欢迎来到BEF-China数据库.

中国亚热带森林生物多样性与生态系统功能实验研究(Biodiversity-Ecosystem Functioning Experiment China, BEF-China)是中国-德国-瑞士科学家联合开展的多学科重大国际合作项目,是目前世界上唯一一个在物种极其丰富的亚热带森林进行的BEF研究。其目标是定量阐述中国亚热带森林中,生物多样性(功能群、物种丰富度)与生态系统功能(生产力、土壤侵蚀控制、元素循环和物种保护)的关系和作用机制。BEF-China由国家自然科学基金委员会(NSFC)和德国科学研究会(DFG)共同资助,是中国科学院植物研究所联合北京大学等科研单位与欧洲生态学家经过多次互访、实地考察和研讨论证的成果。项目自2008年1月开始执行,实验地点设置于浙江省与江西省交界地区——江西省德兴市新岗山镇和浙江省开化市古田山国家级保护区,目前项目已进行至第二阶段。

The Chinese-​European DFG Research Unit “BEF China” (FOR 891) has started a new forest Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning (BEF) experiment in subtropical forests in China. The objective of this experiment is to analyze the influence of tree and shrub species diversity on ecosystem functioning and services in one of the most prominent diversity hotspots in the northern hemisphere. The studies are carried out in the border region between the two Chinese provinces Jiangxi and Zhejiang (Xingangshan and Gutianshan). A range of biodiversity and ecosystem variables will be measured to assess community dynamics and its relation to primary productivity, carbon and nitrogen storage, nutrient cycling, and prevention of soil erosion. In parallel, the experimental approach is combined with comparative studies in existing forests.
