    A community shows a mosaic structure including mature phases when the rotation period of disturbance exceeds both the return interval and the maturation time of the community. The relative length of the former 2 factors in comparison to the maturation time can be a major criterion of community stability, while fluctuation of biomass, as an index of stability, depends on the rate of disturbance relative to that of recovery. As a case study, the influence of the disturbance regime on the stability of cool-temperate deciduous forest communities in Japan is reviewed. The loss caused by a large typhoon may exceed the annual increment of forest biomass tenfold or more. -from English summary
