内容 研究概要:We have been trying to establish an international network system of a long term monitoring for the purpose of understanding global environment change from a forestry point of view. The climax forests in Japan, especially those protected in Forest Biosphere Reserves are very precious, because they have been formed as the result of the balance which have lasted quite a long time between the forests and the surroundings. These forests not only hold various kinds of creatures but also show ecological activities which will directly reflect the changes of natural condition such as temperature and precipitation. Therefore, it will be possible to comprehensively estimate those changes by observing the phenological aspect of climax forests for a long period of time. In order to do so, however, the following procedures may be essential: Collecting the forest condition data through aerial photographs and field surveys; Making database for collected data; Long term observation using satellite; and International collaborations. It is expected to make it possible to estimate the effects on the land ecosystem, such as of global warming which is predicted to be unevenly distributed on the earth.
