Site Description
The Wando Arboretum Forest (34° 31" N, 126° 75" E) was established in the Wando arboretum, Gunoe-myeon, Wando-gun, Jeollanam-do, Korea, and belongs to the warm-temperate forest region. The long-term (1981-2010) annual mean temperature and precipitation were 14.1 °C and 1532.7 mm. The dominance of the Quercus acuta is the highest, and the evergreen broad-leaved trees such as Castanopsis sieboldii, Machilus thunbergii, Neolitsea sericea, and Cinnamomum yabunikkei are mixed at a very high density. The value of Wando evergreen forests is considerably high because the temperate species in the southern temperate zone are attracting attention as an alternative to climate change adaptation.
