  • Relationship between distribution of large-diameter stems and topography in approximately 65-year-old secondary forest in the Yambaru area of Okinawa Island

    Takashima Atsushi, Oshima Junko

    Japanese Journal of Forest Planning ( Japan Society of Forest Planning )  52 ( 2 ) 59 - 65   2019.04

    Type of publication: Research paper (scientific journal)

     View Summary

    <p>Because large trees are considered to be important for conservation of subtropical evergreen forest, we surveyed the relationship between distribution of largediameter stems and topography, in a small watershed of secondary forest, approximately 65 years old, in the Yambaru area of Okinawa Island. The density of stems with a diameter at breast height ≥ 30 cm was 91.0 ha<sup>-1 </sup>for all species, of which 65.2% were <i>Castanopsis sieboldii</i>, 20.9% were <i>Schima wallichii</i>, and 6.4% were <i>Quercus miyagii</i>. The density of large-diameter stems was less than half that found in a previous study that surveyed a mature non-clear-cut forest in the Yambaru area. We divided the target watershed into three zones (ridge, midslope, and valley)according to topography, and compared the zonal densities and sizes of large-diameter stems. The density of large-diameter stems on the ridge was less than half that in the valley and on the mid-slope. The stem sizes of C. sieboldii and S. wallichii were larger in the valley than on the ridge. Our results indicate that, in approximately 65-year-old secondary forest in the Yambaru area of Okinawa Island, large stems distributed around the valley zone. In addition, the small number of old large-diameter stems that escaped past logging were left in the valley and on the mid-slope. Therefore, the valley and the mid-slope are important topographic zones that might play a key role in ecosystem management and biota conservation, even in secondary forests.</p>
