    Pinus tabulaeformis is not only one of representative tree species in warm temperate zone, but also an important afforestation tree species in northern China. The population structure and spatial patterns of main woody plant species were studied. The results showed that the population structure of P. tabulaeformis was a reverse pyramid type. The age structure of the population was declining due to lack of seedlings and saplings. The population structure of other 5 broadleaved populations, such as Quercus liaotungensis, Acer tegmentosum and etc, was a spindle type and the age structure of these populations was ascending. As to the distribution pattern, the P. tabulaeformis, Q. liaotungensis, Prunus armniaca, Populus davidiana and Crateagus pinnatifida population were clump in all research scales. Betula platyphylla and Acer ginnala population patterns were the same, clump for small scales, random for middle and large scales. The spatial pattern of Acer tegmentosum population was random for middle scales, but clump for small and large scales. As to Acer mono population, the spatial distribution pattern was random in all scales. Varied with scales, the spatial patterns of Alnus japonica changed from clump to regular. The spatial patterns of the woody plant population in upper and lower layers were also analyzed. The result showed that the spatial patterns of upper layer's and lower layer's tree species were all clump tendency, whereas the latter varied from clump to random. The population spatial pattern was decided mainly by long-term interactions among the biological, ecological characteristics and its environmental conditions, which showed the survival strategy and adaptive mechanism in certain degree.

    In the paper, the research object was Abies georgei var.smithii that distributes in Sejila mountain of Tibet. For the research,fifteen 30m×30m plots were set up and the contiguous grid quadrats applied to sampling for field data. The population characteristics were analyzed including height structure, basal diameter structure, age structure and spatial pattern. The results indicated that three structures of A. georgei population manifested as the anti-"J" type, the correlation was obvious, the relationship of basal diameter and age was y=13.5640x0.7078 (R2=0.9144), seedlings backup reserved particularly large, the death rate was high, but the supplemental rate was higher than the death rate and the population was steady. Under different scales, the spatial patterns of different age-class (developmental stage) plant were different. With the sampling scale increasing, the spatial patterns of different age-class plants were clumped distribution pattern, but tended to be uniform distribution pattern, the degrees of intensity were decreasing from high to low, the same sampling scale, the greater the age class, the weaker the intensity. The research results provided the theoretical basis for management and sustainable utilization of A. georgei.

    The characteristics and species diversity of the Litsea monopetala community in Ilha Verde Hill of Macao were studied. Based on data from 1100 m2 plot. 47 species in 42 genera and 27 families of vascular plants were found. The floral composition of the community was divided into 9 areal types, and tropical elements predominated. The appearance of community was characterized by everygreen phanerophytes plants with mesophyll,entire and single leaf. The diameter classes of dominant populations implicated that the community dominated by Litsea monopetala may remain constant, while the amount of Terospermum heterophyllum and Sterculia lanceolata may increase. The horizontal spatial patterns of 3 dominance populations conform to aggregated distribution. The species diversity of the community is relatively poor with Magarlef index at 4.9072, Shannon-Wiener index at 0.8742, Simpson index at 1.1641 and Pielou index at 0.3024. Species diversity comparison with 3 communities of adjacent regions indicated that the value of arbor-shrub layer species Shannon-Wiener index was lower than that of Endospermum chinense community in Hong Kong, Cryptocarya chinensis community in Dinghushan Natural Reserve and Schefflera heptaphylla community in Nanshan District Shenzhen City, owing to its insularity, dominant populations and invasive species. This situation suggested that some necessary measures should be taken to restore the diversity in Litsea monopetala community.

    Research on the functions of vegetation for reducing wind-sand disaster through field test was conducted. The results indicate that plants can obviously increase the surface roughness of different dunes, which provides mechanism of wind-preventing and sand-controlling. With the vegetation coverage increasing, the sand transporting amount and sand erosion (accumulation) and dust drops amount significantly reduced. Based on the analysis on sand transport rate of the different dunes, we can see that the rate separately drops 93.6% in fixed dune and 59.8% in semi-fixed dune. Comparing with the newly cultivated sandy land the wind-erosion status only has 32.6% in fixed dune and 73.4% in semi-fixed dune in the month of highest wind-erosion status. There is a common regularity. The dust amount concentrates in April, May and June, and biggest in April, accounting for 1/4~1/2 of the total; the dust amount changes significantly on horizontal or vertical gradient in each month.
