Plant physiological ecology
The stand structure and dynamics of forests are researched to demonstrate the mechanism of regeneration in forests. The eco-physiological characteristics of invasion, establishment, survival, and growth in relationship to whole-plant water use and matter production of tree species are analyzed to determine the strategies of different species. Based on these research results, an optimal model in the management of forests is constructed for the sustainable conservation of the forests.
