In the context of rural revitalization and the theory of man-earth areal system,the subject of this research is life circle of rural residents,based on a case study of Suan town in Wuhan province.This study analyzes rural residents,rural basic public and market services,types and morphological characteristics of rural life circles,based on the geo-spatial analysis method and semi-structured sociological interview method.According to theoretical and empirical research,some conclusions can be drawn as follows:(1)The daily needs of rural residents have become more and more diversified and the needs are not fully fulfilled.The infrastructure needed by rural residents includes sanitation,pension agency,educational institution and market service stores.The most critical theme is that accessibility and availability of rural public service facilities is insufficient.(2)The quantity and quality of rural basic public and market services is insufficient and the spatial structure is unbalanced.In village,most of basic public service facilities are close to the village committee,but the distribution of rural settlements is not centered on the village committee.In town,most of basic public and market service facilities are centralized in town center,so that it takes a long time for rural residents to obtain public services.(3)Types of rural life circle include basic life circle,fundamental life circle,hierarchical life circle,expanded life circle and social life circle.Basic rural life circle consists of rural settlements,which includes clustered clumpy broadband and scattered settlements.Fundamental rural life circle consists of rural settlements and public service facilities in a village or community.In fundamental life circle,residents mostly walk to obtain medical service,cultural and sports facilities,social welfare facilities and market service.Hierarchical rural life circle consists of connection between village and town.In hierarchical life circle,presidents go from village to town by walk,cycling,bus or private car to obtain better and more public service.Expanded rural life circle consists of cross-regional travel from village to neighboring town or city.In expanded life circle,residents span longer spatial distances and pay more time cost to obtain more advanced public services.Social rural life circle is a non-spatial type of life circle,which consists of daily communication activities of residents.(4)A multilevel mixed-effects was applied to examine the effects of individual socioeconomic factors,public facilities provision level of townships,location and traffic conditions on the frequency of traveling afield of rural residents.It concludes that:firstly,individual socioeconomic factors determine its demand characteristics;secondly,level of public facilities provision affects the behavior preferences of residents;last but not least,multi-purpose travel demands of rural residents,the availability of traffic vehicles(both public and private)encourage rural and township residents to travel afield towards higher-order centers.(5)Lastly,the research puts forward optimizing suggestions for rural life circle from the three aspects:residents' demands,public service and urban-rural traffic link.Realize the effective supply of life services at the individual level;realize the balanced allocation of public services at the village-township level;realize the organic integration of daily life in urban and rural areas.
