Density-dependent demography in a Japanese temperate broad-leaved forest

  title={Density-dependent demography in a Japanese temperate broad-leaved forest},
  author={Takenori Takada and Tohru Nakashizuka},
A method of detecting the density-dependent dynamics of a size-structured population is developed. The method is applied to a Japanese broad-leaved forest and the density-dependent and-independent projection matrix models are constructed based on the data of the forest. Then, the difference between the density-independent and density-dependent dynamics is compared in terms of several statistical quantities obtained from the matrices. Three kinds of sensitivity matrices are proposed for the… CONTINUE READING
