With the help of a subalgebra of the Lie algebra gl(2) (still denoted by gl(2)), a non-isospectral evolution-equation hierarchy is obtained, whose reduction is similar to that given by Li. Employing the Lie algebra gl(2) again, we work out nonlinear evolution equations with exponential terms and produce their Bäcklund Transformation as well as some exact solutions.
