    The floral organogenesis and development of Clematis fruticosa Turcz. were observed under scanning electron microscope (SEM). Four sepals are decussate in position and whorled phyllotaxis in arrangement. The primary four stamen primodia initiate spirally nearly in joint position of four sepals. Then, with the increasing of stamen primordium numbers, the phyllotaxis gradually change into slightly apparent spiral pattern. When initiation of stamen primordia have finished, carpel primordia initiate spirally along the initiation pattern of stamen primordia on the floral primordium apex. Our results support the viewpoint that the spiral phyllotaxis and the whorled phyllotaxis can coexist in a flower of primitive angiosperms. Furthermore, we also confirmed the view that sepal and bract are homologous.

    To investigate the differentially expressed genes during the development of Betula platyphylla female inflorescence, a suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) library was constructed by using the cDNAs from the female and male inflorescences, respectively, as the tester and the driver. The recombination of the SSH library was 72%, with about 400 bp of average insert length. The clones from SSH library were selected randomly for sequencing. Totally, 150 ESTs were obtained, with the GenBank accession number EE284580-EE284681, EE595316-EE595363. The ESTs were functional annotated by BlastX. Among them, 111 ESTs significantly matched with Nr database, and were further classified into functional groups including metablism, cell rescue, defence, transcription, energy and signal transduction, etc.. The genes related in flower development were found in our EST collection, which account for 21% of known function ESTs. These genes including MADS-box, S-locus F-box, etc., and their function involved in inflorescence forming and differentiation regulation, pollen-stigma interactions control and pollen tube development, etc. The obtaining of these EST will provide a reference for analysis of gene expression in the inflorescence of B.platyphylla, and also will make a base for cloning genes related with developments of follower and gene functional analysis in follower development.

    The TMV-replicase gene was regarded target-directed sequence for RNA interference in this paper. The target sequence was linked to pMD18-T Simple Vector and replicated in E.coli DH 5α. after obtained by RT-PCR reaction. The pMD18-T Simple vector (which contains target sequence) was digested restrictively by double-endonuclease, after purifying the digested product was inserted into pUCCRNAi vector by the counterrepeat way. Then the counterrepeated structure of target sequence was inserted into pC2300-35s-OCS expression vector after enzyme disgested. The recombination plamid was transferred into Agrobacterium tumefaciens which only contained assistant plasmid in order to construct double-plasmid expression vector. With PCR reaction and restriction endonuclease digestion, the target gene sequence was comfirmed in engineering-bacterium.

    Effects of different water conditions on proline and chlorophyll contents in current-needles and previous-needles of Pinus koraiensis and P. sibirica were studied. Three-year-old potted P. koraiensis and P. sibirica were taken as materials with four water regimes: 29%~31%(C), 22%~24%(L), 15%~17%(M) and waterlogging condition(W). The results were as follows: 1) proline content varied with leaf age and species. Chlorophyll content of current-needles was higher than that of previous-needles in P. koraiensis, and it was opposite in P. sibirica. Proline content in P. koraiensis was generally higher than that in P. sibirica; 2) proline content was accumulated significantly in both two species under waterlogging. Water stress appeared after one month treatment in P. koraiensis, and this was earlier than in P. sibirica. The previous-needles of both two species was under water stress as the soil water contents reached 15%~17%, but the effect in P. koraiensis was larger than in P. sibirica. 3) The accumulation of chlorophyll content had little correlation with the capacity of resistance to water stress in the two species; 4)P. sibirica had wider water fitting range than P. koraiensis; the capacity of resistance to water stress in current-needles was bigger than that in previous-needles in both two species.

