Abstract:
Objective To analyze and compare the temporal and spatial differences in soil heavy metal content in the water-fluctuation zone of the Three Gorges reservoir area, study the current situation of metal pollution in this area, and put forward prevention and control measures. Methods The soils in the flooded area (elevation 145-175 m) and unflooded area (elevation 175-185 m) from the water-fluctuation zone of the Three Gorges reservoir area in the Zigui section in 2008, 2014, and 2018 were used for the study. We examined the physicochemical properties and copper (Cu), iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), and zinc (Mn) contents of these samples through the digestion method. Results The results showed that: (1) The contents of soil total nitrogen (TN), total phosphorus (TP) and organic matter (SOM) in the flooded area continued to decrease from 2008 to 2018. The soil pH increased compared with 2008 and it was close to 7 in 2018. (2) As of 2018, the contents of Cu, Fe, Mn and Zn in the soil of water level fluctuating zone have been increasing. The geological accumulation index pollution degree of Zn in the middle and lower part of water level fluctuating zone (elevation 145~165 m) and the soil in the non-flooded area was “strong”; Cu in the lower part of the water level fluctuating zone (elevation 145~165 m) and Zn in the soil in the middle and lower part of water level fluctuating zone and non-flooded area had caused slight ecological risks. (3) The correlation analysis between soil physical and chemical properties and the contents of four heavy metals in water level fluctuating zone showed that the rise of soil pH might bring the risk of increasing the accumulation of four heavy metals. The increase of soil TP might reduce the accumulation of four heavy metals in the soil, while the increase of soil TN content might cause the increase of soil Fe and Mn in the non-flooded area and the decrease of Cu and Zn in the flooded area. Conclusion In summary, the operation of the Three Gorges Dam has caused a decline in the quality of soil nutrients such as reducing nitrogen and phosphorus contents. The status of soil heavy metal pollution in water level fluctuating zone cannot be ignored, especially the ecological risks of Cu and Zn. Therefore, long-term monitoring should be continued, and artificial intervention means such as changing vegetation composition can be considered if necessary.

Abstract:
Objective To understand the relationship between water and carbon metabolism and growth and fruiting of branches at different positions in the crown of Hippophae rhamnoides for providing a certain theoretical basis for the formulation of cultivation technical measures for Hippophae rhamnoides tree shape culture. Method According to the two-year-old branches in the upper, middle and lower crown of Hippophae rhamnoides, water status, photosynthesis, non-structural carbohydrate (NSC) content, branch and leaf growth, fruiting traits and fruit nutrients were compared. Result The results showed that there was no significant difference in the pre-dawn water potential of branches in different parts of the crown, and the water potential of the bottom branches at midday was significantly higher than that of the upper and middle branches. The percentage loss of conductivity (PLC) of the middle branch in pre-dawn was significantly lower than that of upper and lower branches, and the PLC of the bottom branch at midday was significantly higher than that of top and middle branches. The stem and leaf area specific hydraulic conductivity of upper branches was significantly higher than that of middle and lower branches. The net photosynthetic rate in the top branch was the largest, followed by middle branch and bottom branch. NSC content in xylem of middle branches was significantly higher than that of upper branches, but there was no significant difference between the upper and lower branches, as well as between the middle and lower branches. There was no significant difference in NSC content in phloem among branches, and the NSC content in leaves of upper and middle branches was significantly higher than that of lower branches. The vertical and horizontal diameter of flower buds, the proportion of pure flower buds, the germination rate, the number of new shoots, the basal diameter of new shoots, the leaf area and the specific leaf mass of the bottom branches were significantly lower than those of the upper and middle branches. The fruit size, fruit setting rate and soluble solid content of the bottom branches were also significantly lower than those of the upper and middle branches. The branch length and base diameter of the upper branches are significantly higher than that of the middle branch. The fruit quality and fruit vertical and horizontal diameter of the middle branch were significantly higher than those of the upper branch. There was no significant difference in the contents of flavonoids, vitamin C and titratable acid among different branches. Conclusion The lower branches are greatly affected by shading, which significantly restricts the uptake and growth of photosynthetic products, and affects their fruiting traits. The upper branches are dominant in growth, and the middle branches are dominant in fruiting traits. Therefore, the tree-shaped cultivation of Hippophae rhamnoides should take full account of its light conditions, and timely remove the branches in the lower light area. At the same time, we should pay attention to the balance between nutritional growth and reproductive growth, and making full use of the upper and middle branches of the crownfor improving the yield and quality of Hippophae rhamnoides.

Abstract:
Objective The aim this study was to explore the distribution patterns and limitation of nutrient elements in subtropical forest species in southern Yunnan, for revealing the adaptive mechanism of tree species under a changing environment. Method The dominant species in three types of tropical forests, i.e., tropical seasonal rain forests, tropical montane rain forests and montane moist evergreen broad-leaved forests, were sampled in southern Yunnan to analyze C, N, P and their stoichiometric ratios in sapling stems. Result 1) The total C of sapling stems of dominant species in the three types of tropical forests generally increased, but total N and P decreased with increasing elevation. 2) The ratios of stem C:N and C:P in montane moist evergreen broad-leaved forests were relatively high compared to other two types of forests. The ratio of stem N:P both in tropical seasonal rain forests and tropical montane rain forests were less than 14, while this value in montane moist evergreen broad-leaved forests was higher than 16. 3) The stem C and N of dominant species in upper canopy were smaller than lower canopy. However, total P contents in upper canopy was higher than those in lower canopy. The value of N:P in upper canopy was less than 14, whereas it was higher than 16 in lower canopy. These results suggested that the growth of dominant species in upper canopy was mainly limited by N. 4) The results of Redundancy analysis revealed that elevation and community had a great effect on C, N and P contents and their stoichiometric ratios in sapling stems of dominant species. Conclusion Montane moist evergreen broad-leaved forest has a relatively high nutrient efficiency, and the forest ecosystems in southern Yunnan are mainly limited by N and P contents. The difference of ecological stoichiometric characteristics in trees under different environments can reveal the coping mechanisms of species adaptating to changing environments.

[Abstract](254) [FullText HTML](189) [PDF 820KB](8)
Abstract:
Objective To study the nutrient resorption characteristics of Pinus thunbergii under different densities (high density: 1150 plants·hm−2, medium density: 535 plants·hm−2, low density: 285 plants·hm−2)and the effects of leaves and soil nutrient contents and stoichiometric characteristics on the resorption efficiency, in order to provide a scientific basis for the rational management of Pinus thunbergii. Method Taking Pinus thunbergii in the shelter forest of Muping coastal zone in Yantai as the research object, by collecting mature leaves, senescing leaves and soil samples of 0-20 cm under forest of Pinus thunbergii with different stand densities, the carbon (C), nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) of leaves and soil, nitrate nitrogen (NO3 -N), ammonium nitrogen (NH4 +-N), available phosphorus (AP) contents were determined, and researched the nutrient resorption characteristics of Pinus thunbergii at different densities, and analyzed the resorption of Pinus thunbergii leaves under different densities characteristics, leaves and soil nutrient contents, stoichiometric characteristics and their correlations. Result (1)The average nitrogen resorption rate (NRE) and phosphorus resorption rate (PRE) were 52.44% and 48.53% in Muping coastal shelter forest. The NRE was higher than the average level of global coniferous forests, and the PRE was lower than the average level of global coniferous forests. Under the three densities, the growth and development of Pinus thunbergii were more restricted by N, which was consistent with the “relative resorption hypothesis”. (2)In the medium density area, the nutrient contents and resorption rates of mature leaves were the highest, and the NRE was significantly higher than high stand densities. The contents of C, N and P in mature leaves of Pinus thunbergii increased with the increase of density and then decreased, and the contents of senescing leaves were not significantly different among different densities. At medium density, C:N of mature leaves was significantly higher than that of low and high density; C:P of senescing leaves was significantly lower at low density. (3) Soil AP content was significantly higher in low-density forests; soil TN was significantly higher in medium-density forests; soil TP in high density stands was significantly lower than that in medium and low density stands. Soil C:N and C:P were significantly higher at high density, and at medium density, N:P was significantly higher than low and high density. (4) Nutrients and stoichiometric indicators of senescing leaves had more significant effects on nutrient resorption, and the responses of NRE and PRE to leaf and soil nutrients and their stoichiometric characteristics were different under different densities. Conclusion In our experimental condition, Pinus thunbergii with medium density can relatively improve the nutrient utilization efficiency, which is more conducive to adapting to the N limitation in this area.

Abstract:
Objective To verify the formation mechanism of the alpine treeline and explore the limiting factors of the upper limit of tree distribution. Methods In the low altitude coniferous and broad-leaved mixed forest (3500 m), suitable altitude area (3900 m) and high altitude treeline transition zone (4300 m) in Sygera Mountain, the contents of non-structural carbohydrates and C, N, and P in leaves, branches, stems and roots of Abies georgei var. smithii as well as were measured both in the growing season (early July) and non-growing season (end of November). Results The results showed that the non-structural carbohydrate sources and sinks of Abies georgei var. smithii were stable in different growing seasons, and there was no insufficient carbon supply. There were little effects of altitude on the non-structural carbohydrates and their components in Abies georgei var. smithii . There were significant differences in NSC content among organs, and the physiological activities and functions of leaves, branches, trunks, and roots were significantly different in different growing seasons. In the non-growing season, non-structural carbohydrates and their components were significantly higher than those in the growing season. In the non-growing season, higher soluble sugars and NSC contents enabled the vegetation to resist cold temperature and other harsh conditions. The content of NSC in Abies georgei var. smithii increased with the increase of altitude, which supported the hypothesis “growth limitation” . Conclusion The growth of Abies georgei var. smithii is more restricted by plant nutrients than by carbon.

Results A total of 40 fungi strains (3 phyla and 11 genera) were isolated from E. ulmoides seeds, and the dominant genus was Aspergillus (30%); 142 bacterial strains (1 phylum, 6 genera) were isolated, of which Solibacillus was the dominant genus (47.18%). Through high-throughput sequencing, 141 fungal OTUs were obtained belonging to 6 phylum and 101 genera; 442 bacterial OTUs were obtained belonging to 24 phylum and 313 genera. At the genus level, the dominant fungi were Apiotrichum (31.28%) and Debaryomyces (26.07%); The dominant bacterial genera were Pseudomonas (16.66%) and Lactobacillus (9.68%). The results of functional annotation showed that fungi mainly degraded organic matter, promoted the growth of host plants and the absorption of soil nutrients by host, improved soil microbial community structure and Pathogen community. The bacteria mainly consisted of chemoheterotrophic, heterotrophic, fermentation. and nitrogen fixation bacteria. Conclusion E. ulmoides seeds carry a variety of probiotics and potential phytopathogens, which have important effects on plant growth and development. In addition, a number of beneficial functional bacteria were isolated in this study, which will provide microbial resources for the subsequent artificial control of seed microbiome to enhance plant health.

