[Abstract](899) [PDF](105)
Using the background materials of Chinese fir seed orchard at 1. 5 offspring in Hengfan Forest Farm, an observation was made on the dynamic of individual cone bearing number, the relationship between the colonial structure and the seed yield, cone economic traits and effect of ecological factors. The seed yield in the orchard was chiefly affected by planting density, cone number of each plant , cone weight and seed-extracting percentage. An experimental formula on seed yield was suggested. In 1995, the 10-year seed orchard obtained a seed yield of 243 kg hm- 2. A reasonable colonial structure of bumper harvest was established in existing density of 525 plants hm- 2, crown sensity of 0. 6, averag eset ting numbers of 661. 9 per plant and seed-extracting percentage of 6. 2%.

1997, 14(3): 220-224.
Observations of the fiber morphology and basic density of fast-growing Chinese fir in Lin an City, Kaihua County and Qingyuan County of Zhejiang Province showed that at the breast height fiber length increased with the increase of annual ring from the pitch outwards. From the base of a shoot to terminal the average fiber length ( L ) decreased, which varied from place to place, LLin an LKaihua LQingyuan. The ratio of length to width increased with the growth of annual rings. Basic density ( ) at the breast height of the fast-growing Chinese fir waskaihua Lin an Qingyuan. The variation in basic densityat dif ferent height of the same Chinese fir was that there was a greater change at the base and the terminal of a shoot, than at the middle parts. From the pitch outwards, the basic density decreased from 2~4 annual rings, but increased evenly and gradually af ter the sixth annual ring. The difference of hasic density was obvious among the different Chinese firareas.

[Abstract](894) [PDF](129)
In order to forecast accurately height of each diameter class, the relationship between height curve, stand age, site and stand density was analysed using data of sample stand and permanent sample plot. The result sindicated close relations between height curve and stand age, site. Height curve moved up-right with the increase of stand age and site, and was not related to stand density. With a view to solving existing problems, the author introduced the site and stand age into the height curve model, establishing 13 new height curve models by means o f double regression. Height curve models were imitated viaiterative method using data of 200 sample plots. By comparison, Richards function with biology meaning was selected as the standard model, and the standard heigt curve equation of masson pine plantations in Guizhou was suggested. The forecast equation proved applicable in the regions.
Quantitative Variation of Trace Elements inNeedles of Pinus massoniana From Different Provenances and Their Correlation With Annual Growth.
Ji Kongshu
1997, 14(3): 231-236.
Ten trace elements in needles of Pinus massoniana from 10 provenances were analysed during dormancy with an Inductively Couped Plasma Quantometer ( ICPQ) . And the annaual growth of DBH and height was measured. The concent ration of three elements was too low to be determined by ICPQ. Variation of the trace element was noted among provenances. Coefficients of the variation tend to be smaller with the decrease of the element concentration. Contents of severa l elements were negatively correlated with the latitude and the longitude of provenances. An analysis of stepwise regression between trace elements and the growth o f both DBH and height indicated that the content of Li could be used as an early test factor for the growth of Pinus massoniana.

Wang Baipo, Dai Wensheng, Zeng Yanru, Qian Yincai, Shen Xiang lin.
1997, 14(3): 237-241.
A test was made from 1986 to 1990 in a 9- to 10-year-old low-yielded Chinese chestnut stand. The post-test yield per unit area increased by 410. 5% on the average in sucessive 5 years, compared with that in 3 years before the test done. In 1990 the average yield reached 1 339.2 kg per hectare, which was 9 times as high as that in 3 years prior to the test. The main tecniques used in the improvement of the low-yielded stand included to pgraf ting for varietal change, replanting for increase of density, deep plowing for improvrmrnt of soil condition, applying sufficient basal manure, pruning, interplanting, doing top fertilizers and controlling both pests and diseases, all of which were, proved to be effective.

[Abstract](1127) [PDF](62)
A study on flowering properties in 8 varieties of Chinese chestnuts and their association with low yield showed that forma tion of male inflo rescences was prior to that offemale flowers with the former being more than the latter. On each of frui t-bearing shoots, there were 4. 27 to 8. 62 male inf lorescences on an average for each female flower. Fruit-bearing shoots only accounted for 29. 75% in all grown from those capable of bearing fruiting shoots and only 2. 44 female flowers were found on each of fruiting shoots bearers. Both length and thickness of a fruit-bearing shoot were positively corelative to its ability to be a fruiting shoot bearer. Resulting from their bad development after fruiting, fruit bearing shoots decreasingly converted to fruiting shoot bearers, which leads to fewer fruits and further the low yield.

1997, 14(3): 247-249.
A study on 3 kinds of silvicultural modes showed that planting with seedling sprouts followed by grafting in the same or following year and planting by directly sowing seeds followed by grafting in the following year could attain a well-established seedling rate of over 77. 00%. A second complementary grafting could have this rate increased to 100% and all of the seedlings grew well. Each mode can be selectively used in production according to specific situation.

1997, 14(3): 255-261.
Kiwiberry Kuimi 79-5 set fruits in mid May and its fruits could be picked in early October. The enlarging period of fruits lasted 50~55 d. White fruit hearts, dark seed coats and high brown exocarps could be indicators for collection. The most suitable period for harvesting was 15 days after seed maturation when the fruits had the maximum size and wight and a stable species gravity, and contained the most soluble sugar of 1. 195 0 g kg- 1 and reducing sugar of 3. 434 5 g kg- 1 . The protein reached 6. 5% , and Vitamin Cand organic acid went down to 532. 0 mg kg- 1 and 1. 05% respectively. The relations between fruit shape, nutritive metabolism, fruit growth and specific gravity were discussed.

1997, 14(3): 262-266.
Canned bamboo shoot residues of Phyllostachys prominens consists of bamboo shoot sheath (culm leaf) and bamboo shoot (culm). Bamboo shoot (culm) was rich in protein ( 20. 6% ) and poor in lignin ( 2. 7% ); bamboo shoot sheath ( culm leaf ) contains protein ( 12. 3% ), cellulose( 32. 8% ), pentosan ( 25. 0% ) and lignin( 13. 9% ). Dilute H2SO4 prehydroly sed bamboo shoot sheath was used as carbon source in cellulase production by Trichoderma reesei Rut C30. After 5 days, obtained enzyme solution had a FP active of 1. 9 IU mL- 1 and cellulase production residue was more proteinous ( 25. 4% protein) than shoot sheath. Dilute H2 SO4 prehydrolused bamboo shoot residues used as subst rate, enzyme-subst rate ratio 12 IU g- 1 dry residues. The yield of enzymatic hydro lysis could reach 80. 1% ( culm leaf ) and 82. 0% (culm) . The sugar solution of prehydrolysis and enzymatic hydrolysis could be used to produce yeast. The residues of cellulase production and enzymatic hydrolysis increased in feed value.

Zheng Siwei, Chen Yongfu.
1997, 14(3): 281-286.
The value-keeping and value-adding of state-oned forest assets is that of state-owned net forest assets ( to be called state-owned interests). The examination indicators should include not only the value accountion indicators based on financial accounting data, but also the accounting indicators in kind based on the data of forest reserves investigation and statistics. The evaluation methods of value-keeping and value-adding for state-owned forest assets could adopt the way of composite index. There are nothing more than three ways of obtaining the value of compo site index: 100% , = 100% , and 100%, standing for the value-keeping, value-adding and devaluing of state-owned forest assets respectively.
