Spatial distribution of soil organic matter and nitrogen in soil of circular-zonary vegetation areas in Wulanpao Wetland, Inner Mongolia

Spatial distribution of soil organic matter and nitrogen in soil of circular-zonary vegetation areas in Wulanpao Wetland, Inner Mongolia

Hupo Kexue 14(2): 145-151, June

This paper investigates preliminarily spatial distribution of soil organic matter and nitrogen in wetland soil of circular distribtuion vegetation areas in Wulanpao Wetland, Inner Mongolia, which shows that vertical distribution of nutrients in different vegetation areas are of similar tendency but their horizontal distributions are very different, and they vary along the soil moisture gradient, that is, organic matter and nitrogen content decrease with the increase of distance to waters, Polygonaceae area>Thpya orientalis area>Phragmites cmmunis area. The ratio of carbon to nitrogen(C/N) ranges from 5 to 12, and C/N values also vary with moisture gradient, but variant tendency is opposite to that of SOM and TN content in the order Phragmites cmmunis area>Thpya orientalis area>Polygonaceae area; effects of moisture, soil organic matter and total nitrogen content on C/N values of Wetland soil and grassland soil are significantly different. Moisture and plant are the key factors influencing horizontal distributons of nutrients, but pH is not the one in this region.
