Soil organic carbon stock and chemical composition in four plantations of indigenous tree species in subtropical China
Subtropical China has more than 60% of the total plantation area in China and over 70% of these subtropical plantations are composed of pure coniferous species. In view of low ecosystem services andExpand
Characteristics and Sources of Metals in TSP and PM2.5 in an Urban Forest Park at Guangzhou
Urban forest parks play important roles in improving environments, protecting biodiversity and even public welfare. Aerosols, including total suspended particles (TSP) and particulate matter withExpand
Effects of future climate change, CO2 enrichment, and vegetation structure variation on hydrological processes in China
Abstract Investigating the relationship between factors (climate change, atmospheric CO 2 concentrations enrichment, and vegetation structure) and hydrological processes is important forExpand
Differential effects of conifer and broadleaf litter inputs on soil organic carbon chemical composition through altered soil microbial community composition
Soil alkyl/O-alkyl C was significantly related to the amounts of total microbial, and Gram-positive bacterial PLFAs, but not to the chemical compositions of leaf litter, suggesting that changes in forest leaf litter inputs could result in changes in chemical stability of SOC through the altered microbial community composition.

This paper studied the change of soil physical and chemical properties under eleven vegetation restoration patterns typical in Daqingshan of Guangxi, finding the soil physical properties were better in secondary forest but poorer in pure conifer plantations. Expand
[The variability of vegetation beginning date of greenness period in spring in the north-south transect of eastern China based on NOAA NDVI].
NDVI based on NOAA/AVHRR from 1982 to 2003 are used to monitor variable rules for the growing season in spring of vegetation in the north-south transect of eastern China (NSTEC) and changes of vegetation greenness period in spring have spatio-temporal patterns. Expand
[Effects of Pinus massoniana plantation stand density on understory vegetation and soil properties].
Understory vegetation and soil properties of Pinus massoniana plantations with different stand density in subtropical area were studied and shrub biomass had the same variation trend as that of shrub species diversity index, while herb biomass decreased with increasing stand density. Expand
[Characteristics of carbon storage and sequestration in different age beech (Castanopsis hystrix) plantations in south subtropical area of China].
Castanopsis hystrix had a high capability in carbon sequestration, being able to be an ideal tree species for multi-purpose forest management with large and valuable timber production. Expand
[The relationship between soil respiration and the temperature at different soil depths in subalpine coniferous forest of western Sichuan Province].
Soil respiration rate had a significant exponential correlation with the temperature at different soil depths, and the highest correlation occurred at the soil depth of 15 cm, indicating that the Q10 value of soil respiration tended to be larger at high elevation with low temperature. Expand
