Stochasticity of species assemblage of canopy trees and understorey plants in a temperate secondary forest created by major disturbances

  title={Stochasticity of species assemblage of canopy trees and understorey plants in a temperate secondary forest created by major disturbances},
  author={Tsutom Hiura},
  journal={Ecological Research},
Detrended canonical correspondence analysis (DCCA) was applied to explore the species assemblage of plants in a temperate secondary forest that was created by major disturbances. The DCCA showed vague relationships between species dominance and environmental factors for canopy tree species even when rare species were excluded from the analysis. For the highest dominant species of the understorey, the scores of the first axis, which correlated with the species richness of overstorey trees… CONTINUE READING
