    Abstract

    Nature of gap formation was studied in a climax beech forest at Mt. Moriyoshi, Akita Prefecture, NE Japan. Number of gap-making trees per gap was 1-5, 2.0 on the average. On average, 0.55-1.1 canopy trees ha-1 died, and a gap area of 41-82 m2 ha-1 was made annually. The turnover time of the canopy layer in the forest was 100-200 yr. -from Author
