Study area

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

  1. vegetation plots located along two types of transects:
    1. vertical transect, with localities in different elevations,
    2. horizontal transect, with localities in different elevations, located along the cloud frequency gradient from eastern to western part of Taiwan.
  2. permanent forest dynamics plots, represented by 1-ha permanent plots located in different types of the cloud forest vegetation.

Lalashan elevation transect

Located in Northern part of Taiwan, New Taipei City district, and ranges from the top of Mt. Taman (塔曼山) toward north-east direction down to Mt. Badauer (拔刀爾山).