Abstract:
Objective To study the response of photosynthetic characteristics of different ecological tree species to light and nutrient supply for providing a scientific basis for plantation cultivation. Method The seedlings of Quercus acutissima, Phoebe bournei, and Schima superba were used. This study included two light intensities (natural full light and 45% full light) and three N:P ratios (N:P=5, N:P=15, N:P=45). We measured the changes of Photosynthetic fluorescence parameters, and seedlings’ height, seedlings’ ground diameter to study the changes of plant photosynthetic characteristics in different environments, and analyze the relationship between seedling growth and photosynthetic parameters. Result (1) Compared with the full light treatment, the shading treatment decreased the light saturation point (LSP) and the maximum net photosynthetic rate (Pnmax) of Q. acutissima, and increased the Pnmax of S. superba. but had no significant effect on Pnmax of P. bournei. Under the two light treatments, ertilization increased the LSP and light compensation point (LCP) of P. bournei and S. superba, but the effects of fertilization on the shading LSP and LCP of Q. acutissima were less. (2) Shading significantly reduced the quantum yield of regulated energy dissipation of PSⅡ [Y(NPQ) ] of Q. acutissima, P. bournei and S. superba, and significantly increased the photosynthetic electron transport rate (ETR). Under the full light treatments, fertilization generally increased the effective quantum yield of PSⅡ [Y(II) ] and ETR of Q. acutissima, P. bournei and S. superba, but decreased Y(NPQ) . Under the shading treatments, fertilization significantly increased Y(II) and ETR of P. bournei, while Y(II) and ETR of Q. acutissima increased significantly when the N:P supply ratio was 5. Y(II) and ETR of S. superba increased significantly when the N:P supply ratio was 15. (3) Compared with the full light treatment, shading significantly increased the contents of chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b, chlorophyll a + b and carotenoid of Q. acutissima, P. bournei and S. superba. Under the two light treatments, fertilization significantly increased the photosynthetic pigment content of Q. acutissima, S. superba and P. bournei (only full light treatment). (4) Regardless of light or shading, fertilization generally increased the relative growth rates of seedling’s height and ground diameter of the three tree species, and there was a positive correlation between the growth and photosynthetic pigment. Conclusion Photosynthetic characteristics and growth of Q. acutissima, P. bournei and S. superba are affected by the interaction of light and fertilization. The effect of nitrogen and phosphorus fertilization on seedling growth under different light intensities depends on nitrogen and phosphorus supply ratio and tree species.

Abstract:
: Objective To analyze the effect of PagWOX11/12a gene on the growth and development of poplar for further research on the regulation mechanism of this gene in woody plants. Method Bioinformatics methods and software were used to construct phylogenetic evolutionary tree, sequence alignment and biochemical characterization analysis. Tissue-specific expression patterns were analyzed by qRT-PCR. The phenotype of poplar after specifically suppressed the expression of PagWOX11/12a was analyzed by using transgenic plant 35S::PagWOX11/12a-SRDX (DR). Result PagWOX11/12a gene could encode a protein with 255 amino acids, which was expressed in different tissues of 84K. The phenotypic analysis of DR transgenic plants showed that inhibiting the expression of this gene could reduce the length of phloem cells, pith cells and xylem fiber cells, inhibit internode elongation, and significantly reduced plant height compared with non-transgenic 84K. Conclusion PagWOX11/12a gene participates in regulating the height growth of poplar by affecting the elongation of internodes. This study provides a reference for further revealing the regulatory mechanism of PagWOX11/12a gene involved in the growth and development of poplar.

Abstract:
Objective To reveal the niche characteristics of shrub community population in the burned areas of Spruce-fir forest in different years on the northeast edge of Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau. Method Levins and Shannon Wiener niche breadth index, Pianka and Schoener niche overlap index were used to calculate the niche breadth and niche overlap degree of population, and the specialized species and generalized species of community were divided. Result The results of Levins and Shannon Wiener niche breadth index of shrub species in burned and unburned forest land were basically the same, and there were differences in the niche breadth of the same species in burned and unburned forest land. There are three specialized species in the 5-years burned area, two specialized species and 1 generalized species in the 15-years burned area and one specialized species in unburned forest land. The proportion of species logarithms with severe niche overlap among species was 15-year-burned land>5-year-burned land>unfired forest land. The species logarithm proportion of general niche overlap was 5-years-burned land>15-yearly-burned land>unfired Woodland. And the proportion of species logarithm with less niche overlap was unburned forest land > 15 years burned area > 5 years burned area. Conclusion After severe fire disturbance in the Spruce-fir forest on the northeast edge of Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, the degree of niche overlap among species of shrub communities in burned areas of different years is constantly changing, while the degree of niche overlap among species in undergrowth of unburned forest land remains relatively low, and the community is in a positive succession stage.

Abstract:
Objective To study the change of stand structure with age and its hydrological influence, and provide a theoretical basis for forest vegetation construction and management in the semi-arid area, Liupan Mountains. Method The main plantation type -- Larix principis-rupprechtii (Larch) plantation was selected in Diediediegou small watershed in the semi-arid area, Liupan Mountains. Based on daily meteorological data from 1993—2002, both the coupled stand structure model and BROOK90, an ecohydrological model were applied to simulate the variation of stand structures (average tree height, diameter at breast height (DBH), canopy density and leaf area index (LAI)) with plantation age, and then its effects on each water balance component (interception, transpiration, soil evaporation and runoff) were obtained. Result The Larch plantation could be divided into rapid growth period (5~15 years old), slow growth period (15~40 years old) and stable period (over 40 years old) with the increase of age. During the rapid growth period, the average tree height, average DBH, canopy density and canopy LAI increased rapidly with the increase of age, with an average annual growth rate of 0.48 m·a−1, 0.54 cm·a−1, 0.03 and 0.19, respectively. During the slow growth period, the average stand tree height, DBH and canopy density increased slowly, while the LAI increased first and then decreased. But during the stable period, the stand structures did not change significantly. In the fast growth period, the average annual interception and transpiration increased rapidly with the increase of age, and the rate was 1.91 and 24.13 mm·a−1, respectively. Meanwhile, the average annual soil evaporation and water yield decreased rapidly with the increase of age, and the decrease rate was 10.58 and 14.88 mm·a−1, respectively. In the slow growth period, the change of average annual transpiration, soil evaporation and runoff with age slowed down, and tended to be stable when the age was 30 years. The average annual change rates were 0.62, −0.75 and −0.76 mm·a−1, respectively. Conclusion In the semi-arid area of Liupan Mountains, the stand structure of Larch plantations changes continuously when the stand age is less than 30 years, especially less than 15 years, which significantly affectes the eco-hydrological function. And when the stand age is over 30 years old, the stand structure is stable and the water balance components tend to be stable too, which indicates that it is no longer necessary to consider the influence of stand age in the integrated forest-water management.

The initial concentration of hygromycin for resistant callus screening was 5 mg·L−1 (about 7~10 days), and then the critical screening culture was carried out by gradually increasing the hygromycin screening concentration to 30 mg·L−1. the optimum concentration of cephalosporin was 300 mg·L−1. Finally, foreign gene was transferred into the callus by Agrobacterium mediated method, and PCR primers were designed for identification. A total of 16 resistant seedlings contained the target band, indicating that the target gene had been inserted into the L. cubeba genome, with a transformation rate of 0.67%. In addition, our research group obtained the resistant calli of multiple genes through this method. Southern detection showed that the target fragment had been inserted into the calli of L. cubeba. Conclusion The regeneration and genetic transformation system of L. cubeba has been preliminarily established, and the resistant calli of multiple genes have been obtained, which provides technical support for further gene function research and genetic improvement. The next step is to optimize the genetic transformation system and improve its transformation efficiency.

Abstract:
Objective To provide theoretical basis for the efficient cultivation of C. lanceolate, the effects of graphene on the growth, root morphology and nitrogen uptake and utilization of Cunninghamia lanceolata were investigated in this study. Method A pot experiment with four concentrations of graphene (0, 20, 25, 30 mg·L−1) was conducted in this study by using the superior clone of C. lanceolata seedlings ‘Yang 061’ to investigate the growth, root morphology, 15N distribution and utilization rate of C. lanceolata seedlings under various graphene treatments. Results The indexes of growth and root morphologies were maximum at 25 mg·L−1 graphene concentration except for stem weight and root volume, but no significant difference were observed among different treatments. The 15N utilization rate of seedlings was 25 mg·L−1>20 mg·L−1>30 mg·L−1>CK1, and the distribution of 15N in different organs of C. lanceolata seedlings was leaf > stems > roots. Correlation analysis results showed that a significantly positive correlation between roots 15N partition rate and seedlings 15N utilization rate with different growth indexes were observed except for root length, root volume, root 15N partition rate and root diameter. Conclusion A certain concentration of graphene is beneficial to the growth of C. lanceolata seedlings and can promote the absorption and utilization of N.

Abstract:
Objective To study the effects of different competition levels and topography on the canopy length and compare the forest layers, the crown ratio model considering competition and topographic (slope, slope aspect and slope position) variables of Pinus koraiensis plantation in eastern area of Liaoning province was developed. Method The crown ratio model was developed by incorporating competition index and topographic variable using re-parameterization and dummy variable methods. and the specific topographic variable expressing the largest contribution was selected. The effect of competition and topographic variable on the crown ratio was simulated. Result Compared with the basic model, the R2a for the finial model incorporating competition, topographic variable and forest layer increased by 0.113, RMSE decreased by 0.012. The contributions of competition, slope aspect and forest layer to the crown ratio model were 14.14%、2.25%、0.16%, respectively. The crown ratio decreased with the increase of D and increased with the increase of forest competition. With the increase of the competition, the crown ratio turned from negative growth to positive growth with tree height increasing gradually . The F test showed that there were significant differences in crown ratio between different slope aspects and forest layers, and the change rule was shady slope > semi-sunny slope > sunny slope and upper forest layer > lower forest layer. Conclusion Topography and forest competition factors significantly affect the crown ratio, and slope aspect is the most important topographic factor affecting the crown ratio of individual tree of Pinus koraiensis plantation. The crown ratio model based on topography and forest competition has high accuracy and provides a reference for the management and growth prediction of Pinus koraiensis plantation in eastern area of Liaoning Province.

Abstract:
Objective To study the response of radial growth of Larix griffithii Hoof to temperature and precipitation based on the annual ring core of L. griffithii collected in the Shergyla Mountain. Method The standard chronology was established by using the tree chronology method combined with TASP-Win and ARSTAN programs. Pearson and bootstrap calculation methods were used to analyze the correlation between ring width index and temperature and precipitation from 1961 to 2020. Result There were significant differences in radial growth before and after temperature fluctuation. Before the temperature fluctuation, the radial growth was positively correlated with the average temperature in January and June of the year and August of the previous year (P< 0.05). It was positively correlated with the average precipitation from September to October and December of the previous year and negatively correlated with that in August of the previous year. And It was significantly positively correlated with the relative humidity from January to December (P< 0.01). After the temperature fluctuation, the radial growth was negatively correlated with the average temperature from March to December and positively correlated with the precipitation in August and June of the previous year. Conclusion The climatic conditions in Southeast Tibet are extremely special. The uneven hydrothermal conditions caused by climate fluctuations is the main reason for the radial growth change of L griffithii. AThe short-term change of temperature in the non-growing season also has a significant indigenous impact on the radial growth of trees.

Abstract:
Objective To provide a typical reference in the aspect of height-to-diameter ratio of broad-leaved trees for the sustainable management of artificial broad-leaved forest, semi-natural broad-leaved forest and natural broad-leaved forest in mid-subtropical zone, the relationship between tree height-to-diameter ratio and DBH and tree height were revealed in each stratum of typical natural broad-leaved forests. Method In Jian’ou Wanmulin Provincial Nature Reserve, 50 m × 50 m plots were set up in 5 most typical natural broad-leaved forest in mid-subtropical zone respectively. Spearman rank correlation coefficient was used to analyze the correlation between tree height-to-diameter ratio and DBH and tree height in each stratum, and exponential function and hyperbola equation were chosen to fit the relationship between height-to-diameter ratio and DBH in each stratum. Results The variation range of the average value of the height-to-diameter ratio in each stratum was not large. The average height-to-diameter ratio of the stand in the 5 sample plots was 103.1. The mean height-to-diameter ratio in stratum Ⅲ(112.7) was the largest, followed by stratum Ⅱ (89.0) and stratum Ⅰ(66.9), as well as in the minimum and maximum values. The height-to-diameter ratio of each stratum showed a significant negative correlation with DHB and the correlation coefficient was high. The absolute value of correlation coefficient was the highest in stratum Ⅰ(0.896~0.961) and stratum Ⅱ(0.912~0.971), the middle in the stand(0.613~0.749), and the lowest in stratum Ⅲ(0.415~0.596).The relationship between tree height-to-diameter ratio and tree height in each stratum was complex and the absolute value of correlation coefficient was low (< 0.480). The stand showed extremely negative correlation, but the absolute value of correlation coefficient was low (0.283~0.458). The R2 of the tree height-to-diameter ratio and DBH in stratum Ⅰ and stratum Ⅱ fitted by exponential function were 0.852~0.906 and 0.830~0.914, respectively, while the R2 of the stand and stratum Ⅲ were 0.465~0.575 and 0.202~0.399, respectively. The R2 of the height-to-diameter ratio and DBH in stratum Ⅰ and stratum Ⅱ fitted by hyperbolic curve were 0.874~0.937 and 0.856~0.968, respectively, while the R2 of the stand and stratum Ⅲ were 0.387~0.536 and 0.186~0.350, respectively. Exponential function fitting stand and stratum Ⅰ relationship of DBH than height-to-diameter ratio of R2 was relatively high, and RMSE and AMR was relatively small. hyperbola from fitting relationship of DBH than height-to-diameter ratio stratum Ⅰ and stratum Ⅱ fitted by hyperbola equation had relatively high R2 and small RMSE and AMR was values. Conclusion The tree height/diameter ratio of typical natural broad-leaved forest in mid-subtropical zone varies with the stratum. The tree height/diameter ratio in the same stratum also varies with DBH. The height-to-diameter ratio and DBH in each stratum shows a very significant negative correlation and the correlation coefficient is high, and the curve fitting of the relationship is significant. Hyperbolic function can well describe the relationship between height-to-diameter ratio and DBH in the stratum Ⅰ and stratum Ⅱ, while exponential function is more suitable to describe the relationship between height-to-diameter ratio and DBH in the stand and the stratum Ⅲ. The relationship between tree height-to-diameter ratio and tree height in each stratum is complex and the correlation coefficient is low. In the typical natural broad-leaved forest of the mid-subtropical zone, the characteristics of tree height/diameter ratio can be expressed by the relationship curve between tree height to diameter and DBH of each stratum.

