- In this paper, the cutting seedlings of P. kangdingensis, which age of 300-500 years old and diameter at breast height (DBH) was greater than 1m were used as experimental materials, and the anatomical structure of the leaves and stems of seedlings were studied by the method of paraffin section. The pot experiment was conducted by way of weighing to control water content in soil, that was to weigh the pot in every afternoon and supplement the consumption of water to keep it about 60% of the maximum field water capacity, and the control was kept about 80% of that. The water control test lasted for about 3 months. The water control test lasted for about 3 months, and gas exchange parameters were measured. The results showed that under drought treatment, the intercellular CO2 concentration (Ci), stomatal conductance (Gs), transpiration rate (Tr), net photosynthetic rate (Pn), water use efficiency (WUE) and stomatal limit (Ls) decreased significantly compared with the well-watered control, and there were significant differences in Pn, Gs, Tr and Ls. Observed reductions of Pn were mainly due to reductions in stomatal conductance, indicating that apart from stomatal closure, the photosynthetic apparatus was also partly inhibited.
