Long term effects of xerophytic shrub Haloxylon ammodendron plantations on soil properties and vegetation dynamics in northwest China

DOI:10.3972/card.004.2016.db

The xerophytic desert shrub Haloxylon ammodendron (C. A. Mey.) Bunge. is distributed naturally in Asian and African deserts, and is widely used for vegetation restoration in the desert regions of Northern China. However, there are limited long-term chrono-sequence studies on the impact of changed soil properties and vegetation dynamics following establishment of this shrub on mobile sand dunes. In...
