To determine the effect of grassland degradation on the soil carbon pool in alpine grassland. In this study, we calculated the carbon pool in the above-and below-ground biomass, the soil microbial biomass carbon pool, the total organic carbon pool and the soil total carbon. Grassland degradation has resulted in decreases in biomass and carbon content and(More)
To understand effects of soil microbes on soil biochemistry in alpine grassland ecosystems under environmental changes, we explored relationships between soil microbial diversity and soil total nitrogen, organic carbon, available nitrogen and phosphorus, soil microbial biomass and soil enzyme activities in alpine meadow, alpine steppe and cultivated(More)
In photosynthesis, the pigments chlorophyll a/b absorb light energy to convert to chemical energy in chloroplasts. Though most enzymes of chlorophyll biosynthesis from glutamyl-tRNA to chlorophyll a/b have been identified, the exact composition and regulation of the multimeric enzyme Mg-protoporphyrin IX monomethyl ester cyclase (MPEC) is largely unknown.(More)
The objective of this study was to explore the distribution of poisonous plants and soil quality in relation to grassland degradation in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) by employing poisonous plants characteristics including diversity index, coverage and composition and the soil properties including soil physical, chemical, and biological indicators.
