Litter decomposition rates of three shrub species (Artemisia halodendron, Salix gordejevii, and Caragana microphylla) in Horqin Sandy Land were investigated. Collected litter was put in nylon bag and then was put on different kinds of sand dunes or was buried deep down in 10 cm, with sampling and weighing it every month. The results showed the decomposition rate of litter put on the fixed sand dunes was higher than the decomposition rate of litter put on the mobile sand dune from May to August… Expand
Effects of sand burial on the survival and growth of two shrubs dominant in different habitats of northern China
TLDR
The survival rate and seedling height of two shrubs along with the soil properties under different burial depths were examined in order to reveal the causing ecophysiological attributes of sand burial on shrubs in the desertified region and it was found that A. halodendron can facilitate the stabilization of mobile dunes because of their high tolerance to the frequent and intensive sand burial.

Fine‐root decomposition characteristics of four typical shrubs in sandy areas of an arid and semiarid alpine region in western China
TLDR
It was showed that tree species and fine‐root diameter strongly affected decomposition rates, whereas diameter class exerted little effect on nutrient release rates. Expand
