Understory if dominated by an evergreen dwarf bamboo (Sasa kurinensis). CO2 flux measurements since 1994, net primary production (by bio-metric method) and soil respiration observations since 1999, plant ecophysiology since 2003, canopy phenological observations since 2004, linkage of in-situ and satellite observations since 2004. (2) TKC: Evergreen coniferous forest, ca. 50 years. Canopy is dominated by Cryptomeria japonica and Chamaecyparis obtusa. CO2, water and heat flux measurements since 2005, net promary production (by bio-metric method) and soil respiration observations since 2005, canopy phenological observations since 2005. Both sites are also contributing to AsiaFlux.
