内容 研究概要:An attempt was made to assess the effect of increase in mean annual temperature and precipitation on forest growth rate. By analyzing data from 77 meteorological stations and 721 forest sample plots in different faces of Taihang Mountain, it was approved, through regression, that there was a good relationship between temperature and forest growing stock in the whole Taihang Mountain. And furthermore, the effect of temperature on forest growing stock in different faces represented by Shanxi Province in the northwest slope of the whole Taihang Mountain, which run from southwest to northeast, and Hebei Province in the southeast face was analyzed. The result suggested that, in Shanxi Province, 1℃ of temperature increase could result in 3.8m^3 decrease in forest growing stock. But in Hebei Province, 1℃ of temperature increase could result in 6.88 to 8.68 m^3/ha of decrease in forest growing stock for 23 year's old forest averagely. The relationship between precipitation and forest growing stock was not very certain since the unevenly distribution of rainfall in this region.
