Tree-ring width chronologies from 276 Larix gmelinii cores taken in northeastern China were used to analyze spatial and age-dependent growth–climate response relationships. Tree radial growth from five localities showed similar patterns, while exhibiting different tree-ring growth responses to local climate. The rotated principal component analysis (RPCA)(More)
This study proposes an event-related potential (ERP) BCI-based environmental control system that integrates household electrical appliances, a nursing bed, and an intelligent wheelchair to provide daily assistance to paralyzed patients with severe spinal cord injuries (SCIs). METHODS An asynchronous mode is used to switch the environmental control system(More)
The forest canopy cover can directly and indirectly affect soil conditions and hence soil carbon emission through soil respiration. Little is known, however, on the effects of canopy cover on soil respiration under the canopy of different tree species and soil water conditions. We have examined the variation in soil respiration at different soil water(More)
Llandovery sporomorphs and graptolites have been recovered from the Manbo Formation, Mojiang area, western Yunnan, China, which belonged to the Indo-China Palaeoplate in the Palaeozoic. The graptolite fauna, including 8 genera and 12 species, is considered Mid Telychian, Llandovery in geological age, confirming the existence of Llandovery rocks in this(More)
Comparisons of soil respiration (RS) and its components of heterotrophic (RH) and rhizospheric (RR) respiration during daytime and nighttime, growing (GS) and dormant season (DS), have not being well studied and documented. In this study, we compared RS, RH, RR, and their responses to soil temperature (T5) and moisture (θ5) in daytime vs. nighttime and GS(More)
The Late Ordovician (Hirnantian, approximately 445 million years ago) extinction event was among the largest known, with 85% species loss [1]. Post-extinction survival faunas are invariably low diversity, especially benthic communities [2], but ecological structure was restored relatively rapidly [1]. This pattern, however, reflects organisms with robust(More)
The spatial distribution of bio- and abiotic factors in ecosystem has the features of spatial heterogeneity in general, and spatial heterogeneity is important in the function and process of ecosystem at a variety of scales. In this paper, semivariance theory and methods were used to study the degree, composition, scale and pattern of spatial heterogeneity(More)
West Sichuan sub-alpine is an extension of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau to southeast China, which is covered mainly with dark coniferous forest. As a result of long-term large scale over-logging, the forests have been greatly reduced and degraded. Nowadays, the forest restoration and regeneration in the region are being highlighted. Selecting Miyaluo as a case(More)
Temperature is a major limiting factor of Pinus koraiensis radial growth, while which exhibited various growth responses at different sites of its distribution area to recent climate warming. Six Korean pine (Pinus koraiensis) tree-ring chronologies were developed in northeast Asia. Growth trends in recent decades were compared and main factors limiting(More)
Regression analysis was used to study the relationship between four diversity indices and 19 soil factors at three different soil layers in ecotone between desert and oasis in Fukang, Xinjiang. The results indicated that soil pH, total salt content, soil organic matter, Cl-, K+ + Na+, Mg2+, total nitrogen, and available phosphorus were correlative to(More)
