    Grassland ecosystem is a very important terrestrial ecosystem in China.It provides not only a large number of economic products but also many ecological services for mankind.Estimation of the grassland ecosystem services values is urgently required for administration of the precious natural resource.This paper intends to propose a practical method to estimate grassland ecosystem services value using remote sensing data.First of all,the relationship between the value of organic matter production,O2 released and CO2 fixed,nutrient recycle,and environmental pollution cleaning and the net primary productivity(NPP)was established using various methods such as market value,substitution,shadow price,opportunity cost.Consequently,the relationship between the value of soil erosion control and the quantity of soil conservation,which can be calculated from vegetation coverage fraction,was also constructed.The value of water conservation function was calculated by vegetation coverage fraction.Then,a net primary productivity(NPP)model of grassland based on photosynthesis efficiency model was proposed,in which all the parameters were retrieved from EOS/MODIS data.The method of determination of vegetation coverage fraction was also introduced.Finally,the value of grassland ecosystem services of China in 2003 was computed using the proposed method.Our results indicated that spatial variation of the ecosystem services value per unit area was consistent with the distribution of grassland types.The service value per unit area varied greatly with different grassland types.Shrub-meadow with sparse trees had the highest services value of 990259yuan/km2(RMB).The service value of upland meadow is also high up to 968586yuan/km2(RMB).Alpine desert steppe had the lowest services value of 56202yuan/km2(RMB).Alpine desert also had a low services value of 89952yuan/km2(RMB).Total service values of Chinese grassland ecosystem in 2003 was 1.70503×1012yuan(RMB).Different grassland types had different total services values depending on their areas.Alpine meadow had the largest amount of total value of 4.05998×1011yuan,accounting for 23.81% of the total services values of the entire Chinese grassland ecosystem.The services value was also varied with different ecosystem functions.The released O2 and the fixed CO2 contributed the highest percentage to the total service values being 54.06%.The contribution of organic matter production,soil erosion control,nutrient recycle,and water storage was 19.66%,14.28%,5.63% and 4.20%,respectively.

    With rapid economic development and population growth,land use and land cover change(LUCC)have great effects on hydrological processes.The research in this field has been the focus of attention and the international frontier.In this paper,the study methods of hydrological response to land use and land cover change were analyzed,including experimental method,time series analysis method of hydrological characteristic parameters,hydrological model method and combination of multi-methods,and its progress was reviewed and discussed from points of view of driving forces of LUCC,such as afforestation and deforestation,urban and agricultural development as well as soil and water conservation.Some conclusions of this paper were drawn as follows:①Imperious area extension driven by rapid urban development could change the urban water balance,and then increase runoff coefficient,flood peak flow and its frequency,and contrarily decrease the ground recharge,but due to different levels of urbanization development,hydrological effects would make a certain difference.②Studies on hydrological response to soil and water conservation generally showed that,the underlying surface conditions alteration by soil and water conservation could decrease annual runoff and flood peak flow,and increase infiltration and runoff in the non-flood season,but due to different geographic locations,climatic conditions and so on,hydrological effect of soil and water conservation in different regions or watersheds also showed a certain difference.③In the respect of hydrological response to afforestation and deforestation as well as agricultural development,the results made a great difference due to the diversities of spatial scale,regional location,climatic conditions,and study objectives.Therefore,many affecting factors need to be considered comprehensively,and hydrological response to land use and land cover change should be assessed correctly so as to support scientific foundations for rational allocation and sustainable development of land and water resources.

