• Assessing biological dissimilarities between five forest communities 

      Hao, Minhui; Corral-Rivas, J. J.; Gonzalez-Elizondo, M. S.; Ganeshaiah, K. N.; Nava-Miranda, M. G.; Zhang, Chunyu; Zhao, Xiuhai; Von Gadow, Klaus (SpringerOpen (part of Springer Nature), 2019-06-06)
      Background: Dissimilarity in community composition is one of the most fundamental and conspicuous features by which different forest ecosystems may be distinguished. Traditional estimates of community dissimilarity are ...
    • Drivers of seedling survival in a temperate forest and their relative importance at three stages of succession 

      Yan, Yan; Zhang, Chunyu; Wang, Yuxi; Zhao, Xiuhai; Von Gadow, Klaus (John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2015-09-10)
      Negative density dependence (NDD) and niche partitioning have been perceived as important mechanisms for the maintenance of species diversity. However, little is known about their relative contributions to seedling survival. ...
    • Effects of density dependence in a temperate forest in northeastern China 

      Yao, Jie; Zhang, Xinna; Zhang, Chunyu; Zhao, Xiuhai; Von Gadow, Klaus (Springer Nature, 2016-09-08)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Negative density dependence may cause reduced clustering among individuals of the same species, and evidence is accumulating that conspecific density-dependent self-thinning is an important mechanism ...
    • Functional and phylogenetic diversity determine woody productivity in a temperate forest 

      Hao, MinHui; Zhang, Chunyu; Zhao, Xiuhai; Von Gadow, Klaus (Wiley Open Access, 2018)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Understanding the relationships between biodiversity and ecosystem productivity has become a central issue in ecology and conservation biology studies, particularly when these relationships are connected ...
    • Limitations to reproductive success in the dioecious tree Rhamnus davurica 

      Wang, Juan; Zhang, Chunyu; Zhao, Xiuhai; Gadow, Klaus V. (PLoS, 2013-12)
      The reproductive success of a female plant in a dioecious species may be affected by pollen limitation and resource limitation. This study presents evidence that the reproductive success of the dioecious understorey tree ...
    • Soil elements influencing community structure in an old-growth forest in Northeastern China 

      Xu, Wei; Hao, Minhui; Wang, Juan; Zhang, Chunyu; Zhao, Xiuhai; Von Gadow, Klaus (MDPI, 2016)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study uses detailed soil and vegetation data collected in a 30-ha old-growth broad-leaved Korean pine forest to study the effect of soil properties on tree community structures. Spatial distribution ...
    • Stoichiometry patterns in the androdioecious Acer tegmentosum 

      Zhang, Xinna; Yao, Jie; Fan, Chunyu; Tan, Lingzhao; Zhang, Chunyu; Wang, Juan; Zhao, Xiuhai; Von Gadow, Klaus (Springer Nature, 2016-10-11)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study evaluates stoichiometry patterns in the androdioecious Acer tegmentosum, a species characterized by a rare reproductive system where males and hermaphrodites coexist. Altogether 31 hermaphrodites ...
