Chinese Boreal Forest Ecosystem Research Station
Print  |  Close    Text size:A  A  A


The Chinese Boreal Forest Ecosystem Research Station (CBFERS) was established in 2006, and located in the Huzhong National Nature Reserve in Heilongjiang province (51°46'52'' N, 123°01'04'' E), the largest reserve for boreal forest ecosystem in China. CBFERS focuses on (1) dynamic regularity of structure, function and biodiversity in boreal forest ecosystem, (2) impacts of climate change on boreal forest and its adaptability and vulnerability to climate change, (3) global change and carbon cycle in boreal forest ecosystem, (4) ecological mechanisms on the interactions among boreal forest, human activities and environment, (5) land-surface process model, parameterization of surface flux and process of atmospheric boundary layer, and (6) forest strategy of sustainable management and its ecological evaluation and management. The fluxes of carbon, water, heat and the related meteorological factors were long-term observed with eddy covariance technique (CSAT3/LI-7500), micrometeorological gradient observation system and fire-weather observation system. Meanwhile, soil respiration, tree sap flow and stem growth, atmospheric nitrogen deposition, forest fuel, carbon inputs and outputs were observed. The laboratory building is four floors occupied 1500 m2, including laboratory, office, apartment and meeting room, etc. Every room is equipped with high-speed broadband network. It is convenient for transport and field experiments with two vehicles and a field station (100 m2). CBFERS owned 4 projects from the National Basic Research Program of China (973 Program), Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and State Key Laboratory of Vegetation and Environmental Change and published 5 academic papers in 2011. Meanwhile, near 100 researchers came to CBFERS from Alabama A&M University, Canadian Forest Service, Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research, CAS, Peking University, etc.