    Quantitative Analysis of Ecological Effects of General Land Use Planning Based on Ecological Footprint—A Case Study in Langfang City
    FU Hai-yue, LI Man-chun, MAO Liang, LIU Yong-xue
    2007, 22 (2):  225-235.  doi: 10.11849/zrzyxb.2007.02.009

    Evaluating human effects on the ecosystem is a critical issue in the process of general land use planning.In recent years,Ecological Footprint(EF)has been an widely accepted tool to quantify this kind of assessment in many fields.However,only few studies have addressed the problem of EF in the realm of land use general planning.Taking Langfang city as a case study,this paper develops an approach to quantitatively analyze the trends of EF and BC over the planning period in general land use planning and to evaluate the ecological effects of the land use general planning. In this paper,we introduced the concepts of change rates and scissors difference to indicate the tendencies of EF and BC time series.We calculated the change rates and scissors difference of per capita EF and BC over planning period of general land use planning(1997-2010),investigated the developing process during the past eight years(1997-2004),and predicted the future tendency in the following six years(2005-2010).Based on these,we assessed the possible effects of general land use planning(1997-2010) on the local ecosystem,and attempt to present suggestions for the following general land use planning(2005-2020). The results show that: 1)In Langfang city,trends of the per capita EF and BC are on the way round,and the ecological deficit enhanced from 1997 to 2010.The per capita EF increased from 1.583 ha in 1997 to 2.823 ha in 2010,while the per capita BC decreased over years from 0.563 ha in 1997 to 0.414 ha in 2010.Meanwhile,the ecological deficit in 2010 will be 2.619 times greater than that of in 1997.2)In Langfang city,the scissors difference between the trends of EF and BC time series had been decreasing until 2000,it began to rise after year 2000.This growth direction is not what we expected,with the aspect of ecological equilibrium.3)The general land use planning(1997-2010)of Langfang city had produced some positive effects on the local ecosystem.Thus,the ecological deficit at 2000 was lower than the expected,and the ecological difference had also been reduced during 1997-2004.But the expected biological capacity at 2010 can hardly be realized following this trend.The direction of reducing the ecological deficit by extensive land use is against the sustainable development.The general planning(2005-2020) of Langfang city should pay more emphasis on the land use spatial layout not rather than on the land use quantities layout and strengthen scientific,economical,intensive land use.

    Developing bio-energy is a rational choice for solving problems of energy shortage and environmental pollution.As bio-energy is contained in biomass,and biomass has close relationship with characteristics of physiography,the suitability of developing bio-energy in a certain region must be evaluated according to its regional speciality.Based on the previous researches on solar energy,biomass,net primary productivity(NPP) of Tibet,accounting about the conversion process from solar energy to bio-energy and bio-energy sustainable utilization,the concept of usable productivity is presented.In order to keep biome community succession in sequence and restore endangered biome community,human being should not use up NPP.Under the condition of the stability and safety of biome community,part of NPP that human being can utilize is called Usable Productivity.Usable productivity can be used as biomaterial and bio-energy resource.With the help of these concepts,the quantity of bio-energy resource of Tibet is estimated.After analyzed the resource and environment of Tibet,the author finds out that the gross bio-energy resources is huge(24 million tce p.a.)for Tibet's expansion,while the average productivity of bio-energy resources is small(0.2tce per ha.in a year)in Tibet;that the environment is fragile,and the relationship between bio-energy utilization and environment is strain.Accordingly,the strategy of finite utilization according to different geographical characteristics is put forward.The core of the strategy is to balance the bio-energy exploiting and environmental protection,and the key of the strategy is to define the appropriate role of bio-energy in the whole energy consumption.Three measures are helpful to implement the strategy:1) to ascertain the useable productivity scientifically and control the quantity and intensity of biomass that is exploited and used;2)to prorate the quantity of biomaterial and bio-energy in the useable productivity;and 3) to suit measures in line with local conditions.

    The climate change and its induced ecosystem change have gotten more and more attentions from scientists and societies.The past researches showed that the temperature and precipitation variations in southwestern mountainous area of China were different from those in the other parts of China.So the climate change and its impacts on ecosystem in southwestern China is still a question to be understood.In this study,the spatial distributions and interannual variations of net primary productivity(NPP)were simulated by the atmosphere-vegetation interaction model(AVIm2)in southwestern China.The responses of forests,shrub lands,grasslands and crop lands to temperature and precipitation change during 1980 to 2000 were discussed.The study indicates that the spatial distribution of vegetation NPP in southwestern China is positively correlated with the pattern of precipitation and negatively correlated with that of elevation.The total vegetation NPP of southwestern part increased in the 20 years period.More detailed analyses show that variation of plant function type's NPP are different due to precipitation in the areas where they are located varies.In forest area,where the mean temperature rise rate is 0.037℃ per year and the precipitation has no obvious trend,the simulated annual NPP does not show any increase or decrease trend.In shrub lands and grasslands area,where the temperature rise rate is 0.040℃ and 0.034℃ per year,individually,and the precipitations increased,both the simulated shrub and grass NPP show significant increase tendency.