    Seasonal changes in the contents of water and organic osmotica were examined in the leaves of Sabina przewalskii and Sabina chinensis, aimed to probe into their relationships with freezing tolerance. The results showed that the relative water content (RWC) and free water content (FWC) decreased during hardening in autumn, but bound water content (BWC) and organic osmotica accumulated and remained relatively higher level over winter. In spring, RWC and FWC increased, BWC decreased, and organic osmotica accumulated again. These seasonal patterns were consistent with winter hardening and dehardening. Organic osmotica may supply nutrients to regrowth in spring and contribute to the stabilization of the cell membrane by preventing lipid peroxidation and by binding the tissue water. The results also suggested that a better capacity for osmoregulation in S. przewalskii might account for its greater capacity for freezing tolerance than S. chinensis.

    Hydroponics experiments were conducted to study the changes of biological aspects under different levels of NaCl and compound-salt stress with the seedlings of Ammopiptanthus mongolicus. The effect of varying concentrations of Phosphate fertilizer solutions on the tolerance under salt stress was also evaluated. The result indicated that, the tolerance under the NaCl stress was stronger than that under compound-salt stress. When the concentration was below 0.7%, the growth was normal, when the concentration surpassed 0.8%, the mortality rate increased, and under the concentration of 1.0% the mortality rate was 86%. The tolerance under the compound salt stress was weak. When the concentration was 0.6%, the mortality rate achieved 93.3%. Proper phosphate fertilizer enhanced the seedling tolerance under NaCl stress as well as made sprout stronger.

    Mountain Wulian Nature Reserve is located in the southeast coastal region of Shandong Province,to fully understand their community structure and species diversity,the author conducted a field survey,and obtained 11 standard samples,whose total area is 6 600 m2. In samples,the author recorded 141 higher plants,belonging to 52 families.Regional vegetation in this Nature Reserve is evergreen conifer woods-deciduous broadleaverd forest,and deciduous broadleaverd forest,the main forest vegetation is Pinus densiflora-Castanea mollissima community,Quercus acutissima-Pinus densiflora community,P. densiflora-Rhododendron simsii community,Q. acutissima-Rhododendron simsii community.Sample data displays this region xylophyte type is not very rich,but the community structure is complex with obvious environment heterogeneity,indicating tree layer diversity index<woody layer diversity index<shrub layer diversity index.The author thinks what affects the diversity of the Wulian core protection areas most is elevation and slope,and the external protection of human interference would seriously affect the vegetation types and species diversity.Overall,the region is in early successional communities,interspecific competition is not sufficient,and the species diversity is low.

    On the basis of quadrate investigation, with the method of “spatial sere substituting for time sere”, the communities of Jinchengshan National Forest Park were divided into eight types by group average clustering, and each structural feature of the communities was discussed individually. Moreover, the pattern for dominant population structure was analyzed by population structure development and survival curve. The results showed that Cupressus funebris,Cunninghamia lanceolala+Quercus acuissima belonged to the declining populations, whereas, Cupressus funebris+Quercus fabric, Pinus massoniana+Cupressus funebris and Quercus acuissima+Quercus fabric were growing populations, and Symplocos szechumensis+Lindera setchuenensis, Pinus massoniana+Symplocos szechumensis and Pinus massoniana kept stationary. Habitat condition and human disturbance were the main factors affecting the age structure and the dynamics of populations, and thus, the protection and fostering of the communities of Jinchengshan National Forest Park should be reinforced, meanwhile, the human disturbance should be reduced.

    Based on 688 permanent sample plots,the whole stand growth model of BP ANN was developed for natural dahurian larch(Larix gemelinii Rupr.) forests in area of the Daxing’an Mountains, using log-sigmoid function (logsig) and linearity function (purelin) of MATLAB as the neural functions. According to the concept of whole stand growth model,the Age(A),Site Class Index (SCI) and Stand Density Index (SDI) were considered as input variables and the Stand Volume(M) was as the output variable in the model. A comparative study between BP ANN model and the common method was also conducted. The result of the model performance analysis was showed that the BP ANN model in this paper had high fitting accuracy (99.6%) and precision (98.9%), it is better than the common methods in fitting and adaptability and it was suitable to predicting stand growth.
