Conference Paper
In this paper, photosynthetic organs stained with dusts on the whole plant of ten kinds of shrubs planted in Tazhong Botanical Garden, near the Tazhong Si Oilfield, in the hinterland of the Taklimkan Desert, were sampled, and their dust-retaining capabilities of photosynthetic organs were analyzed in mass subtraction method. The results showed that...
Conference Paper
Soil microbes in forest land are crucial to soil development and the production of available nutrients for forest trees in extreme arid areas. In this study, we used FAME and PCR-DGGE to study the effects of saline waters for drip irrigation on soil microbes in the shelter-belt along the Tarim Desert Highway in Northwest China. The main results rev...
Conference Paper
We explored the unique environmental conditions and management model of the Tarim Desert Highway shelter forest as well as the important roles of such shelter forest in development of the socio-economy of South Xinjiang. Experiments were conducted in the shelter forest lands drip-irrigated with underground saline water. Our results indicated that t...

... We observed a positive correlation of soil enzymes and physicochemical properties, representing better C cycle (dehydrogenase and β-glucosidase) and P cycle (alkaline phosphatase) functioning (Turner and Haygarth, 2005;Jin et al., 2012). On the other hand, Stott et al. (2010) showed a poor correlation of β -glucosidase with soil organic carbon, whereas its activity was highly correlated with the phosphorus content of soils. ...
... The soil samples in this study were collected from non-rhizospheric areas of the shelterbelt trees; therefore, the effects of plants on soil salinity can be safely ignored. The soil salinity depended mainly on the salt content of the irrigation water and was thus related to the level of salinity of that water [22]. ...
