The annual ecological investigation data of desert vegetation with different desert types in the Heihe River Basin (2012)

The year-end ecological investigation was conducted in the late September and early October when plants stopped growing.

There are 8 investigation and observation fields, they are: piedmont desert, piedmont Gobi, desert in the middle, Gobi in the middle reaches, desert in the middle reaches, downstream desert, downstream Gobi, and downstream desert, the size of each filed is 40m×40m.
