    Abstract

    Three phases were distinguished by the structure and the features of the populations in the regeneration process. In the initial c10 yr, the density of the population was increased by the recruitment (phase I). After the population attained the full density state, the density decreased rapidly with the fast growth of trees (phase II). When the biomass of the population approached the maximum asymptote (within 70-80 yr after the gap formation), the decrease of density slowed down (phase III). -from Author
