1997, 14(1): 1-7.
The results of study on the various indices of 7 provenances showed that the root s ageing of some seedling from Jinyun and Daiyunshan affected the surival rate. The 7 provenances were divided into 5 groups: Lin an-Jinyun, Huang shan-Kaihua, Jinzhai, Daiyunshan and Tiantai. The seedling growth in stem mainly started in the earlier stage, while its growth in conifenous and root in the middle and later stege. The closing degrees of gross increment of provenance and the variation were inconsistent. The regulation rhythm of cell membrane and the cluster result of 7 provenances were consistent in the middle period. The variable rhythm of membrane permeability directly was influenced by the closing degree of variation, when the outside permeation of the elect rolytes of 7 provenances at 30℃ increased. Kaihua provenance had a stronger power of controlling the permeation. The range of quantative change of nucleic acid was greater than that of RNA. According to the comparison of DNA a nd RNA, Kaihua was in the maxmum position, and Lin an in the minimum posi tion. Major factor for the grouth of seedling root was the generaring quantity of RNA. The ulilization power in CO2 of Jinyun and Tiantai was much stronger than that of Kaihua, Huangshan, Jinzhai, Daiyunshan and Lin an, which could be considered as a basis for the initial separation of seedling stage of pine provenance.

Xu Youming, Lin Han, WanFuhong
1997, 14(1): 8-15.
Eight plantation trees (20 to 26 years old) and 2 natural forest trees (54 and 55 years old) of Masson pine were collected in Forest Farm of Jingshan County, Hubei Province. Tracheid lengths in radial direction first gradually increased and then levels off from pith to bark. It decreased along the stem height. So did the variation in tracheid lengthwide ratio. Basic density at the pith was bigger than that at the bark, and it firstly descended from pith to bark, then gradually asended and finally leveled off. It longitudinally descended from base to top. Cellulose content increased from pith (38. 57%) to near bark (46. 98%) in 22 years old trees. Lignin, pentosan and benzen-alchol extractives contents decreased from pith (28. 35%, 14. 32% and 6. 60%) to bark (24. 70%, 10. 24% and 1. 22%). The juvenile period of the wood was about 14 to 18 years old. Before the period, the tracheid length, length-wide ratio and extracted basic density in trees of natural forests were greater than those in those of plantations. After the period, the results were right converse. Based on variations in the whole tracheid morphological features, basic density , wood chemical composition and the tree growth properties, the range of mature ages for pulpwood were from 15 to 30 years old.

1997, 14(1): 29-34.
A plantation of Masson pine (Pinus massoniana) provenances and other pine species was planted in 1984 in the suburbs of Nanjing. Of the plantation 135 trees of 39 Masson pine prov enances and 6 other pine species were inoculated with Bursaphelenchus xylophilus collected from the dead trees of Masson pine in July of 1995, inoculating about 5 000 per tree. The resistance and process of susceptibility in different Masson pine provenances and other pine specics to the nematode had a great variance. Five Masson pine provenances from Gaozhou, Yingde and Xinyi of Guangdong, Xincheng of Guangxi, and Yuanan of Hubei had more resistance than other provenances, Pinus thunbargii and P. serotina, but less than P. elliottii, P. taeda, P. echinata and P. rigida. Masson pine resistance to the nematode was weakened along with provenance latitude from south to north.
On Insect and Disease Resistance of Cones in Different Chinese Fir Clones.
Xu Yi zhong, Lai Zhenliang, Feng Bingcai, Zhang Shihai, Sho Yang.
1997, 14(1): 35-40.
The Chinese fir cones were mainly harmed by three diseases, i. e. Botrytis cinerea, Pesealotiopsis apiculatus and Giomerella cingulata, and three pests, i. e. galls in Chinese fir cones, Dichomeris sp. and Sinorsillus piliferus. There were obvious variances between the resistances of the cones in different clones. Two clones, Longquan 20 and Kaihua 0, could resist the damage of diseases and pests, and Linan 131 was sensitive to diseases and pests. Mortality rate of cones at the north of crowns was obviously higher than that at the other directions.

Jia Kefeng, Cheng Yan, Wang Lizhong
1997, 14(1): 45-49.
In recent years, the nursery stocks and trees of Japanese sweet kaki persimmon hav e been seriously damaged by a nthracnose at Quxian Forest Farm of Quxian County, Zhejiang Province. The disease leads to stocks and twig swithered, blossom and fruit drop added, quantity and quality of stocks and fruit cut down. The disease starts to occur during late April to early May, lasting for mature period of fruits. Its incidence rate is related to air temperature, humidity, precipitation and rainy days. Heavy rainfall and long rainy days causes serious infection. On the contrary, high air temperature and low humidity do not. During periods of infection, control could be made by spraying tree crowns and stocks with 100-fold solution of bordeaux mixture, 1 000-fold chlorthalonil 75 wp and 600-fold mancozeb 50wp, resulting in efficiency of 89. 3%, 83. 4% and 85. 7% respectively.

Hu Chaozong, Jiang Yongxiang, Chen Yulan, Dong Yuanhua, Tian Guansen.
1997, 14(1): 101-105.
Cultivation technology for large leaved Lycium chinense was summarzed on the basis of studies on its cutting and growth habits with 8 cm hard cuttings performing best. Fertilizers and water had a considerable influence on the growth so that sufficient basal dressing before cutting was done, postharvest application of quick-acting fertilizers and foliar spray of 0. 3% urea solution at an interval of 7~10 days were recommended, so was putting up a shed over the cutting bed to avoid damage caused by high temperature. Young shoots and leaves could be harvested when the plant was 30~40 cm tall with the 1. 0~2. 0 cm of basal stem above the ground left behind in the bed for further sprouting. The barvest season was from early May to late October, during which 7 times of harvesting were there. In late November the cut plant was kept in the same bed or covered with earth for overwintering .