Abstract:
Objective To study the soil infiltration characteristics of four Caragana korshinskii forests in the loess hilly area of Inner Mongolia for providing a reference for reasonable local forest planting and vegetation restoration and construction. Method The cutting ring knife was used for sampling and analyzing soil physical and chemical properties in Caragana korshinskii and Populus davidiana × Caragana korshinskii, Armeniaca sibirica × Caragana korshinskii, Pinus tabuliformis × Caragana korshinskii forests. . The single ring soil column method was used to observe the undisturbed soil water infiltration, and the correlation between infiltration characteristics and soil physical and chemical properties was analyzed. Results The initial infiltration rate, steady infiltration rate, 5 h cumulative infiltration amount, and the rate of wetting front of the four forests were the largest in A. sibirica × C. korshinskii forest (8.60 mm · min−1, 1.05 mm · min−1, 279.83 mm, 2.5 mm · min−1), followed by P. davidiana × C. korshinskii (5.6 mm · min−1, 0.76 mm · min−1, 255.65 mm, 2.2 mm · min−1), P. tabuliformis × C. korshinskii (4.80 mm · min−1, 0.73 mm · min−1, 243.03 mm, 2.0 mm · min−1), C. korshinskii(3.16 mm·min−1, 0.53 mm·min−1, 178.64 mm, 3.4 mm·min−1). After infiltration, the soil saturated moisture content and field water holding capacity were shown as follows: A. sibirica × C. korshinskii > P. davidiana × C. korshinskii, P. tabuliformis × C. korshinskii > C. korshinskii. Soil bulk density and porosity were the main factors affecting the infiltration capacity and water status of the four woodlands. Conclusion Comparing with other forests, A. sibirica × C. korshinskii has better regulation and water conservation function, and can effectively reduce surface runoff and soil erosion.

Abstract:
Objective To improve regional site index model, the site index model with the random effects of site factors was developed. Method Based on the 360 samples with dominant height-age of Chinese fir in the hilly and plain area of Hunan Province, the quantification method I was used to select the site factors affecting the dominant height growth (P<0.05). The 8 commonly used models were used to develop the basic site index model, as well as the models considering the random effects of site factors and their combinations. The evaluation statistics including AIC, BIC, logLik and R2 were used to select the optimal random effect model. In addition, K-means clustering was used to divide site type groups for model applications. Results 1) The site factors including altitude, slope, aspect and soil type had significant impact on dominant height growth based on the quantitative method I. And soil type was the most important factor, following by altitude, slope aspect, and Slope. 2) The fitting accuracy of the 8 candidate basic models was low (R2=0.4243~0.5644). M4 (R2=0.5644) was selected the best basic model for developing the polymorphic site index curve. 3) Considering the influence of the site effect on the site index, the nonlinear mixed effects models with different site factors and their combination of random effects were developed. The mixed effects model with the random effects of site type performed the best (R2=0.8089). 4) The site types were divided into 11 site groups. The mixed model containing the site type groups improved the modeling accuracy (R2=0.8117). Conclusion The site index model with site mixed effect can significantly improve the site modeling accuracy of regional complex site types, and provide a reference and basis for regional forest site quality evaluation.

Abstract:
Objective To investigate the promotion of phosphorus uptake in Camellia oleifera seedlings by mycorrhizal fungi at different inorganic phosphorus levels, and provide a theoretical basis for the study of inoculation with mycorrhizal fungi to enhance phosphorus efficiency of C. oleifera seedlings. Method One-year old C. oleifera was used as the host plant, and young sets of Claroideogolmus etuicatum were inoculated with KH2PO4 (0, 10, 50, 100 mg·kg-1). The effects of inoculation with AM fungi and inorganic phosphorus on phosphorus uptake and grown soil phosphorus fraction of C. oleifera seedlings were investigated. Result Under the conditions of no (0 mg·kg-1), low (10 mg·kg-1), medium (50 mg·kg-1) and high (100 mg·kg-1) phosphorus application, the phosphorus content of mycorrhization C. oleifera seedlings was significantly higher than that of non- mycorrhization. The above-ground phosphorus content increased by 5.64%, 8.14%, 14.28% and 5.79%, respectively, and the phosphorus content of seedling root system increased by 12.85%, 20.01%, 19.63% and 18.09%, respectively. The effects of inoculation with AM fungal treatment, application of inorganic phosphorus treatment and their interaction on soil total phosphorus content, effective phosphorus content and organic phosphorus content were highly significant. Inoculation with C. etuicatum significantly reduced the content of four phosphorus forms, Al-P, Fe-P, Ca-P and O-P in the soil. Under low phosphorus conditions, inoculation of C. etuicatum significantly increased the expression of Pht1;1 gene in leaves and root systems of the seedlings; under medium and high phosphorus conditions, inoculation of C. etuicatum decreased the gene expression of Pht1;1 gene in leaves and root of C. oleifera seedlings. Conclusion AM fungi can alter phosphorus morphology in C. oleifera grown soil, promote the uptake efficiency of effective phosphorus in soil by plants, and participate in regulating the expression of Pht1;1 gene in C. oleifera. The results of this study provide a scientific basis for microbial fertilizer to improve soil phosphorus uptake efficiency of C. oleifera seedlings and reduce phosphorus fertilizer application, which promotes the healthy and sustainable development of C. oleifera industry in China.

Abstract:
Objective To provide insights into carrying out ecological regulation of new mixed forest, the physiological adaptation mechanism of Dendrolimus houi Lajonquiere to different host plants was analyzed based on the effects of different host plants on the growth, reproduction, detoxification enzyme and digestive enzyme activities of D. houi. Methods The developmental duration of the larvae and pupae as well as the fecundity of adult of D. houi were measured through indoor rearing in hots plants of Cryptomeria fortunei Hooibrenk, Platycladus orientalis (L.) Franco, Cupressus funebris Endl., Pinus yunnanensis Franch. and Pinus massoniana Lamb. The activities of detoxification enzymes (i. e. glutathione S-transferases (GSTs), cytochrome P450 (CYP450), and carboxylesterase (CarE)) and digestive enzymes (i. e. protease, amylase (AMS), and lipase (LPS)) in the 5th instar larvae of D. houi feeding on different host plants were also assayed. Results D. houi larvae feeding on C. fortunei, C. funebris, P. orientalis and P. yunnanensis had a complete life cycle, while the larvae feeding on P. massoniana only survived to the 5th instar and did not have a complete life cycle. At the same time, the larvae and pupae of D. houi feeding on C. fortunei and C. funebris had shorter developmental duration, heavier female pupae and more fecundity of adult compared with other host plants. The activities of GSTs and CYP450 in the 5th instar larvae of D. houi feeding on C. fortunei and C. funebris were significantly higher than those feeding on P. yunnanensis, P. orientalis and P. massoniana (P<0.05). Among the three digestive enzymes, the activities of protease in larvae of D. houi feeding on C. fortunei and C. funebris were relatively high. Conclusion Dendrolimus houi has better adaptability to Cryptomeria fortunei and Cupressus funebris than the other host plants, and detoxification enzymes and proteases within D. houi may be the key factors which affect their adaptability to Cryptomeria fortunei and Cupressus funebris.

Abstract:
Objective To excavate high-quality germplasm resources and provide solid foundation for the selection and breeding of superior and new varieties in the future, it is necessary to analyze the phenotypic traits variation pattern of E. mollis. Method 100 10-year-old seedlings were selected from the provincial nature reserve of E. mollis located in Yicheng, Shanxi Province. A trait list of E. mollis was compiled according to the quantitative classification method. Various methods were used to reveal the variation pattern of E. mollis germplasm resources. Results The phenotypic variation of E. mollis ranged from 9.72% to 37.66%, with an average coefficient variation value of 22.26%. H’ of the phenotypic traits varied between 1.056 and 2.213. Correlation analysis showed that phenotypic traits of a single organ correlated significantly with each other, phenotypic traits from different organs showed no correlation. However, the leaf length showed significant correlation with fruit traits. PCA result showed that the first 7 principal components contributed 79.053% to the total variation, and the contribution rate of each trait was scattered. Cluster analysis based on phenotypic traits of fruit showed that all the individuals can be divided into 3 groups at the coefficient distance of 10 and differences among these 3 groups were significant. PCA analysis of phenotypic traits of fruit indicated that yield and kernel related traits can be chosen as the primary target in future E. mollis breeding. Therefore, individual 10, 17, 33, 37, 56 and 74 were chosen as the primary material for future breeding of superior and new varieties of E. mollis. Conclusion The phenotypic traits variation pattern of E. mollis plantation in Shanxi Province was high, different materials can be chosen based on various breeding targets.

Abstract:
Objective To clarify the taxonomic status of AMF spores under the oak forest in the subalpine belt of the Hengduan Mountains. Method Six samples of alpine oak root enclosures and root systems were selected from different parts of the subalpine belt of the Hengduan Mountains, and AMF spores in the soil were selected by wet sieving sedimentation method. AMF-specific primers were used to amplify the 18SrRNA gene of the ITS region, which was identified by combining morphological and molecular biological means, and the phylogenetic relationships were constructed to infer their affinities. Result The results showed that AMF spores and root cloning consequences of alpine oak in Sichuan and Tibet were the genus Paraglomus. And the consequence of AMF cloning on the root surface and the AMF in soil of alpine oak in Shangri-La showed that AMF could exist in the inter-roots of alpine oak plants. These AMF were the genus Glomus. In addition, only one AMF was found in the root envelope and inter-root soil of alpine oak forest in different sampling sites, suggesting that AMF might have a symbiotic relationship with alpine oak. Aniline blue pigment staining result showed obvious arbuscular and vesicle structures in roots. In addition, the AMF spores under the Alpine oak forest differentiated during the evolution and were between the taxonomic status of Paraglomus and Glomus, and there were differences in AMF in Tibet, Sichuan and Shangri-La, Yunnan. Conclusion AMF generally exists in the pure understory root rhizosphere and inter-root soil of alpine oak in the subalpine belt of the Hengduan Mountains, which provides a theoretical reference for understanding the formation and evolution of AMF in the understory of alpine oak in the subalpine belt of the Hengduan Mountains

