Spatial Structure and Associations in a Pinus canariensis Population at the Treeline, Pico del Teide, Tenerife, Canary Islands
The results suggest that competitive relationships among canopy trees play a key role in generating stand structure and the positive or facilitating relationship between canopy trees and seedlings and saplings suggests that environmental factors perform aKey role in seedling establishment. Expand

Tree growth and competition in a post-logging Quercus mongolica forest on Mt. Sobaek, South Korea
The spatio-temporal variations in establishment, growth, size inequality, and mode of competition among trees in a 50-year-old post-logging Quercus mongolica-dominated stand in South Korea are examined. Expand
Neighborhood interactions influencing tree population dynamics in nonpyrogenous boreal forest in northern Finland
It is hypothesize that both low light and soil nutrient availability causes the P. abies population decline, and that dominant trees in this high latitude forest have large light depletion zones and shallow root system to promote strong above- and below-ground competition with younger trees. Expand
Environmental correlates of plant diversity in Korean temperate forests
Abstract Mountainous areas of the Korean Peninsula are among the biodiversity hotspots of the world's temperate forests. Understanding patterns in spatial distribution of their species richnessExpand
Shoot Growth and Mortality Patterns of Urtica dioica, a Clonal Forb
The mortality pattern of Urtica dioica indicates that shoot self-thinning occurred from the early growing stage as in non-clonal crowded monospecific stands, and contrasts with many clonal plants where shootSelf-Thinning rarely occurs or, if any, is confined only to a short period of the later growing stage.

Altitudinal changes in composition and structure of mountain-temperate vegetation: a case study from the Western Carpathians
Changes in composition and structure of plant communities in relation tothe soil and snow cover variation were analyzed along an altitudinal transect(1150–1750 m) from the mountain-temperate forestsExpand
Plant Diversity Changes during the Postglacial in East Asia: Insights from Forest Refugia on Halla Volcano, Jeju Island
It is proposed that the late-glacial open-canopy conifer forests in southern part of Korean Peninsula were rich in vascular plants, in particular of heliophilous herbs, whose dramatic decline was caused by the early Holocene invasion of dwarf bamboo into the understory of Quercus forests, followed by mid-Holocene expansion of strongly shading trees such as maple and hornbeam.

Growth responses of Urtica dioica L. to different water table depth
The study has examined the effect of water table depth (WTD) on production, biomass allocation, allometric relationships and transpiration rate in Urtica dioica and showed that biomass, plant height, branching of stems and rhizomes and rhizer length decreased in containers with a more shallow WTD.
