Key Words:environment factors; bamboo bloom; influence
The results showed that both the average air temperature in January and in July when bamboo (Chimonobambusa pachystachys and Phyllostachys heteroclada) flowered (during 2001~2006) was higher than that in common years (1985~2006) in Yaan, Sichuan Province. The annual precipitation in the years when bamboo flowered was less than that in the other years. The niche factors of the flowering bamboo forest and non-flowering bamboo forest were investigated. The results showed that sunny slope forests flowered more readily compared to shady slopes. Temperature and humidity have significant effects on the behavior of bamboo flowering, for example, the average temperature and humidity of flowering forest were higher than the one of non-flowering forest at nine o’clock and fourteen o’clock. In summary, plenteous-light, drought, higher temperature and humid environment were suggested to induce or promote bamboo to flower to some extent.