Abstract:
Objective To explore the physiological and molecular mechanism of saline-alkali tolerance in Catalpa bungei, we studied the influence of different saline-alkali stress on the growth, photosynthetic and physiological indicators of C. bungei seedlings combing with transcriptome sequencing. Methods Pot experiment was used to study the different responses of biomass, photosynthetic and physiological indicators of C. bungei seedlings to different saline-alkali stress. Illumina high-throughput sequence technology was used to sequence the transcriptome, and the effect of saline-alkali stress on transcriptional level was analyzed by bioinformatics. Results Under different saline-alkali stress, the damage degree of leaves was Na2CO3>mixed saline-alkali>NaCl. Net growth of plant height and stem diameter, fresh weight and dry weight of overground part and root, biomass, root-shoot ratio were all significantly suppressed with increasing saline-alkali concentration. But the growth stress index decreased with increasing concentration. Contents of MDA and relative conductivity both rose to varying degrees with increasing concentration. SOD enzymatic activity, contents of soluble sugar and Pro, contents of total chlorophyll and photosynthetic rate increased firstly and decreased then with increasing concentration. Transcriptome sequencing generated a total of 60.4Gb of raw data. Finally, we obtained 55 793 Unigenes after assembling, of which 29 534 (52.93%) Unigeneswere annotated. Through differentially expressed genes (DEGs) analysis, 1 779, 2 835 and 4 059 DEGs were screened from three comparison groups (CK vs NaCl, CK vs Na2CO3 and CK vs mixed saline-alkali) respectively. GO functional enrichment analysis of these DEGs indicated that they were significantly enriched in integral component of membrane, intrinsic component of membrane, catalytic activity, isoprenoid metabolic and biosynthetic process, oxidoreductase activity. KEGG functional enrichment analysis of these DEGs indicated that they were significantly enriched in phenylpropanoid biosynthesis, starch and sucrose metabolism, plant hormone signal transduction, terpenoid backbone biosynthesis and arginine biosynthesis. Moreover, the most abundant differentially expressed transcription factors (TFs) were bHLH, ERF, MYB-related, NAC, C2H2, WRKY, MYB and bZIP families. Conclusion C. bungei mainly resists from saline-alkali stress by accumulating contents of soluble sugars and Pro, improving SOD enzymatic activity and photosynthesis, but all of them show the phenomenon of "low promotion and high suppression", indicating that it has a certain threshold value. C. bungei common responses to saline-alkali stress by regulating biological processes and metabolic pathways including component of membrane, catalytic activity, isoprenoid metabolic and biosynthetic process, phenylpropanoid biosynthesis, starch and sucrose metabolism, plant hormone signal transduction, and interacting with TFs. This study provides a scientific theoretical basis for deeply studying the physiological and molecular mechanisms of saline-alkali tolerance in C. bungei.

Abstract:
Objective To understand the mechanism of food foraging below ground of Melanotus cribricollis larva which is the dominant and most destructive soil-dwelling insect of bamboo shoots in south China and provide important basic information for the development of effective monitor and control techniques. Method We tested the orientation behavior of M. cribricollis larvae towards bamboo shoot and CO2-releasing capsules by using a dual-choice olfactometer. The volatiles emitted from Phyllostachys violascens shoot were tentatively identified by solid phase micro-extraction (SPME) coupled with GC-MS, and their relative content were determined as well. Result Both bamboo shoot and CO2 source could significantly induce the directional movement of the larvae of C. There was no significant difference in the larval behavior among different weights of bamboo shoots (P>0.05), whiel larval orientation behavior was significantly correlated with CO2 concentration (P<0.05). Between bamboo and CO2-releasing capsules, wireworms preferred significantly to the bamboo shoot (P<0.05). A total of 17 compounds emitted from Ph. violascens shoot were tentatively identified. The higher relative contents were olefins (66.62%) and sesquiterpenes (27.98%), and the sesquiterpene compound with the highest content was α-humulene. Conclusion M. cribricollis larvae shows significant stronger orientation towards bamboo shoot and CO2 source, and prefers bamboo shoot significantly. Compared with CO2 source, the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from bamboo shoot show to be more effective in food foraging of bamboo shoot wireworm. In addition, 7 terpene compounds with potential attraction to wireworms are identified in this study, which provids important basic information for the development of attract-and-kill formulations for the control of wireworms.

Abstract:
Objective To explore the responses of soil active organic carbon pool and CPMI to different control measures in rocky desertification area and provide the scientific basis for rational land use and rocky desertification ecological management in karst area. Method Three typical measures for controlling rocky desertification in karst including Nested terrace(NL), Fish scale pit(FSP), and terrace(TR) were compared with CK (natural slope soils) . The response of soil active carbon and carbon pool management index under different control measures was studied. Result The soil active organic carbon content and storage under different rocky desertification control measures showed a trend of the highest FSP, followed by the NL, and the lowest TR. The contents of EOC, DOC and pool storage showed that FSP were significantly higher than the other measures. The CPMI in FSP were all higher than NL and TR. The CPMI showed that the fish scale pit measure was greater than the other two rocky desertification control measures. The control measures improved the quality of the topsoil in the karst area.. Conclusion This study suggests that different rocky desertification control can significantly affect the active organic carbon in karst. FSP is more beneficial to the active SOC fraction accumulation and the quality of carbon pool than other measures. FSP can be used as a priority measure for the ecological restoration of karst rocky desertification.

Method In this study, walnut whole genome sequencing data were used as experimental materials, and the whole genome microsatellites were screened and analyzed by bioinformatics software MISA. Primer 3.0 was employed to design monomorphic SSR primers. SSR primers were evaluated by electronic PCR and some of the monomorphic ones were synthesized randomly to detect their usefulness and verify the effectiveness of the method. Result (1) A total of 357 629 SSR loci were identified in the walnut genome, with a distribution density of 662.28 SSRs/MB. The dominant repeat units were mainly A/T bases, showing significant base preference. These SSR sequences were mainly short sequences with a length of 10~30 bp, up to more than 95.00%. The number of SSR loci on different chromosomes varied greatly. Among them, the number of SSR loci on chr1 chromosome was the largest, and the numer of SSR loci on chromosome 16 was the least. The number and type of SSRs showed positively correlated with chromosome sequence length. Most of the 644 rare SSR units were hexa-nucleotides. (2) Based on cluster analysis, all the 16 chromosomes could be divided into 4 groups, of which the number of members in group 4 was the most (11), and there was only chromosome 10 in group 1. In general, chromosome 10 forms a main branch, indicating that it may have experienced a relatively conservative evolutionary history. (3) 303 009 pairs of SSR primers were designed by using the conservative sequence flanking the SSR locus. And then 32 pairs of monomorphic primers clarified by electronic PCR were randomly screened and synthesized for wet PCR experiments, of which 30 pairs (93.75%) were amplified in 6 walnut varieties. The PCR amplification results of 28 pairs (87.50%) were consistent with that of electronic PCR. Conclusion In this study, SSR loci in different chromosome sequences of ‘Zhongmucha-1’ walnut reference genome are identified. Their amounts and repeat types are found to be highly variable among different chromosome sequences and show a highly significant positive correlation with chromosome length. Mono-nucleotide repeat SSRs are the most common type. A novel protocol combining electronic PCR and traditional screening methods are established and validated, which provide an effective strategy for the personalized and rapid development of walnut SSR primers. The developed 28 pairs of monomorphic primers can provide scientific basis for “Illegitimacy Testing” of hybrid offspring in molecular marker assisted breeding.

Abstract:
Objective To provide a theoretical basis for the conservation and propagation of the two species of Russula and the realization of artificial cultivation, the mycosphere soil microbial communities of Russula rosea and Russula griseocarnosa was analyzed, and the soil microorganisms that promoting the growth of the two species of Russula were screened. Method The community structure of mycosphere and bulk soil microorganisms (fungi and bacteria) of two species of Russula were analyzed by Illumina MiSeq sequencing technology, and evaluated comprehensively based on soil physicochemical property. Result The mycosphere soil microorganisms of the two species of Russula were slightly different. The dominant mycosphere soil microorganisms of R. rosea were Acidothermus, Mycobacterium, Reyranella, Ktedonobacter, Rhodanobacter and Oidiodendron, while the dominant mycosphere soil microorganisms of R. griseocarnosa were Variibacter, Bryobacter, Blastochloris, Cladophialophora, Paecilomyces and Arthrinium. Bacteria (Variibacter, Candidatus_Solibacter, Sorangium, Mycobacterium, Singulisphaera, Isosphaera, Bdellovibrio and Paenibacillus) and fungi (Trichoderma, Penicillium, and Hypomyces) were the common growth promoting microbes of Russula rosea and R. griseocarnosa. pH was the key factor affecting mycosphere soil microorganisms. Conclusion The two species of Russula can specifically select soil microorganisms that are beneficial to their growth according to their growth needs and form different microbial community structures. The mycosphere mycorrhizal auxiliary bacteria that were screened out in this study can provide theoretical basis for the preparation of special microbial fertilizer and artificial propagation promotion of Russula, which has great promotion for the sustainable utilization of Russula, the expansion of understory edible fungi scale and the improvement of economic benefits.

Abstract:
Objective To provide theoretical basis for vegetation restoration in Taihang Mountain, the study discussed different adaptation strategies of Quercus variabilis, Robinia pseudoacacia and Platycladus orientalis to drought from perspective of hydraulic architecture. Method Based on Quercus variabilis (38-year-old), Robinia pseudoacacia (42-year-old) and Platycladus orientalis (30-year-old) in Taihang Mountain, Native sapwood specific hydraulic conductivity (Ks) and maximum specific hydraulic conductivity (Ksmax) of perennial stems were measured by using a Pipette. Percent loss of hydraulic conductivity (PLC) of Quercus variabilis and Robinia pseudoacacia were measured by flushing method, and PLC of Platycladus orientalis was measured by vacuum method. Wood anatomy was measured by using optical microscope and scanning electron microscope technology. Result (1) The mean vessel diameter (Dv), hydraulic weighted vessel diameter (Dh) and aperture fraction (Fap), number of pits per unit area of vessel wall (Np), total pit area per vessel area (Fa) of Quercus variabilis and Robinia pseudoacacia were all significant higher than those of Platycladus orientalis. Ks and PLC of the former two deciduous tree species were therefore significantly higher than those of Platycladus orientalis; (2) The Dv, Dh, surface area of inter-vessel pit membranes (Ap), area of single pit aperture (Aap), Fap, Np and Fa of Robinia pseudoacacia were significantly higher than those of Quercus variabilis. However, PLC of Robinia pseudoacacia was significantly lower than that of Quercus variabilis, which might be due to the fact that the pit chamber and pit aperture of Robinia pseudoacacia had punctate and dentate vestures, which enhanced resistance to drought induced cavitation. (3) The \begin{document}$ {A}_{\mathrm{a}\mathrm{p}} $\end{document}, Fa and Fap Increased with the increase in the diameter of the xylem vessels of the three tree species. Conclusion Quercus variabilis and Robinia pseudoacacia have high xylem water transport efficiency, which indicates that they employ fast growth strategy. While Platycladus orientalis adopts conservative resource acquisition strategy with lower xylem water transports efficiency. The xylem vessels and pit structures synergistically affect xylem water transport efficiency and resistance to drought-induced cavitation, and xylem anatomy is an important trait determining the adaptation strategies of different tree species to arid environments.

