3. Results and analysis

3. 1Survey to community types and evolution

Types of sequence evolution is Echinochloa and Phragmites communis-- scirpus planiculmis and Suaeda glauca connected to moisture conditions.By the transition of scirpus planiculmis, it is distributed in shallow water area and shore mudflats. Scirpus planiculmis may be disappeared with decline of moisture and salt optimization.

3. 2Relation of soil salinity and scirpus planiculmis growth indices

Determine dry weight as indices with the average height and unit area.©Through the scatterplot chart analysis, fit three times equation and composite curve with average height, dry weight and soil salinity, and show with negative correlation(P<0.01), judgement coefficients are 0.620, 0.720. The model is reliable through F test.

By regression analysis, the grow is depend on soil salinity .Through images and combined with theoretical know: Composite series we are fitting curve without exist inflection points, however cubic equation contains a significant inflection point.After analysis and investigation on the growth and surrounding communities of scirpus planiculmis, call this turning point as growth change tipping point, through the derivation of the cubic equation numerical solution for the inflection point: Average plant height and inflection points, respectively the salinity equation 0.977%,23.2.Salt content description in a separate consideration of circumstances,When the salt content is greater than 0.977%, scirpus planiculmis will no longer grow; Computed from the equation of aboveground biomass, biomass is 4.179g at this time.Through the scatterplot Fig. 1, 2 observe a phenomenon: When soil salinity available for scirpus planiculmis best, the growth of fluctuations is very large, but along with the salinity increases the wave weaken gradually, finally reach a minimum balance.After analysis and combining field investigations to explain this phenomenon: Investigation of scirpus planiculmis has been in some disturbance factors undermining,for example:cattle, condition etc,in which cattle is the main reason. Growth fluctuation along with increase in salinity to weaken and ultimately achieve balance .©For accurate research of scirpus planiculmis, we will select some representative samples with few interfere,then, reorder the soil salinity from small to large, Determination of salinity minimum starting every 5 salt content is divided into a group, salt content from each group of 5 to find their corresponding average aboveground biomass of plant height and the maximum value,and then fit analysis (Fig.3,Fig.4) .Through maximum height, maximum biomass for samples and analysis of the relationship between soil salinity, followed by cubic equations and Growth curve fitting and significant correlated (P<0.01) .The coefficients of determination are respectively 0.876, 0.829. Through the F-test, models reached a significant level with

4.4 By fitting to the equation, the inflection points of the cubic equation are 100%, 24.4, when the soil salinity is greater than 1.1%, flat rods scirpus planiculmis would lose the ability to recover good growth conditions, at which time the aboveground biomass is 4.745g.

Select those better (smaller by outside interference),From Figure 4 you can see the fluctuations and overall analysis of the data is different:Starting without fluctuation, began to appear when the salt content slightly increased fluctuations in subsequent waves gradually increased, and to a certain degree of fluctuation and began to slow, and has stabilized; This situation is likely to be caused by competition between the vegetation. Because the found in field surveys: in shallow water or the water's edge, scirpus planiculmis is a leading community, almost no other vegetation appears, in which case, it is free to absorb nutrients; While leaving the shallow waters near, there have been some other vegetation, such as: Setariae Viridis, Chenopodium hybridum producing a certain degree of competition; The effect of strong growth capacity of scirpus planiculmis is small, but weaker anti-interference ability would have been larger, then forms different growth. At last,more distance competition will be fierce. But when arrived at a distance because the soil conditions, its own growth will decline, at which point it is already dominant species change gradually for vulnerable populations. Therefore, effects of competition will not be great, its volatility has stabilized. Fluctuations not as obvious as in Figure 4 in Figure 3, is most likely because in the area of competition, other main effect of scirpus planiculmis vegetation density,

relatively little influence on plant height, so fluctuations in biomass and plant height fluctuation of relatively small.

By regression equations or images we can see: Under the same conditions of salt content, Small disturbance of growth is better than those who have been destroyed, And that they are able to withstand the salinity minimum must be above the average, Description of external noise of scirpus planiculmis is better than the destruction of scirpus planiculmis. Whether serious interference by the outside world or are subject to less interference, we can only be said to have lost the ability to restore good growth conditions, cannot be said that they had wither deaths. Growth fluctuations because it has stabilized description within a certain stage , it can still maintain this level of growth, This may be due to the long term under the influence of local soil habitats, Has been part of scirpus planiculmis adapted to this environment, improving the adaptability of the ecological, which makes it possible to also appear in the wet and dry vegetation and vegetation.

4.Results and discussion

4.1.In the study community

study area types mainly according to the "Echinochloa and Phragmites communis — Typha angusttifolia and scirpus planiculmis— scirpus planiculmis-- scirpus planiculmis and Suaeda glauca into the order of five communities in areas, scirpus planiculmis belonging to the community group.

4.2.Relation of scirpus planiculmis grow and Soil salinity:

overall average height of the upper flat bars of scirpus planiculmis, aboveground biomass of dry weight per unit area and soil salinity as a significant negative correlation, the coefficient of determination are 0.620> 0.720, respectively.Noise analysis of scirpus planiculmis of relatively flat, they have become a significant negative correlation, and the coefficient of determination are reached, 0.876 > 0.829.

Through the regression analysis, scirpus planiculmis growth we can used to estimate soil salinity content, or you can forecast scirpus planiculmis growing through the soil salinity; Increased soil salinity would limit plant growth, and the limited extent by fitting equation can be analyzed.

Determine the inflection points: In the case of certain interference, scirpus planiculmis to soil salinity 'maximum is 0.977%, height is 23.2cm, and aboveground biomass is 4.179 g; In the case of relatively little interference, its capacity has increased, salinity is 1.1%, plant height is 24.4cm, the biomass is 4.745g.

4.3.Some of the observations and recommendations for scirpus planiculmis recover

Good wetlands are dependent on the supply of water to maintain the quality and quantity of» Water is the basis , Without adequate water resources» Wetland ecology is unlikely to survive. Also, water is an effective means to control soil salinization. Therefore, rational exploitation and utilization of water resources and seeks to develop new water resources is to restore the growth of the most important. Under conditions of limited water resources, At least will be able to restore the good growth of scirpus planiculmis growth fall below critical values for the following regional soil salinity, maximum area so that you can restore scirpus planiculmis. Management measures should be strengthened in a number of protected areas to minimize the adverse interference from the outside world to prevent scirpus planiculmis population degradation.
