Human activities are affecting the habitat, which decrease the number of habitats and recede the quality. The biggest threat to species diversity worldwide is the loss of suitable habitat. Human activities affect species dynamics and further influence species diversity by changing habitat. Species evolvement at different types of habitat is very complex, so there is an urgency to understand species responses to human-caused habitat degradation. Spatial pattern and competition relationship are… Expand

The effects of grazing on the spatial pattern of elm ( Ulmus pumila L.) in the sparse woodland steppe of Horqin Sandy Land in northeastern China
Abstract. The aim of this study was to explore the effects of grazing on the formation of the spatial pattern of elm growth in a sparse woodland steppe. We used a point pattern method to analyze theExpand
Don’t judge toxic weeds on whether they are native but on their ecological effects
It is highlighted that the establishment of toxic weeds may provide a self‐protective strategy of degenerated pastures that do not require special interventions, and policymakers, managers, and other personnel responsible for managing grasslands need to take appropriate actions to assess the long‐term trade‐offs between the development of animal husbandry and the maintenance of ecological services provided by grasslands.

Fine-scale spatial associations of Stipa krylovii and Stellera chamaejasme population in alpine degraded grassland
Grassland degradation is one of the important environment and resource issues in North China.Different degrees of grassland degradation in alpine grassland are mainly caused by global climateExpand
Fine-scale spatial point patterns of Stipa krylovii population in different alpine degraded grasslands
Spatial distribution pattern is important in plant ecology as it affected the dynamics of plant populations,communities and ecosystem processes,which can reveal the dynamic and stability ofExpand
Fine-scale spatial patterns of Stellera chamaejasme population in degraded alpine grassland in upper reaches of Heihe,China
The point pattern method was used to analyze population pattern, size and density of S.chamaejasme cover in the upper reaches of Heihe,China, and found that with increasing cover, the population density and territory density tended to increase,decrease, and then increase and the number of the S. chamaejame population tended to increased and decrease in turn.

Grazing impact on distribution pattern of the plant communities and populations in Stipa krylovii steppe.
This study showed that the changes of plant patch structure in community and population pattern were the basic for population colonization and recession during grassland succession, and also the mechanism for the succession of grassland plant communities. Expand
Study on Vegetation Community's Structure of Degraded Grassland of Noxious and Miscellaneous Grass Type
On the degraded grassland of noxious and miscellaneous grass type, according to its different degree of the degradation and the distribution of the Stellera chamaejasme L., the main noxious grass onExpand
Background and Aims Artemisia ordosica is an important sand fixation plant in north China, whereas few studies were conducted on its population patterns. Population patterns of this species areExpand
The role of biomass allocation strategy in diversity loss due to fertilization
It is concluded that the individual biomass responses and biomass allocation strategy can partly explain diversity loss due to fertilization, a result consistent with the interspecific competition hypothesis. Expand
Analysis of spatial pattern and competition relationship of shrub community in arid desert of Western Ordos Plateau.
It is suggested that shrubs possessing different ecological characters occupy respective soil layers and stratify to use water and nutrient in soil, and have no competition to resources with each other in arid desert of Western Ordos Plateau. Expand
Hetergeneityies of Leymus secalinus ramet population and it's soil resources in the Otindag Sandland
There was different tendency in the changes of number of ramet and aboveground biomass in Leymus secalinus, soil water content and soil nutrient from the lowland meadow, the ecotone of lowlands meadow to the sand accretion area, and the soilWater content was only autocorrelation in the sand Accretion area.

Comparative analysis of inter-specific association within the Stipa grandis-S.krylovii community in typical steppe of Inner Mongolia,China
The overall inter-specific association among 24 plant species of the community showed no correlation, indicating that species association was weak, and the distribution and formation patterns of patches were verified by analyzing species correlation in the three kinds of Stipa patches. Expand
