Conservation Biological Study on Eremosparton songoricum


Abstract:
Rare species and their conservation in severe ecosystems have attracted more and more attention in recent years. Eremosparton songoricum (Litv.) Vass. is a rare woody shrub distributed in the mobile-dune areas in the Gurbantonggut Desert, Xinjiang, China. A conservation biological study on E. songoricum was carried out to examine the threatened ecological process and characteristics during the period from 2003 to 2009.The paper reviewed thoroughly the biological characteristics of tendency to rare status, geographic distribution, habitat conditions, population dynamics, features of sexual reproduction and asexual propagation, and genetic diversity and variation. In addition, some strategies and measures were put forward for conserving E. songoricum.

Key words:biological conservation,Eremosparton songoricum,rare species,sand dune,population dynamics,reproductive biology,genetic diversity
