Dinghu Mountain Research of Forest Ecosystem - China
Dinghu Mountain Research of Forest Ecosystem
DHS has well protected monsoon evergreen broadleaf forest and its successional forests. Therefore, DHS is an ideal place to research successional processes and patterns of subtropical forest ecosystems, as well as to restore or rehabilitate the degraded forest ecosystems in subtropics of China.
General Characteristics, Purpose, History
1)Study on the process and rules of zonal forest succession(i.e. interaction between structure and function, pattern and process).Explore the impact of global cliamte change on zonal forest.Provide a theoretical basis for the sustainable development of south subtropical forest ecosystem. Accumulate data in this typical area. 2)Studies the laws of natural reserve's conservation and sustainable development . Explores the mechanism of biodiversity conservation and maintenance.Discusses the coordination between natural protection and utilization. Provides the basis and model for effective management of forest nature reserves in China.
DHS was established in 1978, it became a member of Chinese Ecosystem Research Network (CERN), CAS in 1991. DHS was selected as pilot station of National Field Research Station network running by the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China in 1999. DHS joined in China Fluxnet, CAS and the Regional Atmospheric Observation Network, CAS in 2002 and 2003.
