Abstract

This special issue contains three papers on bamboos in Japan. In particular, the papers discuss the impacts of moso bamboo (Phyllostachys pubescens [P. edulis]) invasion on dry matter and carbon and nitrogen stocks in a broadleaved secondary forest; comparisons of soil water content between a Moso bamboo (P. pubescens) forest and an evergreen broadleaved forest; and roles of dominant understorey Sasa bamboo in carbon and nitrogen dynamics following canopy tree removal in a cool-temperate forest.
