The AA. analyzed and estimated the distribution and reserves of soil organic carbon under nine different vegetation conditions including alpine meadow, meadow steppe, typical steppe, desert steppe, and temperate coniferous forest and so on, in the Ili River valley, Xinjiang, according to data from field investigations and laboratory analyses in 2008 and 2009. The study results show that the soil organic carbon content in the Ili River valley varies with the type of vegetation. The AA. pay special attention to the characteristics of soil organic carbon in the meadow ecosystem in the Ili River valley, so as to lay a foundation for further studies on a regional-scale soil carbon cycle
