Primulina tabacum Hance, is a critically endangered perennial endemic to limestone area in South China. Genetic variability within and among four extant populations of this species was assessed using AFLP markers. We expected a low genetic diversity level of this narrowly distributed species, but our results revealed that a high level of genetic diversity(More)
Based on fractal theory, the fractal characteristics of particle-size distributions of mangrove soils in Yingluo Bay (21 degrees 28'N, 109 degrees 43'E) were studied. The results show that the fractal dimensions of the soils ranged from 2.6837 to 2.8834, and decreased in the order of sand loam < light loam < medium loam < heavy loam < light clay. The(More)
The absorption, accumulation, distribution and cycle of Cu, Pb, Zn, Cr and Ni in S. apetala and S. caseolaris Mangrove Community at Futian Mangrove Nature Reserve of Shenzhen were studied. The results showed that the Cu, Pb, Zn, Cr and Ni contents in forest soil were increased from bottom to surface layer, and the storage of the five heavy metals in the(More)
Mikania micrantha is a perennial weed of Astraceae native to south and central America. It has invaded Southeast Asia, Pacific region and South China. Because Mikania micrantha grows very fast and is hard to control, it has become one of the world's worst weed. In this paper, the history and status of the study on Mikania micrantha was reviewed. The(More)
Based on a 2 x 2 contingency table, the Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient and Spearman rank correlation coefficient were used to analyses the interspecies covariation of dominant tree species in different communities of secondary succession series in Heishiding Natural Reserve, Guangdong Province. In early succession stage, 14 pairs of tree(More)
The analysis showed that 58 species of trees, short-trees and shrubs in Neilingding Island of Guangdong Province were damaged by M. micrantha, of which, woody trees accounted for 67%. Short-trees and sunny shrubs were damaged most seriously, followed by the communities with low canopy density consisted of only 2 dominant species, and those with high canopy(More)
This study determined the sequences of chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) trnL-F non-coding regions of individuals of a tropical coniferous species, Dacrydium pectinatum, collected from 12 natural populations located in Hainan Province, southern China. Sequence length varied from 868 bp to 876 bp, indicating length polymorphism. Base composition in the sequences was(More)
Coniferous forest (Pinus massoniana community), pine-borad leaved mixed forest (Pinus massoniana + Castanopsis kawakamii + Schima superba + Liquidambar formosana) and evergreen broad-leaved forest (Ixonanthes chinensis + Artocarpus styacifolius + Ormosia glaberrima + Cryptocarya concinna) are the three main communities representing 3 major stages in a(More)
