Shiyang River ecosystem problems and countermeasures
Abstract: With the increase of population and the development of social economy, contradiction between water supply and demand of Shiyang River Basin become more outstanding. Unreasonable exploitation and utilization of water resources cause the serious deterioration of ecological environment. According to the present ecoligical situation, by analyzing some actual problems of the ecosystem of Shiyang River Basin, a series of feasible control countermeasures are proposed. The article provide theoretical basis for the treatment and recovery of the degradation of ecological environment of Shiyang Rive Basin.
