Study areas

We established and plan to establish several study areas across Taiwan. These includes:

  1. vegetation plots located along two types of transects:
    1. vertical transect, with localities at different elevations (Lalashan elevation transect),
    2. horizontal transect, with localities at similar elevations, located along the cloud frequency gradient from the eastern to western part of Taiwan (planned for 2021).
  2. permanent forest dynamics plots, represented by 1-ha permanent plots located in different types of cloud forest vegetation (we finished 1-ha Lalashan Forest Dynamics Plot, and plan to resurvey and establish one or two more).
