The Phytocoenological Features of Evergreen Broad-Leaf Forest in Guangxi

Hu Shun-shi   

Abstract: The evergreen broad-leaf forest is a zonal vegetational type of humid subtropics. Analysis of its phytocoenological features realizes that, its physiognomy is characteri, Zed by the leathery simple-leaved mesophyllons and microphyllous type of phaneno. phytes. In the structure of community, there is more distinct stratification, synusia Structure is considerably complex, each layer has distinct dominant synusium. The floristie composition is dominated by endemic Chinese subtropical plant species and Eastasian elements, this condition indicates that it should be considered as special vegetational type of humid Chinese subtropics. From the viewpoint of succession, it is the relative stable community type suited with local enviroment. At present, the area of such forest is not large, it must strengthen the protection. Selective cutting system where only the mature individual tree, are harvested at different intervals better. Many economic plants in the forest are worth introduction and cultivation carrying out multistoried management.
