Spatial distributions of species in an old-growth temperate forest, northeastern China: Canadian Journal of Forest ResearchCan. J. For. Res., v. 40, iss. 6, p. 1011-1019.

Summary

Studying spatial distributions of species can provide important insights into processes and mechanisms that maintain species richness. We used the relative neighborhood density Ω based on the average density of conspecific species in circular neighborhoods around each species to quantify spatial distributions of species with ≥10 individuals in a fully mapped 25 ha temperate plot at Changbaishan, northeastern China. Our results show that spatial aggregation is a dominant pattern of species in the Changbaishan temperate forests. However, the percentage of significantly aggregated species decreases with spatial scale, especially for rare species. Rare species are more aggregated than intermediate and common species. The aggregation intensity [...]
