    The anatomical structures of leaves of 3 species i.e. Saussurea medusa Maxim, Saussurea gnaphalodes (Royle)Sch, Saussurea paxiana Diels. in Saussurea grown in Qilianshan(halt≈5 000 m) were comparatively studied with the method of paraffin section. The obvious features of 3 plant species are as follows: the cell of upper epidermis in lamna is in one layer and cuticle is thick. The leaves have their stoma in both leaf surfaces and stomata that are not sunken. Epidermal hairs are 1 cell wide. The three plant species are all bifacial leaf. Palisade mesophyll which is made up by 2~3 layers is well developed, but there is quitle large intercellular spaces among palisade mesophyll and among spongy mesophyll. Aerenchyma is well developed in mesophyll. The three plant species all have anomaly schizogenous intercellular cavity. There is a little idioblasts in the phloem. All these contribut to the results of long-term effects of harsh environment on Qilianshan. There are obvious differences among them such as the color of leaves, the cell characteristic of palisade mesophyll, the development of vascular bundle, the structure of secretory canal, schizogenous irregular cavity, etc.

    In the present study, the pollen morphology of 10 species in Impatiens L. has been examined under the scanning electron microscope (SEM). In these species, the pollen grains are long-elliptic, goniotreme, reticulate exine ornamentation. The size of pollen grains ranges from 20.3 to 46.7 μm in diameter. Based on the exine ornamentation differentiation, pollen grains are distinctly divided into two types. One is that reticulations have no (or few) granule such as Impatiens siculifer and I. wuyuanensis, the other is that granules are obvious including the other eight species. The results showed that the species of Impatiens can be classified on the basis of the pollen morphology, especially the granule characters of exine ornamentation. The exine sculptures are different among different species and therefore can provide some proof for identification of some species in Impatiens.

    We choose Chlamydomonas reinhardtii as our subject to focus on it’s photosynthesis characteristics under salty stress. The growth rate of C. reinhardtii under 0.04 mol·L-1 NaCl treatment showed no obvious inhibition but it decreased about 50% under 0.075 mol·L-1 NaCl treatment. In the low light density, the photosynthetic rate and respiration rate of C. reinhardtii were stimulated by the NaCl stress within 7 hours after the treatment. While in the high light density, the photosynthetic rate and respiration rate decreased under NaCl treatments. The increase degree and decrease degree of the photosynthetic and respiration rates were parallel with the concentration of NaCl.

    With 2D-PAGE techniques, comparison of leaf protein in cultivar wheat (AABBDD), Wheat-Haynaldia villosa chromosome substitution line (6V/6A), translocation lines (6VS/6AL), (6VS/6DL) and H. villosa (VV) have been made in this study. Over 350 protein species were detected in the leaf of cultivar wheat, chromosome substitution line and two translocation lines. Their molecular weight ranged from 10~110 KD and pI from 4.5~8.6. 2D-PAGE patterns of leaf protein are almost the same among cultivar wheat, 6V/6A, 6VS/6AL, 6VS/6DL; but different from H. villosa. A specific protein (16 KD/pI5.0) was found in substitution line, two translocation lines and H.villosa, but not found in the cultivar wheat. These results suggested that the protein (16 KD/pI5.0) may be located in the short arm of V chromosome of H. villosa.

    The genetic diversity of Sinocalycanthus chinensis populations in four different habitats, namely, scrub, evergreen broadleaved forest, Chinese fir forest and bamboo grove, was analyzed by polymorphic DNA technique. 12 primers were selected at random and 182 repeatable loci with 49 polymorphic loci were produced from 80 DNA samplings. The total average percentage of polymorphic loci was 26.92%. The percentage of polymorphic loci of four populations varied from 6.04% to 11.54% with an average of 8.93%, among which bamboo grove population was the highest and evergreen broadleaved forest population was the lowest with the order as follows: bamboo grove population>scrub population>Chinese fir population>evergreen broadleaved forest population. The results of Shannon’s index and Nei’s index were in the same trend, the highest was scrub population, followed by bamboo grove population, and then was Chinese fir population, the lowest was evergreen broadleaved forest population. Analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA) demonstrated that the genetic differentiation among population was high. Variation among population occupied 71.91%, while that within population occupied only 28.09%. The gene differentiation coefficient among populations was 0.672 6. The gene flow among populations was very low, Nm=0.297 0. Cluster analysis showed Chinese fir population and scrub population got together first, then evergreen broadleaf forest population joined in, and the final population was the bamboo grove. It was obvious that different population had different genetic diversity, and there were remarkable genetic differentiation among populations.

    The proper sterilizing method, the effects of basic media and hormones for axillary bud sprouting and proliferation in vitro were studied. The explants were stem cuts with axillary or apical bud from one-year old seedlings of Fraxinus mandshurica. The sterilization was proved to be very difficult. Sterilizing the buds with 0.05% HgCl2 for 2 min resulted in the lowest contamination. The effect of BA for bud germination was better than that of 2ip. Eight mg/L was proved to be the optimum level of BA, and the bud sprouting rate could reach 100% by this level. Shoot cluster could be obtained by transplanting the sprouted axillary buds onto medium with ZT, the best proliferation was observed on medium with one mg/L ZT, and the proliferation rate could reach three. WPM was proved to be the best medium either for the bud sprouting and shoot proliferation, that is, WPM medium is proper for in vitro axillary bud culture of F. mandshurica.