    This paper aims at discussing the concept and connotation and evaluating index system of agricultural water resource vulnerability in hilly area of southern China.First,based on the analysis of the research result of vulnerability in the field of resource and environmental science,a concept of vulnerability of agricultural water resource which represents the characteristic of agricultural water resource system in hilly area of southern China is formed.Then the connotation about the vulnerability of agricultural water resource is probed.It is believed that the vulnerability of agricultural water resource includes two aspects of water quality and quantity,which consist of natural vulnerability,artificial vulnerability and burdening vulnerability.Finally,an assessment index system which concludes 12 indexes is built to express the vulnerability of agricultural water resource in the aspect of water quantity in Hengyang Basin which represents the typical hilly area in southern China.And the vulnerability degrees of 7 counties in Hengyang Basin are calculated by fuzzy matter element analysis method,the results show that vulnerability of five counties out of the total is serious.It is found by validation that the assessment results are consistent with the practical situation,indicating that the index system and the assessment method are credible.

    Land use drivers that best describe land use patterns quantitatively are often selected through regression analysis.A problem using conventional statistical methods in spatial land use analysis is that these methods assume the data to be statistically independent while spatial land use data have the tendency to be dependent,known as spatial autocorrelation.Although several techniques are available to deal with spatial autocorrelation,only a few studies of land use modeling were seen using them.As a result,spatial statistical method was applied in this study to derive the spatial distribution of land use.Fujian Province,in Southeast China,was selected as the study area.In this paper,Moran's I are used to describe spatial autocorrelation of dependent and independent variables and spatial autoregressive models which incorporate both regression and spatial autocorrelation were constructed.Six land use types and their 27 candidate driving force variables representing bio-geophysical and socio-economic conditions were selected.The smallest spatial units of investigation were 10000 by 10000 meter cells.Land use types and their candidate driving force data were collected and attributed to these cells.All attribute data for the cells of he base resolution were aggregated to higher artificial aggregation levels through averaging the data.The spatial autocorrelation land use types and spatial regression models that incorporate spatial autocorrelation were analyzed at multiple resolutions. Results show that five main land use types except unused land and all candidate land use drivers show positive spatial autocorrelation which decreases gradually with distance.Variables of slope and aspect factors and distance to town or city show weak spatial autocorrelation,while other candidate diving force variables show strong spatial autocorrelation which extend to over 60-220km.The spatial pattern of land use type is similar to its corresponding driving force variables which show that land use is the direct or indirect consequence of its driving forces.It is also shown that the occurrence of spatial autocorrelation is highly dependent on the aggregation level,higher aggregation level shows higher Moran's I. The residuals of the standard linear regression are less auto-correlated than the original data which show the driving factors used in the regression equation capture part of the pattern.While the residuals of the ordinary regression model also show positive autocorrelation,which indicates that the standard multiple linear regression model cannot capture all spatial dependency in the land use data.The visual presentation of the residuals of the models provides a clear insight in the difference between the two models.Clear spatial pattern was seen in the residuals of the standard linear regression while the residuals of the spatial model were randomly distributed and show no spatial autocorrelation. Spatial autoregressive models yield residuals without spatial autocorrelation and have a better goodness-of-fit.The spatial autoregressive model is statistically sound in the presence of spatially dependent data in contrast with the standard linear model.By using spatial models a part of the variance probably 25%-68% is explained by neighboring values.As a result,the estimated regression coefficients of the variables become smaller and the significance of the parameters also decreases in the spatial autoregressive model.But this is a way to incorporate spatial interactions that cannot be captured by the independent variables.
