Paper Abstract

Landscape change and its eco-environmental effects have becoming one of the hottest issues of research on global environmental changes. In this paper, Tarim Populus Nature Reserve, located in the middle stream of Tarim River and eco-environment is fragile with relatively strong human activities, high evaporation and low rainfall, was selected as the target area, and applied remote sensing technology and geographic information systems (GIS) to obtain the basic data for landscape patterns change of the study area in 1973-1992 and 2001. Based on 3S technology and monitored data from field investigation, the characteristics of landscape patterns change, the drivers and its effects on the eco-environment of Tarim Populus Nature Reserve in recent 30 years were analyzed. According to the landscape transition matrix, the degree of land use change in the two different periods (1973-1992, 1992-2001) was analyzed, and a scientific basis for the eco-environment protection of Tarim Populus Nature Reserve was provided.
