Zhao Xue-nong,Liu Lun-hui,Gao Sheng-yi and He Al-jun   

Abstract: The contiguous grid quadrats were applied to sampling for field data and the static life table of Vatica Xishuangbannaensis population, which is one of main dominant and rare species of tropical seasonal rain forest was set up, in Bubeng region situated in the south of Yunnan province (about N 20°30′,E 101°35′ ). The population was an unstable intermittent population. The spatial pattern of the population was of the contagious distribution-random distribution-uniform distribution from sapling to adult tree. The type of the population regeneration obeys the mosaic or cyclical theory of regeneration. According to population dynamics and spacial pattern the authors have proposed advancal method of managenment and administration, and ways of protection and utilization of V. xishuangbannaensis population.

Key words: Vatica xishuangbannaensis, Age structure, Spacial pattern, Population dynamic, Static life table
