The Dynamic Growth and Development Information of Several Plant Species in Quanzhou Bay Estuarine Wetland
Kandelia candel, Aegiceras corniculatum and Avicennia marina are the dominant plant species of Quanzhou Bay Estuarine Wetland. In this study, we had established the four-parametric logistic equations of plant height, tree crown diameter and leaf length versus the time after they were transplanted (sowed). The development pattern of the wetland plants was different among species and locations. The growth parameters estimated using four logistic equations is able to provide detailed plant dynamic growth information for Aegiceras corniculatum, Kandelia candel and Avicennia marina. By comparison, it is difficult to assess the adaptability of Kandelia candel to the environment of the region whether the upstream or downstream. However, we can deduce that Avicennia marina is suitable for growing in the upstream and downstream of Luoyang River, not in the midstream. The results will provide scientific basis for the allocation and arrange on plant species in the wetland.
