Abstract

Dwarf bamboo is a major understory vegetation in Japanese forests, and is recognized to be an ecological filter for the seedlings of overstory tree species. However, the effects of dwarf bamboo cover on the entire understory tree community, including shrubs, have not been fully assessed. Using spatial analysis by distance indices (SADIE), we analyzed the spatial distributions of, and the spatial associations between, Sasa palmata cover and understory trees (diameter at breast height
