To determine whether forest trees are differentiated in terms of reproductive schedules among populations under different environmental conditions within a species, we studied three populations of Japanese subalpine snow-fir, Abies mariesii, located at different altitudes (1000, 1250 and 1400 m) on Mt. Hakkoda in northern Japan. We examined life-history schedules, including lifetime growth trajectories, reproductive maturation timing and size-dependent resource allocation to reproduction.
