Abstract:

Phoebe and Machilus are rare and famous timber species in China and South Asia. The natural populations of Phoebe and Machilus community are gradual decreasing. For protection and rational utilization of Phoebe and Machilus community, ecological investigations were adopted to analysis the natural distribution of Phoebe and Machilus in Jiugongshan National Nature Reserve, Xianning City, Hubei Province, China. The result showed that there were abundant wild germplasm resources of Phoebe and Machilus communities, including two species of Phoebe and three species of Machilus, among 2 places there were 2 incremental communities. Besides, the middle slope with shady orientation is the most suitable living environment of them. It is found that four of them, such as M. kusanoi, P. chinensis, M. rufipes and M. leptophylla, they are found for the first time in Jiugongshan National Nature Reserve. Moreover, some conservation strategies for protecting these endangered wild plant resources are presented on the base of analyzing the current situation of wild resources.
