Towards Regional Synergy: Reconciling Rangeland Ecological Functioning with Forage Production of Cultivated Pasture
SHI Peili, and ZHANG Xianzhou
Animal husbandry and crop farming are specialized for development through a long history in the northern plateau and southern valleys, respectively, on the Tibetan Plateau. Such a pattern of isolation has led to current concerns over rangeland degradation and forage shortages with the increasing pressures of livestock

Satellite-based Estimates of Canopy Photosynthetic Parameters for an Alpine Meadow in Northern
NIU Ben, HE Yongtao, ZHANG Xianzhou, SHI Peili, and DU Mingyuan
Plant photosynthesis is the fundamental driver of all the biospheric functions. Alpine meadow on the Tibetan Plateau is sensitive to rapid climate change, and thus can be considered an indicator for the response of terrestrial ecosystems to climate change. However, seasonal variations in photosynthetic parameters, incl

Multifunctionality and Thresholds of Alpine Grassland on the Tibetan Plateau
SONG Minghua, LI Meng, HUO Jiajuan, WU Liang, and ZHANG Xianzhou
Ecosystems can simultaneously provide multiple functions and services. Knowledge on the combinations of such multi-dimensional functions is critical for accurately assessing the carrying capacity and implementing sustainable management. However, accurately quantify the multifunctionality of ecosystems remains challengi

Comparison of Methods for Evaluating the Forage-livestock Balance of Alpine Grasslands on the Northern Tibetan Plateau
CAO Yanan, WU Jianshuang, ZHANG Xianzhou, NIU Ben, and HE Yongtao
Livestock grazing is one of primary way to use grasslands throughout the world, and the forage-livestock balance of grasslands is a core issue determining animal husbandry sustainability. However, there are few methods for assessing the forage-livestock balance and none of those consider the dynamics of external abioti

Effects of Enclosure on Plant and Soil Nutrients in Different Types of Alpine Grassland
WANG Fang, HE Yongtao, FU Gang, NIU Ben, ZHANG Haorui, LI Meng, WANG Zhipeng, WANG Xiangtao, and ZHANG Xianzhou
Enclosure is one of the most widely used management tools for degraded alpine grassland on the northern Tibetan Plateau, but the responses of different types of grassland to enclosure may vary, and research on these responses can provide a scientific basis for improving ecological conservation. This study took one site

A Meta-analysis of the Effects of Organic and Inorganic Fertilizers on the Soil Microbial Community
WANG Jiangwei, ZHANG Guangyu, and YU Chengqun
In order to investigate the general tendency of soil microbial community responses to fertilizers, a meta-analysis approach was used to synthesise observations on the effects of inorganic and organic fertilizer addition (N: nitrogen; P: phosphorus; NP: nitrogen and phosphorus; PK: phosphorus and potassium; NPK: nitroge

Response of Plant Community Carbon and Nitrogen Stoichiometry to Experimental Warming on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau
ZHANG Haorui, QIN Jiwei, and FU Gang
Low temperature is an important limiting factor for alpine ecosystems on the Tibetan Plateau. This study is based on data from on-site experimental warming platforms (open top chambers, OTC) at three elevations (4300 m, 4500 m, 4700 m) on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The carbon and nitrogen stoichiometry characteristics

Comparative Study of the Impact of Drought Stress on P.centrasiaticum at the Seedling Stage in Tibet
ZHANG Guangyu, WANG Jiangwei, ZHANG Haorui, FU Gang, and SHEN Zhenxi
Nearly half of the land in Tibet is arid or semi-arid. Due to its special topographical, geomorphic and climatic conditions, the natural conditions are harsh, the ecosystem is fragile, and the carrying capacity is very limited (Sun et al., 2012; Zhang et al., 2015). Global climate change and the impact of human activit
