Abstract

Drawing from 2 sets of remote sensing data (1986 and 2000) and field investigations, the ecological index method was used to document ecosystem changes in the Yangtze and Yellow River source regions of central Qinghai-Tibet. Over this period, climatic changes led to considerable degradation of alpine meadows and steppes : changes in soil physical properties; losses in soil available Fe, Mn and Zn; losses in soil organic matter and total nitrogen
