Particularly in the temperate climate zone many forests have, at some moment in their history, been used as agriculture land. Forest cover is therefore often not as stable as it might look. How forest plant communities recovered after agriculture was abandoned allows us to explore some universal...
In order to evaluate the consequences of forest fragmentation on populations of Magnolia obovata, we compared genetic diversity and reproductive characteristics at two nearby sites, one conserved and one fragmented. The genetic diversity between adults trees of the different sites was not...
Plant communities around natural CO2 springs have been exposed to elevated CO2 levels over many generations and give us a unique opportunity to investigate the effects of long‐term elevated CO2 levels on wild plants. We searched for natural CO2 springs in cool temperate climate regions in Japan...
We examined the basal area of two life forms (conifers vs. broadleaf trees) along elevational gradients on Yakushima Island, Japan and on two series of geological substrate on Mount Kinabalu, Borneo. On Yakushima, total stand basal area abruptly increased from 700 to 1,050 m in accordance with...
We studied the species richness and assemblages of longicorn beetles (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae, Disteniidae) in ten secondary broad‐leaved stands and eight plantation stands of Japanese cedar (Cryptomeria japonica) of various ages after clear‐cutting or plantation in Ibaraki, central Japan. The...
Soil carbon cycling in Japanese cedar plantations after clear-cutting over time was calculated with and without consideration of plantation management (pruning and thinning) using a mathematical model. The model employed a daily time step and used daily air temperature and observed precipitation...
We measured the vertical distribution and seasonal patterns of fine‐root production and mortality using minirhizotrons in a cool–temperate forest in northern Japan mainly dominated by Mongolian oak (Quercus crispula) and covered with a dense understory of dwarf bamboo (Sasa senanensis). We also...
