Abstract

In order to investigate the vegetation response to global warming, experimental research was carried out on a high mountain of Japan for 3 years from 1997 to 1999. The experimental site was at 2,780 m above sea level, near the peak of Mt. Norikura. The main objectives were to clarify the differences in vegetation growth, phenology, biomass and coverage of plant between temperature-enhanced chambers and controls. Effects of temperature enhancement were recognized for all ecological aspects observed except for biomass. The effects appeared with variations by species
