    Diurnal variations of photosynthesis and response to light in the leaves of Rhododendron fortunei were studied under natural conditions.The results indicated that in the typical summer sunny days, the curve of diurnal variation of net photosynthetic rate (Pn)in the sunnyleaves was dual-peaked with obvious midday depression of the photosynthetic efficiency.The diurnal variation of internal CO2 concentration (Ci)was just opposite to Pn.The increase of Ci at midday indicated that the midday depression of the photosynthetic efficiency was mainly influenced by the non-stomatal limited elements.The respiration rate (R)was the highest at midday with single-peaked curves of diurnal variation.There was small variation of Pn in the shadeleaves at the most time in a day.The response to light at different time in a day showed that the saturated light intensity and apparent quantum yield (AQY)were higher in the morning and decreased in the afternoon while the light compensation points increased.No matter in the morning or in the afternoon, the variations of these photosynthetic parameters in the shadeleaves were slight.These results indicated that the main reason of the midday depression of the photosynthetic efficiency in the sunnyleaves of Rhododendron fortunei was the photoinhibition caused by strong light.The analysis of stepwise multi-regression and path coefficient showed that the photosynthetically active radiation (PAR)and ambient temperature (Ta)were the main direct factors which affected the diurnal variation of Pn.

    Importance value (IV)was amended, and concepts of theoretical mean importance value (TMIV), simple importance value (SIV)and sample plot index (SPI)were given in the present study.Here, they are defined as follow:TMIV is the mean importance value that is calculated theoretically as species number changes in the sample plot.SIV is that the TMIV multiples the ratio of biomass of a plant to average biomass of all plants in same plot or multiples the ratio of volume (coverage multiplying height)of a plant to average volume of all plants in same plot.SPI is that the SIV multiples the ratio of biomass of a plant to average biomass of same plant in all plots or multiples the ratio of volume of a plant to average volume of same plant in all plots.Relatively, to use the SIV can save workload in field compared with the IV, while the SPI can reflect the occupied dominance of a plant not only compared with other plants within a sample plot but also compared with same plant among all sample plots, which makes the IVs of different sample plots have reasonable comparability.Three indices (IV, SIV and SPI) were used in classifying the communities of Leymus chinensis by cluster analysis, and the results indicated that the SIV can be acted as an index and the SPI as a more suitable index in the quantitative classification of plant communities compared with the IV.
