Study on the ecological process of regenerating the artificial forests of Populus euphratica in the lower reaches of the Tarim River



Study on the ecological process of regenerating the artificial forests of Populus euphratica in the lower reaches of the Tarim River



Arid Land Geography 27(3): 384-387



To regenerate the vegetation in the lower reaches of the Tarim River, Xinjiang, China, the diversity of the artificial forests of Populus euphratica is analysed from the aspects of the richness of community species, diversity index of species, uniformity of communities, and ecological predominance of the artificial forests of P. euphratica with the different ages based on the investigation of plant plots, and the change of the physiochemical properties of soil in recent 21 years is also analysed in detail. Results show that the richness of community species, diversity index of species and uniformity of communities of the artificial forests of P. euphratica increase continuously with the increase of age, but the ecological predominance decreases with the increase of age. Moreover, the physiochemical properties of the soil are continuously improved.