Abstract:
Objective Litter is the main source of carbon and nitrogen in forest soils. The effect of litter decomposition on soil carbon and nitrogen by leaching was studied through analyzing the changes of dissolved carbon and nitrogen in litter or soil leaching solution, for exploring the relationship between litter decomposition and soil carbon and nitrogen. Method Soil and litter in broad-leaved and coniferous forests were collected from subtropical forests. Six treatments were set, including litter, soil, litter + soil, nitrogen + litter, nitrogen + soil, and litter + soil + nitrogen. Three replicates were set for each treatment. The nitrogen addition amount was 120mg NH4 + -N·kg−1 soil. The amount of litter added in coniferous and broad-leaved forests was 12.1 g·kg−1 and 19.7 g·kg−1, respectively. The litter was placed on the surface of soil or quartzite, and the soil moisture was controlled at 60% water-holding capacity. An incubation experiment was carried out with nitrogen addition by leaching to simulate nitrogen deposition in a dark incubator at 25 ℃ for 220 days. During the incubation period, the nitrogen solution leached in 5 times with different nitrogen amounts, each with 110 mL of solution (80, 10, 10, 10, 10 mg NH4 + -N in sequence according to the number of leaching times), and the leaching solution was collected and measured.. In addition, the dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and nitrogen (DON), and NH4 + -N and NO3--N in the leaching solution were also measured. Result The results showed that the litter leaching solution had lower inorganic nitrogen and DON, and higher DOC. Litter addition significantly reduced the NO3--N by 22.6% and 29.9% in the coniferous forest and broad-leaved forest soil leaching solution, respectively and increased the DOC by 181.4% in the coniferous forest soil leaching solution. However, litter addition significantly decreased the DON by 39.2% in the broad-leaved forest soil leaching solution and MBN by 53.2% in the broad-leaved forest soil. Under nitrogen addition, the interception of added nitrogen by litter was less, and the interception of litter in broad-leaved forest litter was higher than that in coniferous forest. Litter input to soil by leaching decreased DOC, while DON increased. Nitrogen addition increased soil leaching inorganic nitrogen and coniferous forest soil leaching solution DON, but the effect of litter on reducing soil nitrogen leaching was not weakened by nitrogen addition. Conclusion The litter slows down the negative impact of soil NO3--N output on water environment. Nitrogen addition can affect soil nitrogen changes by altering the output of DOC and DON in broad-leaved and coniferous forest litters.

Abstract:
Objective To explore the response of leaf anatomy and leaf photosynthetic physiology to long-term drought and analyze the relationship between leaf anatomy and leaf photosynthetic physiology under long-term drought conditions. Method We conducted a simulated drought experiment by reducing the throughfall in the forest and measured the leaf gas exchange, chlorophyll fluorescence, leaf nutrient (N, P) and leaf anatomy of the two typical tree species (Pinus massoniana Lamb. and Castanopsis hystrix Miq.) in subtropical China at the 8th year after rainfall reduction. Results (1) Significant differences were observed in leaf anatomy between P. massoniana and C. hystrix in response to throughfall reduction; the upper and lower epidermis, leaf thickness and stomatal density of P. massoniana needles increased significantly. However, the thickness of the upper epidermis of the leaves of C. hystrix increased significantly, and the thickness of the spongy tissue decreased significantly. (2) No significant differences were observed in the gas exchange parameters (net photosynthetic rate Pn, stomatal conductance Gs, transpiration rate Tr), chlorophyll fluorescence parameters (photosystem II maximum photochemical efficiency Fv/Fm, actual photochemical efficiency ΦPSII, apparent electron transfer rate ETR) and leaf nutrient contents of both species after 8 years of throughfall reduction. (3) Compared with P. massoniana, the stomatal limitation (Ls) of the C. hystrix was larger and thewater use efficiency (WUE) was higher, especially in the dry season. Conclusion There are differences in the strategies of P. massoniana and C. hystrix to cope with drought stress. P. massoniana responds to drought by adjusting leaf anatomy to produce xeromorphic needles, while C. hystrix is more inclined to adjust stomata (Ls) and improve water use efficiency (WUE) to adapt to drought.

Abstract:
Objective The role of MYB transcription factor family in pigment formation of yellow Paeonia delavayi flowers was analyzed to provide candidate genes for color improvement and molecular breeding of tree peony. Method In this study, members of MYB gene family of P. delavayi were identified and classified based on the transcriptome data of petals. One member of R2R3-MYBs, PdMYB2, was selected as a candidate gene according to phylogenetic tree, homologous sequence alignment and gene differential expression analysis. The function of PdMYB2 was analyzed by subcellular localization, qRT-PCR, transient overexpression, transgenic tobacco and LC-MS/MS. Result A total of 64 MYB genes were identified, including 25 R2R3-MYBs, one R1R2R3-MYBs, two 4R-MYBs and 36 members of MYB-related. The PdMYB2 was found to express in the nucleus and cytoplasm. Overexpression of PdMYB2 in tobacco increased anthocyanin accumulation and up-regulated the expression of anthocyanin-related structural genes NtCHS and NtCHI in petals and leaves. Conclusion PdMYB2 plays a positive regulatory role in the flavonoid biosynthesis pathway, which can promote the accumulation of anthocyanins and increase the expression of structural genes in the flavonoid pathway.

Abstract:
Objective To understand the mixed litters decomposition characteristics of Pinus massoniana and native broad-leaved trees, and the relationship between the mass loss rate of mixed litter with the species and proportion of broad-leaved litter. Method Based on the leaf litter of Pinus massoniana Lamb.(P), Cinnamomum camphora Presl.(C), Sassafras tzumu Hemsl.(S) and Toona sinensis Roem.(T), we conducted a two-year field needle-width mixed decomposition experiment of litter bags to study the mass loss of the pure litter of the above four tree species and their mixed litter, i.e., combining needles of one conifer with leaves of one, two or three broad-leaved species (i.e., PC, PS, PT, PSC, PST, PCT and PSCT, respectively), as well as including various ratios of these mixed litters in each treatment. There was a total of 35 treatments, including 31 mixed and 4 pure litter treatments. Result After two years of decomposition, the combinations of PT, PC, PCT, PST and PSCT had higher mass loss rates of than PS and PSC. The mass loss rate of leaf litters generally showed a synergistic effect and it increased from the 6th to 18th month, and then declined thereafter. It was the highest (67.74%) at the 18th month of decomposition. Compared with other mixed litters, the mass loss rate of PT64, PCT721 and PSCT7111 showed a strong synergistic effect in 4 incubation periods. The results of regression analysis showed that the decomposition coefficient k and mixing effect were negatively correlated with the initial contents of total phenolic, lignin, cellulose, the ratios of C/N, C/P, lignin/N, and lignin/P. In contrast, they were positively correlated with the initial contents of N and P. Conclusion Our results show that mixed litters with 30%-40% broad-leaved species, especially with the litter of T. sinensis, may benefit the litter mass loss of P. massoniana and promote the nutrient return to forest soils.

Abstract:
Objective To reveal the response of suitable distribution of Prunus pedunculata to climate change. Method Based on the field investigation, MaxEnt and ArcGIS software were used to predict the change of suitable distribution area of Prunus pedunculata in the future climate scenario. Results The suitable distribution region of Prunus pedunculata was mainly concentrated in China, Mongolia and Russia, and the distribution area located in 97.23°~122.62° E and 35.49°~54.91° N. Under the reference climate (1970−2000) scenario, the medium and high suitable distribution area are mainly located in China. Seasonality Precipitation (bio15, Coefficient of Variation) was the climate variable with the highest score in the prediction process. Under the four future(2021−2100)climate scenarios (SSP1-2.6, SSP2-4.5, SSP3-7.0 and SSP5-8.5), the geometric center of the suitable distribution area would move to the northwest. In the scenario of increased emissions, the average migration rate of geometric centers increased. Conclusion Seasonality Precipitation (bio15) is the most critical variable to limit the distribution of Prunus pedunculata. The suitable distribution area of Prunus pedunculata trends to migrate to the northwest. Under the high emission scenario, the change of the suitable distribution region is more active than the low emission scenario.

Abstract:
Objective In order to select superior families and individual plants which is suitable for planting in Nanjing and surrounding areas for providing a theoretical basis for the oriented silviculture of Cyclocarya paliurus plantations. Method The 3.5-year old germplasm resources of C. paliurus trees were comprehensively evaluated in this study. The 31 families of C. paliurus trees were used as test materials to determine the traits of growth and the leaf contents of total flavonoid, triterpenoid, and polyphenol. And cluster analysis and entropy method were used to screen superior families and individual trees based on the variations in traits. Results Significant variations were observed in tree height, diameter at the base, and the leaf contents of total flavonoid, triterpenoid and polyphenol among different families. Hierarchical cluster analysis showed that the 31 families of C. paliurus were classified into four distinct groups. The C. paliurus families in cluster 1, cluster 2 and cluster 3 could be recommended as the families for high accumulation of total triterpenoid, total polyphenol, and total flavonoid, respectively. In contrast, the families in cluster 4 showed poor performance in all measured metabolites. Seven superior families (GXJZS7#、GZSQ12#、GXLS26#、HNYS2#、AHQLF13#、SCMC31# and GXJZS1#) of C. paliurus were preliminary selected for the accumulation of target secondary metabolites using entropy method. Within the seven superior families, all the trees were further assessed, and eleven superior individuals were selected. Conclusion There are significant variations in growth and leaf secondary metabolites among the tested germplasm resources, showing a great potential for the selecting and breeding of C. paliurus. Based on the comprehensive assessment, seven superior families and eleven excellent individuals are selected for further test and future application.

Abstract:
Objective To analyze the phenotypic variation of X. sorbifolium, and provide useful information for genetic improvement. Method Thirty-five phenotypic traits among 37 germplasms were analyzed by variance analysis, principal component analysis (PCA), and cluster analysis. Result Large variation and rich phenotypic diversity were found among and within germplasms of X. sorbifolium. The average coefficient of variation for 35 traits of 37 germplasm resources was 25.49%, and the variation range was12.80% to 63.25%. the variation of branch traits was the largest (45.51%) , followed by inflorescence traits (31.01%) , fruit traits (24.67%), flower traits (24.35%), seed traits (21.82%), and leaf traits (21.45%). The mean phenotypic differentiation coefficient was 80.52%, indicating that the variation among germplasm resources was the main source of phenotypic variation. The cumulative contribution rate of the first nine main principal components reached 80.333%. The 37 germplasms were classified into two main groups and six subgroups according to their characteristics by Ward’s method and reasonable utilization of each subgroup were suggested. Conclusion The genetic variation of phenotypic traits of X. sorbifolium is abundant, among which the variation range of inflorescence, fruit and flower traits is larger than that of leaves and seeds. It provides useful information for the genetic improvement, preservation, and evaluation of X. sorbifolium germplasms.

Abstract:
Objective Stand density is an important index to reflect the number and competition in a stand. It plays a critical role in stand growth models. It is of great significance to analyze the application value of stand density index in stand volume growth model for accurate prediction. Method Based on the 28 years continuous observation data of the spacing trials of Chinese fir (Cunninghamia lanceolata) plantation in Shaowu, Fujian Province, the annual growth model of stand volume of Chinese fir including five different density indices respectively were developed based on the variable rate method, as well as the model without stand density index. Result The R2 values of the models including density indices were all larger than 0.979, and the model performance was higher than that of the model without density index. Among the five models including stand density indices, the model including living number of trees per ha (N) had the largest value of R2, followed by the model with RS density. However, the two models are not feasible because of the parameter estimates of stand density index were not significant. The R2 values of all models from high to low were: stand volume model including N (0.979 9), relative spacing RS (0.979 9), stand density index SDI (0.979 4), dominant high nutrient area ratio Z (0.979 3), Nilson density index model (0.979 0) and without density index (0.972 8). Conclusion Accounting for significance of the parameter estimate, the model with stand density index SDI performed the best in the stand volume model of Chinese fir. In addition, stand volume in stands of planting density (1 667 ~ 3 333 trees·hm-2) was larger than the denser stands (5 000 ~ 10 000 trees·hm-2).

Abstract:
Objective To investigate and analyze the host species of bacterial canker of Populus × euramericana, the disease-resistant varieties and the possible disease-resistant substances they contain. Method The host of the pathogen and the resistant varieties were determined by field investigation and inoculation tests. The content of active substances in the bark of disease-resistant and susceptible varieties was analyzed by HPLC. Result The hosts of bacterial pathogen of P. × euramericana canker are P. deltoides, P. × euramericana and Salix matsudana. P. × euramericana cl. 'Zhonglin 46', P. deltoides cl. '2025', P. × euramericana cv. '2001', P. deltoides cl '313', P. deltoides 'Zhonghe-1' and P. deltoides '16-09' were highly susceptible to the bark canker disease; P. × euramericana 'Yukang 1' and P. deltoides '16-10' were highly resistant varieties, P. deltoides '131', P. deltoides '03-59', P. deltoides '02-212' and P. deltoides '03-34' were resistant varieties. Hybrid willows and Salix babylonica are resistant to the pathogen, and Salix × aureo-pendula can be affected, but do not cause serious disease. The HPLC analysis showed that the contents of catechol, benzoic acid and chlorogenic acid in the bark of resistant and highly susceptible poplar varieties were significantly different. The catechol and catechin increased when the hosts were infected by Lonsdalea populi. Conclusion In this study, the host species of bacterial canker of P. × euramericana are determined, and resistant and highly susceptible poplar varieties are screened. It is showed the catechol and catechin are important compound for host to defense the pathogen infection. The results will be helpful to the control of the bacterial disease of poplar.

