According to the principles of integrity,dominance and comprehensiveness,the Heihe River basin is divided into three eco functional regions and nine eco functional sub regions by the method of overlapping coverage.The ecological characteristics and problems of each functional region and sub region are analyzed.On such a basis,measures are put forward for protecting ecology in each region and sub region,and strategies for protection and management of the ecology of Heihe River basin are proposed.

As a main form of land desertification, rocky desertification is developing drastically in karst mountainous areas of Southwest China.As a main result of interactions between irrational human activities and the vulnerable eco geo environmental settings,rocky desertification has become one of the most serious environmental,social and economic problems in Guizhou Province.Various endogenic processes in the geological history created the characteristics and geomorphic features of the surface rocks that are responsible for the vulnerability of the eco geo environmental settings.The resultant extensively distributed steep slopes and gullies offer potential energy for water erosion.The pure carbonate rock,accounting for 44 66% of the total land area of the province,provides an abundant material basis for rocky desertification. External disturbances resulting mostly from rapid population growth, poverty, irrational human activities and unreliable social factors, help trigger and accelerate development of the rocky desertification.It could be concluded that rocky desertification is the final result of a vicious cycle of social economic stress and environmental deterioration.

A study was conducted on effect of montmorillonite,rice straw and fowl dung,used as amendment, on growth of ryegrass on copper mine tailing.Results show that biomass of ryegrass in a 25 day growth period changed in the presence of amendments.Addition of montmorillonite improves growth of ryegrass.Meanwhile,low rate of rice straw and fowl dung stimulates growth of ryegrass,too.Compared with the control, montmorillonite increases the content of available NH 4 + in copper mine tailing.In addition,fertilization of copper mine tailing decreases its pH value by 1~2.Available Cu,Zn,Pb and Cd in copper mine tailing was found increasing with the quantity of rice straw and fowl dung applied,but decreasing with montmorillonite.Heavy metals in ryegrass in most conditions are exceeding the criteria set in the national hygiene standard for food.

The plasmid pTR102 containing LuxAB gene was translated into methylparathion degrading bacterium Pseudomonas sp.DLL-1 by the tri parent conjugation method.The plasmid pTR102 in conjugator DLL-1-B was considerably stable and had no serious effect on the growth and methylparathion degrading capacity of the host.The population of DLL-1-B declined following its introduction into soil,rather slowly in the first two days and rapidly afterwards.When the population fell down to 10 3~10 4 g -1 dry soil,it leveled off.The population of DLL-1-B dropped more rapidly and its life span was much shorter in water than in soil.The mobility of DLL-1-B cells on upland soil was poor, so they usually existed in the upper 10 cm, whereas it was much better in paddy field and 2×10 2 g -1 dry soil of DLL-1-B could be detected in soil 20~30 cm in depth.

According to results of the 1998 study on nutrient input from cage aquiculture into Luoma Lake,the input of nitrogen and phosphorus was 339 and 57 t,respectively,accounting for 27% and 33% of the total input,respectively, indicating the effect of cage aquiculture on eutrophication of the waterbody of Luoma Lake.Moreover,the analysis of the variation in water surface area and the yield of the cage aquiculture in the lake in the past 10 years revealed that the area of cage aquiculture tended to be stable after 1995 and so did the effect of the aquiculture on eutrophication of the waterbody of Luoma Lake.

Effects of Hg 2+ ,varied with concentration,on electron transport activity of photosystem,absorption spectrum,fluorescence emission spectrum at room temperature,polypeptide compositions and ultrastructure of thylakoid membrane of Nuphar pumilum DC.were studied. Hg 2+ inhibited the electron transport activity of PSⅠ and PSⅡ and the effect was stronger on PSⅠ than on PSⅡ.For the Hg 2+ treatment,its absorption peaks were at 430 nm and 680 nm and its fluorescence peak,too,at 685 nm,but the Hg 2+ treatment did not affect its polypeptide composition.Treatment with 10 mmol·L -1 Hg 2+ caused thylakoid swell and stroma reduce in chloroplast.With the time of the treatment extending,thylakoid swelled further and eventually decomposed. As a consequence, stroma further reduced as well.

Effect of fluoride on catalase activity in silkworm (Bombyx mori)was studied by adding fluoride to the silkworms′ artificial feed.Results showed that the catalase activity in the hemolymph of the silkworms significantly increased with the amount of fluoride added in the feed.In fluoride poisoned silkworms,it could not be reduced to a normal level just by feeding them on fluoride free diet or on fluoride free diet and fluoride added diet alternately.Addition of lime to the artificial feed decreased the effect of fluoride on catalase activity in hemolymph of the silkworms.

Studies on characteristics of 2,4 dichlorophenol absorption by bamboo carbon in water solution and their affecting factors showed that bamboo carbon had a fairly strong capacity of adsorbing 2,4 dichlorophenol.The adsorption effect was closely related to particle size and quantity of bamboo carbon used,concentration of pollutants,and duration and pattern of equilibration.

In agroecosystems,biodiversity performs a variety of ecological services beyond the production of food,including recycling of nutrients,regulation of microclimate,control of soil erosion,remediation of degraded environment,suppression of undesirable organisms and detoxification of noxious chemicals.Conservation of biodiversity in agroecosystem includes management of habitat(artificial and natural),species(targeted or planned biota and non targeted or associated biota)and genetic diversities. A proper management of habitat diversity and an ideal arrangement of planned biodiversity can enhance associated biodiversity and genetic diversity.It is suggested that the researches on functions of habitat diversity in species diversity conservation,influence of agricultural practices on species and genetic diversity and roles genetic diversity may play in fostering disaster resistance,production stability,ecological equilibrium should be emphasized.
