The changes in three endogenous hormones, phytohormones gibberrelic acid (GA3), indoles-3-acid (IAA) and abscisic acid (ABA), were studied around germination and under tress of different density of Pb2+ between two species of Ammopiptanathus. It was found that (1) around germination, in Xinjiang Ammopiptanthus the rate IAA decreased 77.80%, and the rate of ABA decreased 98.90%; and in Mongolia Ammopiptanthus the rate of IAA decreased 75.80%, the rate of ABA decreased 66.20%, and the GA3 contents in both had no big change. (2) With the increase in Pb2+ concentration (20-1 500 mg x L(-1)), the IAA decreased significantly; and only under the high density (more than 1 000 mg x L(-1)) of Pb2+, the GA3 was affected by it; the ABA did not change regularly. So the three endogenous hormone levels of Mongolia Ammopiptanthus were higher than those of Xinjiang Ammopiptanthus. (3) the distributions of Pb2+ in Ammopiptanthus seedlings are the root > stems > leaves. (4) the stress of high concentration of Pb2+ damages irreversibly the leaf cells of Ammopiptanthus. This study can provide the basis of reference data for further research on the growth characteristics, resilience and the mechanism of specific broad-leaved evergreen shrubs-Ammopiptanthus in desertification area.