Abstract:
Objective To understand the effect of litter of Castanopsis kawakamii natural forest on the competitive intensity of regeneration of Pinus massoniana. Method The allelopathic effects of litter extract of natural forest with different concentration and decomposition degree on seed germination and radicle growth of P. massoniana were studied. Result (1) The main factor affecting the germination of P. massoniana seeds was the degree of litter decomposition. Compared with the blank control, the litter of undecomposed layer and fully decomposed layer had no significant effect on the germination of P. massoniana seeds; the semi-decomposed layer inhibited the germination rate and germination index and promoted the germination potential. (2) The main factors affecting the growth of radicle were the concentration and action time of litter extract, and the effect of undecomposed layer on the whole radicle growth period of P. massoniana seeds was enhanced with the decrease of concentration, but increased with the decrease of concentration, and the promoting effect was the strongest at the concentration of 1 ≤ 100, and the effect of semi-decomposition layer was promoted by low concentration and high concentration, and the intermediate concentration was inhibited by the undecomposed layer. The fully decomposition layer showed promoting effect as a whole, and the promoting effect decreased with the decrease of concentration. (3) Correspondence analysis showed that different decomposition degree-concentration had no significant effect on seed germination of P. massoniana, but had significant correlation with radicle growth. Conclusion The result proves that the litter extract of different decomposition degree has a weak promoting or inhibiting effect on the seed germination of P. massoniana, promotes the growth of radicle at low concentration, and promotes the regeneration of P. massoniana, which will intensify the interspecific competition in the forest, and lead to the inhibition of the natural regeneration of C. kawakamii.

Abstract:
Objective To understand the genetic mechanism underlying multiple-year growth in Eucalyptus urophylla × E. tereticornis crosses and provide reliable support for determining the early selection age in large-diameter-timber variety breeding. Method For 13- and 16-year-old tree height, breast-high diameter and volume of 59 crosses derived from an incomplete factorial mating between 10 E. urophylla females and 10 E. tereticornis males, a mixed linear model was used to estimate the variance components of female, male, and female × male interaction effects and calculate the narrow-sense heritability. Phenotypic and additive genetic correlations with earlier growth and 10-year-old wood properties were also analyzed. Genetic correlations and principal components regression (PCR) analysis were used to estimate early selection age for growth traits. Result Overall growth of crosses at ages 13 and 16 was better than the maternal open-pollinated families, and there were one cross and 47 individuals qualified for the large-diameter-timber criterion ≥28 cm. For all the three growth traits at both ages, the variance components of female, male, and female × male interaction were all significant, only significant for volume, and only significant for 13-year-old height, respectively. It indicated that the effect of female was larger than male. Narrow-sense heritability ranged from 0.17 to 0.23, being moderate to low levels of genetic control. Phenotypic and additive genetic correlations of 16-year-old height, diameter and volume with earlier (age of 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, 4, 7.5,10 and 13 years) counterparts were all positively significant except for 1.5-year-old volume, and the additive genetic correlations for 2.5 and higher years were notably stable. PCR analysis showed that 2.5-year-old growth could explain 73.9%, 71.9% and 66.2% of phenotypic variation in 16-year-old height, diameter and volume, respectively. Growth traits at both ages were significantly genetically correlated with 10-year-old wood basic density (positive) and lignin content (negative, except H16). Conclusion Certain degree of growth heterosis is present at ages 13 and 16 in E. urophylla × E. tereticornis crosses, indicating the potential of selection for large-diameter-timber varieties. Female effects on growth are consistently significant while male effect on volume is significant, demonstrating the necessity of selection of female and male parents in hybrid breeding. Both significant correlations between 16-year-old and earlier growth and around 70.0% of 16-year-old phenotypic variation explained by 2.5-year-old growth suggested the practical age of early selection at 2.5 years. Significant correlations of growth with 10-year-old wood basic density and lignin content imply the feasibility of indirect selection.

Abstract:
Objective Exploring the composition and diversity of the fruit endophytic fungi community is the basis for understanding the functions and mechanisms of fruit healthy microbiome. Method The diversity and composition of endophytic fungal communities in healthy fruit and its kernel (cotyledon) and shell (including seedcoat) parts of six chestnut cultivars were analyzed using high-throughput sequencing technology and traditional tissue isolation methods. Result A total of 3,229,205 high-quality sequences were generated from 36 samples of fruits and 2 tissues of six cultivars, and 1,557 fungal OTUs were annotated, belonging to 10 phyla, 38 classes, 97 orders, 203 families, and 350 genera. In chestnut fruit, Ascomycota (average relative abundance 80.40%) had the highest abundance, followed by Basidiomycota (average relative abundance 7.70%), and the dominant class were Sordariomycetes (average relative abundance 43.00%) and Saccharomycetes (average relative abundance 15.10%). The shared fungal taxa among species was enriched in Dothideomycetes with abundance >90%. Among chestnut fruit varieties, Ascomycota was also the most abundant group in each variety, with a relative abundance of 57.96%~90.15%, followed by Basidiomycota(3.28%~23.71%); At the class level, the dominant groups changed. The relative abundance of Saccharomycetes fungi (39.21%) was the highest in Maobanhong varieties, while Sordariomycetes fungi were the most abundant group (29.47%~59.56%) among the other five chestnut cultivars. Among the fruit tissues, the kernel tissue had higher unique fungal diversities than the shell, and the unique dominant groups of kernel tissue were all Basidiomycetes, especially the Russulales of Tremellomycetes. LEfSe analysis showed that there were significant differences in community composition or populations in the shell and kernel tissue, with Fusarium, Metschnikowia, Meyerozyma, and Debaryomyces fungi having significant dominance in kernel tissue. A total of 2346 effective strains were obtained by artificial culturable method, which belonged to Ascomycetes, Basidiomycetes and Mucoromycota. Except for yeasts that need special medium to be screened, the dominant fungal groups on fruits and tissues obtained by artificial culturing methods were similar to the results of high-throughput sequencing technology in terms of community composition and abundance. Conclusion Chestnut fruit has abundant endophytic fungal community composition and population diversity dominated by Sordariomycetes and Saccharomycetes, but the community-building species are mainly from Dothieomycetes. The endophytic fungal community composition is significantly different among chestnut fruit cultivars. Chestnut kernel has a richer diversity of exclusive endophytic fungi than shell part. There is a obvious differentiation on the composition of endophytic fungal community between chestnut kernel and shell tissue. This paper is the first systematic report on the compositional structure of endophytic fungi microbiota in chestnut fruit, which provides a basis for using chestnut healthy microbiome to prevent and control fruit diseases and to understand the nut fruit microbiome.

Abstract:
Objective To reveal the response of leave and fine root functional traits of 10-year-old Cunninghamia lanceolate plantation to soil phosphorus (P) addition so as to provide scientific basis for its productivity improvement. Method Six treatment of P0 (control), P1, P2, P3, P4 and P5 were set up in the 10-year-old C. lanceolate plantations. Soil P addition amount was 0, 60, 120, 180, 240 and 300 kg·hm−2·a−1 respectively, and simulated P deposition experiment was carried out for three years to analyze changes of functional traits, phenotypic plasticity index (PI), coefficient of variation (CV) and the correlation between functional traits including leaf area (LA), specific leaf area (SLA), leaf tissue density (LTD), leaf dry matter content (LDMC), specific root length (SRL), specific root surface area (SRA), root tissue density (RTD). Result In the condition of soil P limitation, with the increase of P addition amount, LA, SLA, SRL and SRA of C. lanceolate increased firstly and then decreased, whereas LTDLDMCRTD decreased firstly and then increased. Under different soil P addition treatments, the average PI values of leave and fine root functional traits of C. lanceolate were 0.21 and 0.16 respectively; The range of CV was 3.9%-15.9%, which showed a weak variation; The LTD of C. lanceolate was negatively correlated with LA and SLA under P0 and P2 treatments (P < 0.01), and LTD was positively correlated with LDMC under P1 treatment (P < 0.05). SLA was positively correlated with LA under P0 and P3 treatment (P < 0.05), and SLA was negatively correlated with LDMC under P4 treatment (P < 0.01). The SRL of C. lanceolate was positively correlated with SRA under P0, P3, P4, and P5 treatments, and SRL was negatively correlated with RTD under P3 and P4 treatments (P < 0.01); RTD was negatively correlated with SRA under P0, P2, P3, P4, and P5 treatments (P < 0.01). Conclusion Cunninghaia lanceolata developed a survival strategy to cope with changes in soil P content by coordinating the coupling correlation between leaf and fine root functional traits. This research showed that appropriate P addition (P2, P3) was beneficial to soil nutrient absorption and growth of 10-year-old Chinese fir plantation.

Abstract:
Objective This study accurately identified the existing varieties and calculated genetic diversity in Longnan City, Gansu Province, which was the main olive producing area in China, and provided a reference for the introduction, domestication, breeding and utilization of olive germplasm resources in China. Method Identification and genetic diversity were analyzed for 110 individuals of 83 olive varieties collected from Longnan city using 13 SSR markers, and phenotypic diversity was analyzed with indicators such as leaf, fruit, and stone for 90 individuals of 68 varieties. And the clustering of varieties based on phenotypes was compared with that based on SSR markers. Result The phenotypic diversity indices for olive varieties from Longnan were 1.83 for quantitative traits and 0.79 for quality traits, respectively; SSR markers identified 78 different genotypes for all olives analyzed, with an observed heterozygosity of 0.683 and an expected heterozygosity of 0.754, respectively; all varieties could be divided into three groups, and the grouping of varieties were more or less related with their origin; most of the varieties bred and selected in China were closer to those originated from Italy; compared with those in the phenotypic-based cluster tree, different individuals of the same variety were more inclined to cluster together in the tree based on SSR genotypes. Conclusion In Longnan, 78 varieties with different genotypes were identified based on SSR markers, which shows a higher accuracy in variety identification and a clear kinship among varieties than that based on phenotypes. The phenotypic diversity and genetic diversity of olive in Longnan are high, and the introduced varieties are mainly from the western and central Mediterranean countries. Whereas the varieties bred and selected previously in China are more similar to varieties originated from Italy. To diversifying olive germplasm in Longnan, more varieties should be introduced and bred with varieties from different countries.

Method Anthocyanin components and contents of C. azalea, C. japonica 'Meili' and thirty-five hybrids were measured by high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with diode array detection (HPLC-DAD) and aultra-performance liquid chromatography-quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry (UPLC-Q-TOF-MS). Result Fourteen anthocyanin components were detected in C. azalea and the hybrids, eight of which were main anthocyanin components with high content, including cyanidin-3-O-(2-O-β-xylosyl)-β-galactoside (Cy3GaX), cyanidin-3-O-β-galactoside (Cy3Ga), cyanidin-3-O-(2-O-β-xylosyl)-β-glucoside (Cy3GX), cyanidin-3-O-β-glucoside(Cy3G), cyanidin-3-O-(6-O-(E)-p-coumaroyl)-β-galactoside(Cy3GaEpC), cyanidin-3-O-(2-O-β-xylosyl-6-O-(E)-p-coumaroyl)-β-galactoside (Cy3GaEpCX), cyanidin-3-O-(2-O-β-xylosyl-6-O-(E)-p-coumaroyl)-β-glucoside (Cy3GEpCX) and cyanidin-3-O-(6-O-(E)-p-coumaroyl)-β-glucoside (Cy3GEpC). The total amount of eight main anthocyanin of C.azalea was higher than that of C. japonica 'Meili', and that of hybrids have larger variation. The contents of Cy3GX and Cy3GaX in hybrids were lower than that of C. azalea, and contents of Cy3GEpCX and Cy3GaEpCX in hybrids were higher than that of C. azalea. The contents of Cy3G, Cy3Ga, Cy3GEpC and Cy3GaEpC in hybrids were basically in the middle of the parents. Conclusion The contents of anthocyanins with 2-O-β-xylosyl is higher than that of corresponding anthocyanins without 2-O-β-xylosyl, and the contents of anthocyanins with glucoside is higher than that of corresponding anthocyanins with galactoside. The main anthocyanin components of C. azalea are Cy3GX and Cy3GaX, and those of C. japonica 'Meili' are Cy3GEpC and Cy3G. The main components of hybrids are Cy3GX and Cy3GEpCX, followed by Cy3G and Cy3GEpC. Anthocyanins with 2-O-β-xylosyl in hybrids originate from C. azalea, and the proportion of anthocyanins with 2-O-β-xylosyl is higher than that of corresponding anthocyanins without 2-O-β-xylosyl, that indicates anthocyanins with 2-O-β-xylosyl has stronger genetic ability.

