Coastal East and Southeast Asia are characterised by means of rainy transforming into seasons, and species-rich woodland ecosystems improve through the latitudinal and altitudinal gradients. during this zone, the worldwide swap affects on Terrestrial Ecosystems in Monsoon Asia (TEMA) venture used to be performed as a distinct contribution to the foreign venture worldwide swap and Terrestrial Ecosystems. TEMA aimed to combine wooded area atmosphere methods, from leaf body structure to meteorological funds and prediction of long term switch of crops composition and structure via demographic strategies. particular realization used to be given to watershed approaches, the place woodland atmosphere metabolism impacts the homes and biogeochemical budgets of freshwater ecosystems, and the place rivers, wetlands, and lakes are topic to direct and oblique results of environmental swap. This quantity offers the scaling-up inspiration for higher knowing of atmosphere functioning.

Stand dynamics during 1995–1999 were analysed by Aiba and Kitayama (2002). In this paper, we study variation in stand dynamics (turnover rates as well as growth rates) among the nine plots over 8 years (1995–2003), and examine the relationship with productivity. On Mount Kinabalu, a severe drought occurred in 1997–1998 in association with the El Nin˜o–Southern Oscillation event, and growth rates and mortality were significantly affected by the drought (Aiba and Kitayama 2002). It is necessary to consider the impact of the drought in order to study stand dynamics (Sheil 1995; Phillips 1995).
