies exists alone, the functional response of H.axyridis shows the HollingⅡtype. When both of them exist simultaneously, but one′s density is less,the functional respones of H. axyridis on another prey still shows the Holling Ⅱ type.If one prey has a higher density. the functional response of H. aryridis shows the Holling Ⅱ type on E.sudra,but the Holling Ⅱ type on H. amygdali.

    Four aggregation indices I,Ca,m/m,Iδare used to analyze the spatial distribution pattern of Rhopalosiphum padi on winter wheat fields after earing. The results indicate that the distribution of aphids is in aggregative pattern during fifteen days after earing and beforeharvesting, and in uniform pattern from the fifteenth to thirtysixth day after earing. Thechange of spatial distribution pattern is related with the proportion of plants carrying aphids (q0). Their aggregative pattern is transformed into uniform one when the proportion of plants carrying aphids(q0) is more than 93%. Sample size requirements for estimating population means with fixed level of precision are also available to cereal aphids,and the pest control threshold can be estimated by the proportion of plants uncarrying aphids (p0).

    Studies on the ecologic effect of Cu and Zn on the growth of Chaetoceros mulleri show that when the ionic activities of Cu and Zn are less than 0~10-7.80 and 0~10-7.00 mol·L-1respectively,the growth of C.mulleri is normal. Its optium requirement to the ionic activity of Cu is 10-13.57~10-10.53mol·L-1, but for Zn,it is not essential at lower ionic activity. When the ionic activities if Cu and Zn are higher than 10-7.80 and 10-7.00 mol·L-1 respectively,they will have a harmful effect to C.mulleri. Cu has a higher toxicity than Zn.

    The transformation and residues of priority organic pollutants in SR-LTS (Slow Rate Land Treatment System) of west Shenyang were studied in this paper. The results show that total contents of priority organic pollutants in culticated soil of SR-LTS and traditional wastewater irrigation areas and underground water are one and four times higherthan those in control area, respectively. And there is a very similar distribution of priority organic pollutants in effluent, underground water of SR-LTS and traditional wastewater irrigation areas. It is suggested that organic pollutants in irrigating wastewater have an influence on soil and underground water. However, no obvious difference in priority organic pollutant contents in rice grain produced under the treatments of SR-LTS, traditional wastewater irrigation and clean water irrigation is detected.

    Asbtract ( 1431 )   PDF (292KB) ( 524 )  
    Based on literature data, the effect of increased deposition of atmospheric nitrogen on forest ecosystem is discussed in this paper. During last decades,the deposition of atmospheric nitrogen is increased dramatically, and the relationship between nitrogen deposition and nitrogen emission is linear. In some areas, nitrogen deposition has exceeded the N requirement by forest ecosystem. The stimulation of plant growth and the damage to mycorrhizae by the increased nitrogen deposition, the exchange of absorbed excess NH4+ forother nutrient canons in plant,and the competitive inhibition of the uptake of other nutrient cations by high level of NH4+ in soil can lead to the deficiency of other nutrients in plant and the disorder of forest nutrition. The increase in nitrogen deposition will result in enhanced nitrification, promoted leaching of NO3- and concomitant base canons, accelerated soil acidifieation, and forced Al and Mn mobilization. A high level of nitrogen inplant due to the assimilation of large amount of excess nitrogen will increase the susceptibility of tree plant to the stress of cold, frost, fungal pathogens and possible insect attacks. The chronic increase in nitrogen deposition can induce the change in community through interfering with successional dynamics.

    The agro-animal husbandry eco-engineering is a complex agro-ecological, economic and technological system.It is composed of three subsystems:plant (crop industry), animal (livestock industry) and microbe (linking crop and livestock industry). The key is to set up an effective and economical livestock eco-engineering system which is mainly composed of"4,3,2,1" animal production model. The objectives of this model are toproduce as many and as fine crop -livestock products as possible from as less natural resources as possible in as short periods as possible, to obtain as high economic benefits as possible, and to achieve as optimum eco-balance as possible.

    Asbtract ( 1782 )   PDF (514KB) ( 1455 )  
    On the basis of reviewing the last decades'literatures on ecological effects of pesticides on soil microorganisms,following conclusions can be derived:(1) although some pesticidesmight cause temperate inhibition or stimulation on soil microbe or its activity, the effects would disappear quickly;(2) application of pesticides at their recommended concentrations does not have any adverse impact on soil microbial processes or activities, nor onmaterial cycling in soil or soil fertility; (3) most soil furpigants and fungicides can affectsoil microbial balance, and their effects are usually more intensive than insecticides and herbicides; and (4) long-term investigations indicate that no significant effects on soil microbial communities or activites could be observed in case of consistent use of pesticides,which might be partly due to their transformation and degradation by soil microorganisms.