Abstract:
Objective To clarify the cytological and physiological mechanism of the incompatibility of distant hybridization between peony species, and provide theoretical and experimental basis for distant hybridization of peony. Method Using P. ostii ‘Feng Dan’ as the female parent and Paeonia baokangensis Z. L. Dai et T. Hong sp. Nov. as the male parent, the compatibility of distant hybridization and pollination was studied for exploring the relationship between the changes of pistils protect enzyme activity, soluble substance content and endogenous hormone content after pollination, pollens germination and pollen tubes growth. Result The results showed that the cytology of Paeonia baokangensis Z. L. Dai et T. Hong sp. Nov. and P. ostii ‘Feng Dan’ distant hybridization was poor as a result of slow pollens germination, corpus callosum deposition in pollen tubes, severe twisting and entanglement, disordered growth and branching, and only part of the pollens could pass through the style to the ovary. After pollination, the rapid increase of SOD activity was beneficial to pollens stigma recognition and pollen tubes growth; The rapid increase of MDA content was not conducive to the elongation and growth of pollen tubes in distant hybridization; Distant hybrid pistils had higher soluble protein and soluble sugar content than selfed pistils, which is manifested by enhanced stigma recognition and pistils rejection; The content of IAA in selfed pistils was significantly higher than that of distant hybridization, high levels of IAA, GA3 and IPA were helpful for pollens germination and pollen tubes growth; The ABA content of distant hybrid pistils was significantly higher than that of selfed pistils, high levels of ABA and JA showed an inhibitory effect on the growth of pollen tubes, induced the deposition of callosum, and the pollen tubes twisted and twisted to grow disorderly. Conclusion Pre-fertilization barriers exist in distant hybridization of P. ostii ‘Feng Dan’ and Paeonia baokangensis, which is closely related to the changes of enzyme activity in the pistil, the dynamic changes of endogenous hormone content and the content of soluble substances.

Abstract:
Objective To analyze the natural allelic variation which controls agronomic characters and obtain the associated SSR loci of chestnut for supporting molecular marker assisted selection and efficient breeding. Method A total of 235 chestnut hybrid progeny populations covering 9 cross combinations were used to analyze the genetic structure and linkage disequilibrium(LD)of the populations. And association analysis of 32 highly polymorphic SSR markers with 25 agronomic traits were conducted. Result There was a certain linkage disequilibrium in 496 loci of 32 SSR markers when P < 0.05, among which 74 loci had a higher level of linkage disequilibrium than the others, accounting for 14.92% of the total marker pairs. However, when P < 0.01, the overall level of LD among the 32 SSR loci was low. Genetic structure analysis results showed that when K=4, the Delta K value approximated the maximum. The F1 mixed population was divided into four sub-populations, and the distribution of offspring in each sub-population showed a certain degree of genetic differentiation, with an average degree of mixing of 0.120. In the GLM model, up to 28 SSR loci were significantly associated with 24 agronomic traits, and the associated SSR loci ranged from 1 to 22 for each trait, with interpretation rates ranging from 4.65% to 24.02%. In the MLM model, 26 SSR loci were significantly associated with 23 traits, and the interpretation rates ranged from 5.04% to 24.02%. Based on the correlation analysis results of the two models, 15 SSR markers were associated with 3 growth traits, 14 SSR markers were associated with 3 branch traits, and 26 SSR markers were associated with 18 leaf phenotype and photosynthetic physiological traits. Conclusion 15 SSR markers including ICMA017s are highly correlated with 13 agronomic traits, and the interpretation rates of markers for traits are more than 10.00%. In addition, there is a phenomenon that the same marker is highly correlated with multiple traits and the same trait is highly correlated with multiple markers.

Abstract:
Objective To explore the natural regeneration in Larix principis-rupprechtii plantation in Guandi Mountain, and explore the effect of gap size on regeneration. Methods In this study, the density, growth status and spatial distribution of seedlings of Larix principis-rupprechtii under different gap sizes were investigated. The K2 function point pattern analysis was performed for exploring spatial pattern of seedlings under different gap sizes. Results (1) The regeneration density and growth indices of Larix principis-rupprechtii were positively correlated with the increase of gap area (P < 0.05). Gap size had the most significant effect on sapling growth indexes (base diameter, height and age). The maximum mean values of growth indexes mostly appeared in gap grade I (20~50 m2), and the maximum mean values of seedlings and saplings density appeared in gap grade II (50~100 m2) and III (100~150 m2), respectively. (2) Saplings mostly distributed in the canopy projection area and canopy gap edge, and gradually distributed in the center of the gap. (3) In the gap of Larix principis-rupprechtii, most of the saplings were aggregated and distributed in small scale, and few saplings were evenly distributed. Conclusion Gap size has a significant effect on regeneration of Larix principis-rupprechtii. Gap grade I (20~50 m2) is conducive to seedling establishment and germination. In addition, the gap area could be enlarged to grade II (50~100 m2) by human disturbance to promote seedling survival and sapling growth.

Abstract:
Objective To provide helpful insights into forest management and sustainable forestry development, the applicability of eddy covariance method in the coniferous and broad-leaved mixed forest in Jinyun Mountain was explored and the carbon source or sink of the coniferous and broad-leaved mixed forest ecosystem was clarified. Method Used the eddy covariance observation method(EC) to obtain the carbon flux monitoring data of the coniferous and broad-leaved mixed forest in Jinyun Mountain from 2019.11 to 2020.10. Through turbulence data quality evaluation, energy closure and flux footprint analysis, the applicability of the eddy covariance to the underlying surface was verified. The changes of carbon flux in the ecosystem were analyzed, and the carbon source or sink in the study area were evaluated. Results During the study period, the turbulence data quality check of sensible heat flux(H), latent heat flux(LE) and carbon flux(Fc) was good, and the proportions of high-quality data were 77%, 61% and 62% respectively. During the growing season(April-October), the upper-layer energy closure rate was 0.82, and the lower-layer energy closure rate was 0.73. The direction of the high flux contribution area was consistent with the main wind direction (northeast)The. During the study period, the annual carbon sequestration of the ecosystem was 887.40 g·m−2. The monthly average daily changes and seasonal average daily changes were mostly bimodal, and the cumulative change of Fc was −826.2 g·m−2 in the growing season and −61.2 g·m−2 in the non-growing season. The main environmental factors affecting carbon flux were photosunthetically active radiation and wind speed, and R2 was 0.75 and 0.43, respectively. Conclusion The EC had good applicability in the monitoring process of the Jinyun Mountain coniferous and broad-leaved mixed forest ecosystem, and flux monitoring data are creadible, and flux quality check is evaluated well. During the study period, the ecosystem is in the process of carbon sink,and the carbon sink capacity in the growing season is significantly higher than that in the non-growing season. Photosynthetically active radiation and wind speed are the main environmental factors affecting carbon flux changes.

Abstract:
Objective To elucidate the variation pattern of the propagules phenotypic characters of Acer triflorum from different origins in Northeast China, and provide the basis for genetic resource conservation and selection breeding of Acer triflorum. Method Acer triflorum propagules from four producing areas of Heilongjiang, Liaoning and Jilin were used to determine the phenotype and vigor of the propagules. Result The results of variance analysis showed that, except the ratio of length to width of key fruit (P = 0.787), the differences of other traits among origins were extremely significant (P < 0.01). There were significant differences in phenotypic characters of Acer triflorum among different producing areas. Correlation analysis of each character showed that fruit length was positively correlated with fruit width, samara length, bears mark, wing length and shell percentage (P < 0.05, 0.368≤r≤0.421), and seed viability wasnegativly correlated withsamara length and shell rate (r = −0.897, r = −0.507, P < 0.01). Correlation analysis between the propagules of Acer triflorum and environmental factors showed that the samara length, samara width, fruit thickness and wing length were negatively correlated with altitude (−0.556≤r≤−0.529, P < 0.05). Fruit length, fruit width and 1000-seed weight were negatively correlated with altitude (−0.456≤r≤−0.380, P < 0.05). Shell rate was negatively correlated with annual mean temperature (r = −0.549, P < 0.05), whereas seed viability was positively correlated with annual mean temperature (r = 0.516, P < 0.05). The comprehensive evaluation value of P2 origin was higher than the others, with realistic gain 2.83%-22.08%. The realistic gain of 6 excellent families was 1.13%-78.65% based on the 20% selection rate. Conclusion There are abundant differences in phenotypic traits of Acer trifolium, which is mainly affected by two environmental factors: altitude and average annual temperature. According to the comprehensive evaluation of multiple characters, preliminarily selected P2 origin and 6 families including 19, 12, 6, 22, 27, 28 are excellent materials.

Abstract:
Objective The aims of this study were to investigate the gene structure and phylogenetic of the mulberry (Morus alba L.) HD-Zip I subfamily members, clarify the tissue-specific expression of these genes in different organs, and reveal the expression level of the family genes under ABA and abiotic stress. Method Identification of putative HD-Zip I subfamily genes from MorusDB and bioinformatics analysis were performed. The evolutionary tree was constructed based on the multiple sequence alignment of the Arabidopsis and mulberry. RNA-seq data was used to analyze the tissue-specific expression of mulberry HD-Zip I genes. The transcription level of the family genes under hormone and abiotic stress was detected by qRT-PCR. Result A total of 14 HD-Zip I genes were identified in the mulberry genome. These members could be divided into six classes by phylogenetic tree. Members in the same class were similar in the gene structure and protein motifs. The expression level of both MnHD-Zip 2 and MnHD-Zip 6 were high in root, branch, winter bud, male flower, and leaf according to the RNA-seq data. All the MnHD-Zip I gene except MnHD-Zip 8, MnHD-Zip 9, MnHD-Zip 11, MnHD-Zip 12, and MnHD-Zip 13 were inhibited by ABA. The result of qRT-PCR showed that all the mulberry HD-Zip I genes could be induced by the abiotic stresses. Conclusion The β clades genes that were highly expressed in most of the organs were observably induced by the NaCl and dehydration. These results indicates that genes from the β clades of MnHD-Zip I play important roles in the development and stress response. In addition, MnHD-Zip 8 and MnHD-Zip 12 were dramatically up regulated by waterlogging, NaCl and dehydration, which indicates that these genes have essential roles in stress regulation of mulberry.

