Soil respiration in a subtropical montane cloud forest in Taiwan
Abstract Little is known about carbon budgets for tropical and subtropical montane cloud forest (TMCF) ecosystems. Information about the soil CO 2 efflux from these ecosystems is particularly scarce,Expand

A novel host shift and invaded range of a seed predator, Acanthoscelides macrophthalmus (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Bruchinae), of an invasive weed, Leucaena leucocephala
An endophagous seed predator, Acanthoscelides macrophthalmus (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Bruchinae), utilizes Neotropical Leucaena (Fabaceae: Mimosoideae). One of its hosts, Leucaena leucocephala, isExpand

Soil fluxes of mineral elements and dissolved organic matter following manipulation of leaf litter input in a Taiwan Chamaecyparis forest
Abstract Forest ecosystems in Taiwan are frequently influenced by typhoons that cause large amounts of litter input to the soil. The rapid decomposition of such litter under the high precipitationExpand

Fog and precipitation chemistry at a mid-land forest in central Taiwan.
We analyzed fog and bulk precipitation chemistry at a cloud forest in central Taiwan where mountain agriculture activities are highest. There were 320 foggy days (visibility <1000 m) recorded betweenExpand

Estimates of Biomass and Carbon Storage in Two Taiwania Plantations of the Liukuei Experimental Forest
In Taiwania plantations of the Liukuei Experimental Forest managed by the Taiwan Forestry Research Institute, 2 stands aged 20 and 27yr were selected to estimate the biomass and carbon storage in theExpand

Release of nutrients dissolved organic carbon during decomposition of Chamaecyparis obtusa var. formosana leaves in a mountain forest in Taiwan
Forest ecosystems in Taiwan are periodically influenced by typhoons that cause large amounts of litter input to the soil. The potential rapid decomposition of such litter under the warm and moistExpand

Estimate of Coarse Root Biomass and Nutrient Contents of Trees in a Subtropical Broadleaf Forest in Taiwan
In this paper, we studied the biomass and estimated the nutrient content of coarse roots (≥5mm) of trees (dbh≥10cm) in a subtropical broadleaf forest at Fushan, northeastern Taiwan. The results fromExpand

High precipitation causes large fluxes of dissolved organic carbon and nitrogen in a subtropical montane Chamaecyparis forest in Taiwan
Fluxes of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and nitrogen (DON) may play an important role for losses of C and N from the soils of forest ecosystems, especially under conditions of high precipitation. WeExpand

Trends of two decadal precipitation chemistry in a subtropical rainforest in East Asia.
Long-term monitoring of precipitation chemistry provides a great opportunity to examine the evolution of air pollutant emissions and effectiveness of air pollution control measures. We evaluated theExpand
