Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The author notices a discrepancy between the European view of the term "alpine" and the Japanese one. Japanese researchers have traditionnally reckoned the alpine zone as an area covered with the extension of the Pinus pumila thickets rich in boreal forest elements. An approach to this subject is made through the ecology of the P. pumila thickets, a research carried out in Mt Taisetsu, Central Hokkaido. The author concludes that the Japanese alpine zone is a unique and independent vegetational zone.
