    The composition and species diversity of the communities of Lysidice brevicalyx in Qingxi Forest Farm of Dongguan City,Guangdong were investigated by plot method.Eight plots with an area of 400 m2 were set up in two types of habitats.Four plots were in a relic ravine woodland stand while the rest four plots were in some separate,small patched woods.A total of 142 vascular species were recorded in the plots,which belong to 68 families and 103 genera.The result showed that the floristic diversity index was higher in the relic ravine woodland than those in small patched woods.However,the species richness and evenness of the latter types of woods were higher than the former type.The similarity index of the two community types was 0.41.Both population structures of the two community types possess a degraded pattern with only a few seedlings and saplings.The soil fertility was similar to the surrounding shrubland and grassland,but they were higher than the soils of the neighboring Litchi orchard and plantations.

    Based on the 147 trees of natural mixed Spruce-fir forest sample plots which are located in Jingou Forestry Farm of Wangqing Forestry Bureau in Jilin province,this paper tested the outcomes of calculating the spatial structure indexes based on Voronoi diagram and the outcomes of traditional algorithms that the nearest neighboring trees are 4.The GEMINUS test shows that the outcomes have significantly correlation and agreement between the two when calculating mingling and neighborhood comparison,both are effective results.But the outcomes of traditional method are lower than the outcomes of the Voronoi diagram.Overall,the mingling is higher and the neighborhood comparison is moderate of the natural mixed Spruce-Fir forests.Compared with the traditional method,determining the nearest trees based on Voronoi diagram is a more flexible.Therefore,Voronoi diagram is a more logical choice.

    Based on the inventory data of a 28-years-old Mytilaria laosensis plantation and the biomass measurements of the mean sample trees,the correlation between diameter at breast height (DBH),tree height(H),D2H and different parts of an individual tree were analyzed.Five biomass models,including power function model of individual tree of Mytilaria laosensis in southwest of Guangxi province were established by regression analysis.The results showed that the relationships between stem,branch,bark,total biomass and D2H were significant while the relationships between leaf biomass and DBH and between root biomass and H were significant.In the models in which the independent variable is the DBH (D),tree height (H) and D2H respectively,total tree,trunk,and bark biomass recession models were fitted best,leaf and root biomass recession models were fitted moderately,and branch biomass recession model were fitted worst.Power function model was the best regression model for fitting biomass of the most parts of an individual tree except bark biomass.

    It has a significant meaning to increase the efficiency of the national forest inventory using remote sensing technology.Maximum likelihood,back propagation neural network,and k-nearest neighbor were applied to monitor forest resources for the the Zhuji city.Classification results were compared with forest inventory data.Results showed that these three methods accurately estimated the total area of different forest types with accuracy between 77.53% and 83.18%.However,the accuracies of these three methods are low at town level with relative root mean square error(RMSEr) of 41.83%,44.91%,and 44.18% respectively.Except for shrub forest,these three classification methods are not significantly different(p>0.5).Some techniques,such as multi-source remote sensing image fusion,should be used to increase classification accuracy in future study.
