2024-02-08Disentangling climate and evolution in explaining variation in hydraulic traits of Fabaceae speciesGenera and over 19500 species .Many species in Fabaceae are cosmopolitan , showing particular diversity and abundance in seasonal dry tropical forests and.Phylogenetic trees of Fabaceae species and sampling status in this study .Read More
The contrasting hydraulic traits observed among different plant life forms are shaped by entangled environmental and evolutionary processes. However, we lack understanding of the relative importance of life form, climate and phylogeny in explaining the variance of hydraulic traits. As the third largest family of angiosperms, Fabaceae has ~7...

The research team led by Prof. WANG Faming at the South China Botanical Garden, Chinese Academy of Sciences, has achieved breakthroughs in understanding the formation and microbial regulation of 'blue carbon' in coastal zones. Their work, part of the ANSO initiative, highlights the critical role of mangroves in the global carbon cycle.
2024-01-31Weakened increase in global near-surface water vapor pressure during the last 20 yearsThe increasing trend in global near-surface land and ocean actual water vapor pressure has weakened since the late 1990s .The near-surface actual water vapor pressure ( AVP ) strongly regulates surface vapor pressure deficit ( VPD ) , i . e . .Such weakened AVP is associated with a slowdown in oceanic evaporation ( more important ) and land surf... The increasing trend in global near-surface land and ocean actual water vapor pressure has weakened since the late 1990s, as shown in a study published in Geophysical Research Letters. This study was mainly led by Associate Prof. XU Wenfang from the South China Botanical Garden of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.As one of the key components of ...Read More
2024-01-12Effect of fire and post-fire management on soil microbial communities in a lower subtropical forest ecosystem after a mountain fireRelationships between the co-occurrence networks of soil bacterial ( a ) and fungal ( b ) communities and soil properties .Read More
Wildfire stands as a significant perturbation with enduring implications for terrestrial ecosystems, notably within forested domains. While fires alter forest ecosystem dynamics, post-fire management strategies ranging from natural to human-intervened artificial restoration which involves planting diverse tree species after the removal of t...
2024-01-08Climatic drivers of litterfall production and its components in two subtropical forests in South China: A 14-year observationAn important pathway for material cycling and energy flow in forest ecosystems .Terrestrial forest ecosystems .Read More
Forest litterfall, an important indicator of forest productivity and function, is not only an important source of organic matter formation in forest soil, but also an important pathway for material cycling and energy flow in forest ecosystems. Therefore, it has always been a hot topic in forest ecology research. Against the backdrop of glob...