    The population dynamic of Castanopsis carlesii in Wuyishan Nature Reserve was studied and their age structures, the life table, survival curve and dead curves were analyzed.At the same time, the population dymamics were analyzed by spectral analysis method. The results showed that the C. carlesii population in Wuyishan Nature Reserve was a progressive or stable type. The number of young-age individuals was more than that of middle-age and old-age individuals. The population density differed amongdifferent altitudes,and the population C was the biggest. The life tables showed that the death rates at age class Ⅰ and Ⅱ were higher, and with the diameters class increasing, the death rates were decreasing. However, at age class Ⅳ and Ⅴ, the death rates increased again. The expected life of age class was higher before class Ⅳ, with age increasing, the expected life decreased gradually. The type of the survival curves of different population was close to Deevey Ⅲ. The spectral analysis of the population dynamics of C. carlesii was made, which showed that there was a marked regularity of periodic fluctuation in the process of natural regenration of C. carlesii.

    In this paper, the spatial pattern for 4 main shrub populations in Wulanbuhe Desert, Inner Mongolia was studied by using the semivariogram in Geostatistics. A sample plot with 1 000 m×1 000 m (total area is 100 hectares), which was divided in to 1 600 grids(25 m×25 m for each grid), was set in southwest of Bayangaole Town. The species and mean crown width of each shrub in each grid were investigated and recorded. Using the software GS+ for Windows, the parameters of the isotropic semivariogram were calculated and the Kriging map was drawn for each shrub population in the plot. According to parameters of the isotropic semivariance model, The spatial distribution of Tamarix chinensis can be described with spherical model of cluster distribution and proportion of spatial structure was high, which indicated less change and the lag of 25 m is appropriate at this area. The spatial distributions for Nitraria tangtorum, follow the exponential model of cluster distribution and proportion of spatial structure was lower. The results will provide the basis of sampling inventory for the desert plants.

    Responses of photosynthetic parameters of current and 1-year-old Larix olgensis Herry., Larix kaempferi Carr. and Larix gmelinii Rupr. seedlings to light intensity,curves of diurnal variation and seasonal variation were studied,the results are as follows: ①Among the three plants,the diurnal variation of photosynthetic rate of current and 1-year-old Larix olgensis Herry. and Larix kaempferi Carr. seedlings and current Larix gmelinii Rupr. seedlings were found as a double-peak curve,which were featured with “Noon rest” but that of 1-year-old Larix gmelinii Rupr. seedlings presented a single peak curve. ②Larix kaempferi Carr. seedlings had the highest light saturation point (LSP) and Larix gmelinii Rupr. seedlings had the lowest light compensation point (LCP). ③All of the 1-year-old Larix seedlings appeared highest photosynthetic capacity in the middle growing stage. From the age,the photosynthetic capacity of current Larix seedlings were lower than that of 1-year-old seedlings in the first and middle growing stages,but higher in the late growing stage. ④From the species,the sequence of maximum net photosynthetic rate (Pmax) of current and 1-year-old Larix seedlings was Larix kaempferi Carr.>Larix gmelinii Rupr.>Larix olgensis Herry. in the first growing stage; by the middle growing stage,the sequence of Pmax of current Larix seedlings was the same to the first growing stage,but 1-year-old Larix seedlings were different as Larix olgensis Herry.>Larix kaempferi Carr.>Larix gmelinii Rupr.; turn to the late growing stage,the sequence of Pmax of current Larix seedlings was Larix olgensis Herry.>Larix gmelinii Rupr.>Larix kaempferi Carr. and that of 1-year-old seedlings was in reverse with those in middle growing stage. We conclude that,there were different photosynthetic characteristics of the three species in the same growing stage; while the different photosynthetic characteristics of same species had also been showed in different ages and growing stages; among the three Larix species,the repair ability to the photoinhibition of Larix olgensis Herry. seedlings were strongest,that of Larix kaempferi Carr. seedlings took second place and Larix gmelinii Rupr. seedlings were weakest. Larix kaempferi Carr. seedlings were more photophilic and had strong photosynthetic capacity, which were not prone to photoinhibition,while Larix gmelinii Rupr. seedlings were more shade-tolerant. Therefore,we should consider the photosynthetic characteristics of different species to obtain optimal illumination conditions in cultivation and forestation.

    A simple and rapid HPLC coupled with Evaporative Light Scattering Detection (ELSD) method was developed for the determination of glucose and sucrose in Acanthopanax senticosus (Rupr. et Maxim.). The HPLC separation was performed on a CHROMATOREX NH2 column using acetonitrile-water (84.5:15.5, v/v) as mobile phase at a flow rate of 1 mL·min-1. The drift tube temperature of ELSD was set at 100℃, and with the nitrogen flow-rate of 2.5 L·min-1. The linear ranges were from 0.023 2 to 0.116 0 mg·mL-1 for glucose, and from 0.099 6 to 0.496 5 mg·mL-1 for sucrose. All regression coefficients were more than 0.999 0. The detection limits (Signal/Noise=3) obtained were 3.87 ng and 3.31 ng for glucose and sucrose, respectively. The method was first used for separation and determination of sugars in Traditional Chinese herb Acanthopanax senticosus (Rupr. et Maxim.) without prior derivatization, and the results were satisfactory.
