Wetland studies

Currently several studies are being conducted in wetlands in Hakkoda Mountains, Aomori prefecture, Japan.

C. Kamiyama is examining competition among coexsiting plants in wetlants located in different altitudes. She tries to find a inter-site difference caused by different temperatures.

S. Oikawa studies the effect of elevated temperature on the plant growth by setting up OTCs (open top chambers).
