    【Objective】This research is to quantitative analyze the effects of different field management measures on maize yield under nitrogen application conditions in North China, so as to clarify the effects of nitrogen application under different conditions on maize yield, and provide data reference for optimizing the comprehensive management measures of maize in North China and exerting the effect of nitrogen fertilizer on yield.【Method】In this study, the meta-analysis method was used to search and screen the published literatures about the effect of nitrogen fertilizer application on maize yield in Chinese and English databases. The database included 62 studies and 583 pairs of experimental data are to be analyzed.【Result】The results showed that nitrogen application had a significant effect on maize yield (P<0.001; lnR++=0.331 6), and the average yield increase reached 39.32%. The most important factor affecting nitrogen fertilizer effect in North China was nitrogen application rate, followed by cropping system, nitrogen fertilizer type and irrigation method. If the basic fertility of the soil is high, the input of nitrogen fertilizer should be reduced; The yield-increasing effect reached the maximum when the mean nitrogen application was around 161 kg N/hm2 in North China. Adopting a crop rotation system could significantly improve the yield-increasing effect, among, which the cotton-wheat-maize rotation had the highest increasing effect reaching 82.74%, which was 56.77% higher than that of maize continuous cropping; the combined application of organic fertilizer and inorganic fertilizer can increase the yield by 79.48%, the mean yield-increasing under drip irrigation reached 42.90%, which was 18.8% higher than that under traditional irrigation.【Conclusion】Nitrogen application rate and cropping systems were important explanatory variables for the effect of nitrogen application on maize yield. In order to realize the high yield and high efficiency of maize modern agricultural in North China, we should consider the soil fertility conditions comprehensively, and adopt a reasonable nitrogen rate, crop rotation system, organic fertilizer return and drip irrigation mode.

    【Objective】 This study was conducted to explore a reasonable nitrogen (N) application rates for high yield and high use efficiency of nitrogen fertilizer of direct seeding rapeseed in Chengdu plain of Sichuan province. 【Method】 Field experiment, consisting of five different N application rates (0, 135, 180, 225, 270 kg N/hm2) was conducted on Xigao town, Guanghan county of Sichuan province for two consecutive years (2015—2017). The content of soil inorganic N of 0-20 cm topsoil, seed yield and plant N absorption were determined at the maturity stage of rapeseed to analyze the effects of N application rates on yield, N use efficiency and apparent N balance of direct seeding rapeseed. 【Result】 Compared with N0 treatment, plant height, branch position, number of primary branches, number of pods per plant and grain yield of adding N fertilizer treatment were improved significantly in rapeseed. However, there was no significant difference in plant height, branching position and grain yield among four fertilizer treatments (135, 180, 225, 270 kg N/hm2). N agronomic efficiency and N partial productivity decreased with the increase in N application, and there were significant differences among different treatments. Under the N application rates(135-180 kg N/hm2) , there was low apparent N loss, low N surplus and little difference between total amount of N output and total amount of N input, with the N surplus was mainly soil inorganic N residues. The apparent N loss and N surplus in the second year were higher than that in the first year under the same N application treatment due to accumulative effect. There was a trend of first increase and then decrease in N apparent efficiency and N apparent residual rate with the increase of N application rates. Overall, the apparent N losses decreased with the increase of N rates. 【Conclusion】 Considering the rapeseed yield, efficient utilization of N fertilizer, and apparent balance of farmland N, the reasonable N application rate of direct seeding rapeseed was 180 kg N/hm2 in Chengdu plain of Sichuan pProvince.

    【Objective】 This paper aims to reveal the relationship between ant species diversity and environmental factors in terraced field forest ecosystem. 【Method】 Ant community and distribution pattern of Yuanyang terraced field forest ecosystem were investigated by adopting plot-sampling method. 【Result】 A total of 101 species belonging to 47 genera and 10 subfamilies of Formicidae were recorded, including three new record species in China: Kartidris matertera Bolton, Pheidole planifrons Santschi and Pseudolasius zamrood Akbar et al. Technomyrmex albipes (Smith), Tapinoma melanocephalum (Fabricius) and Carebara affinis (Jerdon) are the dominant species of the ant community. The main indices of ant community showed multiple peaks with the increase of altitude, which mainly affected by air temperature and human disturbance. Species composition of communities at different altitude was significantly different. Most ant species have narrow vertical distribution range, limited habitats, foraging places and nesting sites, and show fragility in the environment. 【Conclusion】 It is concluded that the terraced field forest ecosystem in Yuanyang plays an important role in maintaining ant species diversity. Ant communities at different altitudes have differential ecological functions and protection values. Affected by human disturbance, the stability of ant communities at some altitudes is reduced, most ant species have limited habitats and show fragility. It is necessary to strengthen the protection of forest vegetation so as to maintain the vitality of forest-terraced field ecosystem and its biodiversity.