Abstract:
Objective Clarifying the effect of genotype on rubber tree somatic embryogenesis and combining with pedigree analysis to classify and group will provide a theoretical basis for accurately optimizing the somatic embryogenesis system of rubber trees. Method The genetic relationship between the 32 main rubber tree cultivars and their parents preserved in China National Rubber Tree Germplasm Repository was clarified through pedigree analysis. The two mediums with high somatic embryo induction rate in multiple cultivars in the previous experiment were used to induce callus and further induce somatic embryogenesis with anthers as explants. Finally, the induction rate of somatic embryos based on genetic relationship was analyzed. Result The pedigree analysis of 32 rubber tree cultivars showed that 7 cultivars were primary clones including PR107, GT1, PB86, Tjirl, Haiken1, Tianren31-45, and Hekou3-11. Twenty-three of the remaining 25 cultivars are genetically related to 1-3 of the above 7 cultivars. It is clear that the source of parents of rubber tree cultivars in China is narrow. Combining pedigree and somatic embryogenesis analysis showed that the somatic embryogenesis ability of rubber tree cultivars is closely related to the parental source, and the parental somatic embryogenesis ability determines the somatic embryogenesis ability of its offspring cultivars. When both parents are recalcitrant to somatic embryogenesis, most of their hybrid progeny are recalcitrant. When one of the parents has high somatic embryogenesis efficiency, even if the other parent is recalcitrant, most of its hybrid offspring have high somatic embryogenesis efficiency. However, the frequency of somatic embryogenesis varies significantly among these offspring, and there is a phenomenon of super-parental, which indicates that the rubber tree somatic embryogenesis is controlled by the participation of multiple genes. GT1, Tianren31-45, 93-114, RRIM513, and other parent-derived cultivars have low somatic embryo induction rate (e.g., Yunyan77-2, Yunyan77-4, Yunyan73-46, Baoting1-285, Zhanshi32713, and Reyan217), and PB86, RRIM600, Reyan88-13, and, Haiken1 and other parent-derived cultivars have high somatic embryo induction rate (e.g., Dafeng95, Haiken2, Reyan917, Reyan73397, Reyan879, Reyan918, Xuyu3, and Xuyu141-2). Conclusion There are obvious genotypic differences in rubber tree somatic embryogenesis, and this difference can be heritable. According to the somatic embryo induction efficiency and genetic relationship, analyzing and grouping 32 main rubber tree cultivars and their parents provide a way to optimize the somatic embryogenesis of rubber tree cultivars by genotype grouping.

Abstract:
Objective To provide theoretical evidence relating to forest soil nitrogen circulation and forest vegetation restoration in warm temperate forests, the diversity, composition of soil nitrogen-fixing bacteria community and their relations with soil properties were studied in four different forest types in Songshan National Nature Reserve of Beijing. Method Four typical forest stands (Pinus tabuliformis Carriere (Pt), Pine-poplar mixed (Mix), Quercus mongolica Fisch (Qm) and Juglans mandshurica Maxim (Jm)) were selected with three replicate plots (20 m × 20 m). Soil samples of 0~20 cm soil layer were collected from each plot to analyze soil properties. In this study, real-time quantitative PCR and High-throughput sequencing were used to study the diversity and composition of soil nitrogen-fixing bacteria. Pearson’s correlation analysis and redundancy analysis (RDA) were used to examine the soil properties factors driving the community structure and diversity of the soil nitrogen-fixing bacteria. Result A total of 4 phyla, 6 classes, 13 orders, 16 families and 29 genera were detected from the soil samples. There were significant differences in the α diversity of soil nitrogen-fixing bacteria in the four forest types with Pt > Mix > Jm > Qm. β-diversity analysis showed that the inter-group differences of soil nitrogen-fixing bacteria communities of the four forest types were greater than the intra-group differences.. Proteobacteria was the dominant phylum. Bradyhizobium, Azohydromonas and Skermanella were the dominant genera in all soil samples. Redundancy analysis (RDA) showed that soil properties could explain 65.48% of the variation of soil nitrogen-fixing bacteria community. Soil organic matter and total nitrogen were the main factors affecting the structure and diversity of the soil nitrogen-fixing bacteria community. Conclusion There are abundant soil nitrogen-fixing bacteria resources in Haituo Mountain. There are significant differences in soil properties, soil nitrogen-fixing bacteria diversity and community structure under different forest stands. Soil organic matter and total nitrogen are the main soil properties factors that significantly affect the soil nitrogen-fixing bacteria in Haituo Mountains.

Abstract:
Objective Clarifying the spatial heterogeneity of soil bulk density on forest slopes and quantifying its reasonable sample sizes are of great significance for accurately understanding the runoff mechanism on hillslopes. Method Combining traditional statistics and geostatistics methods, the spatial heterogeneity of soil bulk density in 0~100 cm soil layer on a Larix gmelinii var. principis-rupprechtii (Mayr) Pilg. plantation hillslope in Liupan Mountains was analyzed. The minimum sampling sizes of soil bulk density under 95% confidence level and 10% error were quantified using Monte Carlo simulation sampling method. Result The soil bulk density in 100 cm soil depth on the hillslope varied from 0.99~1.48 g·cm−3. As the soil layer deepened, the soil bulk density gradually increased. Traditional statistics showed that the soil bulk density in 0~20 cm soil layer had weak variation, while other soil layers had moderate variation. The spatial heterogeneity of rock fragment on the slope was the main factor leading to the spatial variation of soil bulk density in different soil layers. Geostatistics showed that the spatial structure of soil bulk density in each soil layer was moderate spatial autocorrelation. The difference in the spatial variation of soil bulk density among different soil depths leaded to the differences in the minimum sampling size in varied soil depths. In the 95% confidence interval, if estimation accuracy of the soil bulk density in 100 cm soil layer was controlled to be within 10% error, at least 10 sampling points should be made. Conclusion There is a large spatial variation in soil bulk density on forest hillslope, and the reasonable sample size depends on the degree of spatial variation in soil bulk density. In the future, reasonable and efficient sampling strategies should be developed based on the relationship between the spatial variation of soil bulk density and the reasonable sampling sizes.

Abstract:
Objective To investigate the changes in soil phosphorus (P) fractions in Pinus taiwanensis forest under nitrogen (N) deposition, and further explore the driving factors of P fractions changes for providing scientific basis for how Pinus taiwanensis forest adapts to the continuous aggravation of nitrogen deposition in the future. Method Soil P fractions, microbial biomass, acid phosphomonoesterase activity (ACP), phosphodiesterase enzyme activity (Phosphodiesterase enzyme, PD), and soil phospholipid fatty acids were detected in a short-term N-addition experiment in a Pinus taiwanensis forest on Daiyun Mountain, Fujian Province, China. Result There were significant effects of high N addition on the content of moderately labile P and stable P at 0−10 cm depth, whereas insignificant effects on the content of labile P, microbial biomass, ACP, PD, and community composition. In addition, low nitrogen supplementation significantly decreased the ratio of gram-positive bacteria to gram-negative bacteria in 10−20 cm soil layer (p < 0.05). In general, the variation trend of P fractions in the 10−20 cm soil layer was consistent with that in the 0−10 cm soil layer, but the change was not significant. However, N addition significantly decreased the content of microbial biomass P, and significantly increased ACP, PD activity and microbial biomass N/microbial biomass P. In addition, low N addition significantly decreased the ratio of gram-positive bacteria to gram-negative bacteria in 10−20 cm depth (p < 0.05). Redundancy analysis showed that soluble organic carbon and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi key factors affecting changes in soil P fractions. Conclusion Short-term N addition maintains the soil P availability by promoting P transformation (e.g. the mineralization of moderate labile P), which is helpful for understanding the maintenance mechanism of soil P availability and productivity in P-poor ecosystems under short-term nitrogen deposition.

Abstract:
Objective Determining the water use characteristics of different afforestation tree species would supply a theoretical basis for the selection of tree species in vegetation restoration and reconstruction in semiarid and arid sandy lands. Method Leaf δ13C values of Pinus sylvestris var. mongolica, Populus × xiaozhuanica, Pinus tabuliformis, and Ulmus pumila trees in the south edge of the Horqin Sandy Land were measured together with monitoring soil water content at different depths to compare their water use efficiency (indicative of leaf δ13C) during the growing season, and the effect of hydrothermal factors on the water use efficiency was discussed. Result The leaf δ13C values of P. sylvestris var. mongolica, P. tabuliformis, and U. pumila trees decreased with seasons, whereas the leaf δ13C values of P. × xiaozhuanica firstly increased and then declined during the measurement period. In addition, the mean leaf δ13C value was higher in P. sylvestris var. mongolica trees (−26.92‰ ± 0.11‰) than in P. × xiaozhuanica (−27.40 ‰± 0.10‰) and P. tabuliformis (−27.57 ‰± 0.14‰) trees, whereas the mean leaf δ13C value was higher in P. × xiaozhuanica and P. tabuliformis trees than in U. pumila trees (−29.23 ‰± 0.17‰). The responses of the leaf δ13C monthly values to hydrothermal factors varied with tree species. There were no significant relationships between leaf δ13C monthly values and hydrothermal factors for P. sylvestris var. mongolica and U. pumila trees, whereas a significant negative relationship between monthly change in leaf δ13C and precipitation, air temperature, or relative humidity was observed for P. tabuliformis trees. However, a significant positive relationship between leaf δ13C monthly change values and air temperature was found for P. × xiaozhuanica trees. Conclusion The water use efficiency is the highest in P. sylvestris var. mongolica trees, followed by P. × xiaozhuanica and P. tabuliformis trees and the lowest value in U. pumila trees. In addition, water use efficiency for different tree species is not only related to biological characteristics but also related to the degree of influence by hydrothermal factors.

Abstract:
Objective To support comprehensive utilization and genetic improvement for two species of Diospyros spp. in Dabie Mountains, the phenotypic diversity within and among the populations was studied . Method Fruit and seed morphological properties of 11 Luotiantianshi persimmon (D. kaki) and wild persimmon (D. kaki var. silvestris) population were measured and analyzed. Result (1)The maximum value of fruit weight of Luotiantianshi persimmon’s phenotypic traits was 1.42 times the minimum value, and the maximum value of seed mass was 4.07 times the minimum value. The maximum value of fruit shape index of wide persimmon’s phenotypic traits was 1.48 times the minimum value and the maximum of seed mass was 5.53 times the minimum value. The average value of variation coefficient of Luotiantianshi persimmon and wild persimmon was 13.78% and 22.15%, respectively. and the Shannon index was 1.80 and 2.04, respectively. The variation level of wild persimmon was significant higher than Luotiantianshi persimmon. (2) The among-population variation (24.30%) of Luotiantianshi persimmon was much larger than the within-population variation (17.07%) ; and the mean phenotypic differentiation coefficient was 33.23%. While the within - population variation 48.75%) of wild persimmon was much larger than the among-population variation (6.69%); and the mean phenotypic differentiation coefficient was 73.13% which indicated that considerable differentiation was existed between population of wild permmison phenotype. Conclusion Luotiantianshi persimmon has the modest phenotypic diversity and the degree of phenotypic variation is slight and stable. In addition, there is low level of population differentiation. Within-population variation is the main source of variation. Wild persimmon has relatively higher phenotypic diversity level differentiation potential. Among all phenotypic traits, fruit weight, seed number, and evolutionary potential are high. In a conclusion, these two kinds of persimmon have different responsiveness to complex habitats.

Abstract:
Objective The pathogens causing shoot blight of Platycladus orientalis (L.) Franco in the Jinan Forest Farm, Shandong province were identified to provide a basis for the prevention and control of the disease. Method The pathogens were isolated from the lesion borders of P. orientalis by tissue isolation, and the pure cultures were obtained by monosporic isolation. The isolated strains were identified by combining morphological and polygenic phylogenetic analysis (ITS, TEF-1α, TUB2). Result Colonies were initially white, flattened with tufts of white mycelium. After 14 days, mycelium turned to be dark gray-green and dark brown on the back. Conidia are hyaline, unicellular, fusiform, ellipsoid, and cymbiform, ovoid. Three representative isolates (CBL-02, CLB-03, and CBCB-02) were used for pathogenicity tests and phylogenetic analyses. All the isolates tested could cause similar symptoms on the P. orientalis. The multilocus phylogenetic tree was generated using the maximum parsimony method based on 3 genomic loci ITS, TEF-1α, and TUB2. In the maximum likelihood phylogenetic tree, all test isolates were clustered in N. occulatum clade with 89% bootstrap support. Based on the multi-gene phylogeny and morphology, all test isolates were identified as N. occulatum Sakalidis, M. L., Burgess, T. I. Conclusion It is clear that N. occulatum is the pathogenic bacteria causing shoot blight of P. orientalis, and P. orientalis in Jinan City, Shandong Province.
