In the tropical lower montane evergreen broad-leaved forest (LMEB), Fagaceae species Castanopsis
hystrix, Lithocarpus craibianus, Lithocarpus fenestratus, and Theaceae species Schima wallichii dominate.
The dominant trees included Pterocarya stenoptera, Liquidambar formosana, Castanopsis
carlesii, Pinus massoniana, some scattered bamboo forests, and others.
Our observations further reveal that in many cases the executive committees make wise management decisions even without referring to or following the plan; for example the secretary of one of the CFUGs said, 'On our last god-mel time we were supposed to extract firewood from Block A, but the block had a mature Sal [Shorea robusta] stand, so we decided to shift to Block C, which was dominated by Chilaune Katus [Schima wallichii and Castanopsis
indica, which are less valuable for timber but useful for firewood]'.
The tropical zone (60-1,000 m) is dominated by Shorea robusta, Dalbergia sissoo and Acacia catechu; followed by Schima wallichii, Castanopsis
indica, Pinus roxburghii and Alnus nepalensis in the sub-tropical zone (1,000-2,000 m); Quercus spp., Rhododendron spp.
After the long-term tillage and deforestation management, the original evergreen broad-leaved forest dominated by Castanopsis
The most frequent common associate species, with their IVI values, are Schima wallichii (77.89), Castanopsis
indica (26.35, Madhuca latifolia (5.29), and Macaranga postulata (4.30) .

Variation of SPAD values in unevenaged leaves of different dominant species in Castanopsis
carlessi forest in Lingshishan National Forest Park.
Among the topics are the influence of forest gaps and litter on the growth of Castanopsis
fargesii and Castanopsis
carlesii in the Pinus massoniana pure forest of the Three Gorges Reservoir area, investigating and developing eco-tourism resources after ecological restoration in Beijing's Mentougou District, the microstructure and thermal shock behavior of alumina composite ceramic for a heat transmission pipeline, recovering iron from cyanide residues by carbothermic reduction-magnetic separation, and synthesizing a silicalite-1 membrane with high-thermal stability on silica tubes by in situ hydrothermal synthesis.
The dominant species are Castanopsis
chinensis (Spreng.) Hance, Pinus massoniana, and Schima superba Gardner et Champ.
Ecoregion II is covered by monsoon evergreen broad-leaved forests dominated by Schima wallichii Choisy, Castanopsis
delavayi Franch, and small areas of Pinus kesiya Royle ex Gordon forest, while ecoregion III is dominated by evergreen Quercus Linn.
