    Abstract

    The trees of small and middle size classes had contagious distributions; most in the same contagion had emerged within 40-60 yr from gap formation. This structure of the Fagus crenata forest supports the idea on the regeneration process filling small gaps made after the death and falling over of a single or a few trees. Gap-phase regeneration seemed to be not only inhibited but also synchronized by simultaneous death of Sasa. -from Authors
