  • This study quantitatively assessed the effects of predation by large birds, which have a significant impact on wetland plant communities that are rapidly declining worldwide, using field surveys and manipulation experiments. Long-term experimental manipulation of the predation by Middendorf’s bean goose, which prey on the subterranean parts of Zazania latifolia and Bolboschoenus fluviatilis, revealed that predation on B. fluviatilis, increases the number of Z. latifolia. It was also shown that the abundance and biodiversity of wetland plant communities were reduced in wetlands where Middendorf’s bean goose were absent. This is important research in considering the conservation of wetlands themselves, and the diversity of their plant communities.

  • Comments by Editor-in-Chief Suzuki in English

    In tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia, general flowering of dipterocarp trees occurs across multiple families. Describing the spatial extent and temporal dynamics of flowering blooms is necessary to understand climate-vegetation interactions and potential impacts of climate change in tropical forests with high species diversity. In this study, the simultaneous flowering phenomenon that occurred in 2019 was successfully observed by satellite for the first time using high-resolution commercial remote sensing data. This is a report on methodology development that enables highly accurate observation of the species-level phenology of dipterocarp forests over a wide area, making a significant contribution to biodiversity conservation in Southeast Asia.


    東南アジアの熱帯雨林では、フタバガキ科の一斉開花現象が複数の科にまたがって起こります。一斉開花の空間的な広がりと時間的なダイナミクスの記載は、種多様性の高い熱帯雨林での気候と植生の相互作用と気候変動の潜在的影響を理解するために必要です。本研究は、高解像度な商用リモートセンシングデータを用い、2019年に発生した一斉開花現象の衛星観測に初めて成功しました。フタバガキ林の種レベルのフェノロジーを広範な地域において高い精度での観測を可能とする手法の開発報告であり、東南アジアの生物多様性保全への大きな貢献です。

    送粉者の捕食は送粉行動を改変することで植物-送粉者共生関係を安定化させる
    Pollinator predation stabilizes plant–pollinator mutualisms through the modification of pollinator behavior

    Shohei Kawata and Gaku Takimoto
    https://doi.org/10.1111/1440-1703.12376
    でした。

     先行研究により、植物と送粉者の共生関係の安定には拮抗的な要因が大きく影響することが知られていました。しかし、送粉者に対する捕食の効果は、これまであまり注目されていませんでした。捕食により送粉者が失われることと送粉者の行動が変化することに注目し、それらの影響を数理モデルで評価したのが、この論文です。捕食による送粉者の減少と送粉者の行動変化という直接的・間接的な双方の効果により、植物と送粉者の共生関係が安定するという指摘はとても重要です。この指摘は、実証的な研究への新たな視点を提供しており、これも本論文の重要な貢献です。さらに、考察において、著者らのモデルでは、何を検討していないかを明示的に議論しており、この議論が本研究の価値を高めていると私は思います。

    Previous research indicated that antagonistic factors greatly affect the stability of the mutualistic relationships between plants and pollinators. However, the effects of pollinator predation have received limited attention so far. This paper focuses on the loss of pollinators due to predation, and changes in pollinator behavior, while evaluating these effects using a mathematical model. It is critical to point out that the mutualistic relationship between plants and pollinators is stabilized by both direct and indirect effects of a decrease in pollinators due to predation and changes in pollinator behavior. These findings provide a novel perspective for empirical research, which is another important contribution of this paper. Furthermore, in the discussion, the authors explicitly discuss factors that they did not consider in their current model, and I believe this discussion adds value to the study.

REVIEW: Genetic structure and local adaptation in natural forests of Cryptomeria japonica

Yoshihiko Tsumura
https://doi.org/10.1111/1440-1703.12320

Tsutom Hiura https://doi.org/10.1111/1440-1703.12321 や 「日本列島における最終間氷期以降のスギ(Cryptomeria japonica)の植生史」 REVIEW: Vegetation history of Cryptomeria japonica in Japan since the last interglacial period Hikaru Takahara, Shigeto Ikeda, Naoko Sasaki and Ryoma Hayashi https://doi.org/10.1111/1440-1703.12357 などをはじめ、多様な視点から、スギや杉が生育する環境についての研究が含まれます。今回、これらの論文から、改めて日本の代表的な樹木であるスギについて、多くのことを学び、新鮮な感動を覚えました。一人でも多くの方に、この特集を読んでいただきたいです。


Editor-in-Chief recommends the above paper among the articles of the Special Feature “Functional biogeography: Lessons from the geographic variations in the most dominant tree species in Japan”. In Japan, the genetic diversity of Japanese cedar is high, and the effect of isolation by distance (IBD) is clearly recognized. STRUCTURE analyses showed that the varieties omote-sugi and ura-sugi are clearly geographically separated, each on the Pacific Ocean side and the Sea of Japan side, respectively. This is a very thorough review. Japanese cedar is not only familiar for ecologists but for most people living in Japan in Honshu and southwards. In addition to the viewpoint of forestry and land conservation, the Japanese cedar is also a major causative species of hay fever, so it is a tree species that has a large social impact. From a variety of perspectives, these are researches about the environments in which cedars grow in this special feature (E.g. the Open Access preface and a Review by Takahara). This time, from these papers, I learned a lot about the Japanese cedar, a representative tree of Japan, and had a good impression. I would like as many people as possible to read this feature.

は、個人的な長年の疑問に答えてくれる論文でした。大学院生の時、友人から、彼らがフィールドとしていた演習林で「シカをよく見るようになって、ヒルが増えた」と聞きました。妥当な説明でしたが、本当に因果関係なのか、ずっと気になっていました。ある現象に対する理路に矛盾が無い説明は、ともすると検討されずに自明のこととして扱われます。本論文は、直感的な説明を明瞭なデータで支持した研究で、強く印象に残りました。


Furthermore, Morishima et al. is an article that answered a long-standing personal question. When I was a graduate student, I heard from a friend that in the research forest they used as a field, they began to see deer more often, and the number of leeches increased. It was a reasonable explanation, but I've been wondering if it's really a causal relationship. A rationally consistent explanation for a phenomenon is likely to be ignored and treated as self-evident. This paper left a strong impression on me because of the research that supported intuitive explanations with clear data.

    種子生産量の大きな年変動は、ブナをはじめ多くの植物種で知られており、また、研究も精力的に行われています。日本に広く分布するコナラでの成熟種子の年変動の要因を詳細な計測により明らかにした研究が、今号の編集長の一押しとなりました。
    Large annual fluctuations in seed production are known for many plant species, including Fagus crenata, and have been actively studied. In this issue, the Editor-in-Chief was strongly encouraged by the research that clarified the factors of annual variation in mature seeds of Quercus serrata –a species widely distributed in Japan–, through detailed measurements.

  • 鈴木編集長コメント:
    Hirayamaらが報告した、コナラの個体内における同期的に変動する成熟種子生産の様式はこれまでのコナラ属の報告と矛盾しませんでした。先行研究では、種子生産量の変動の選択機構として、捕食者飽食仮説や受粉効率仮説が示唆されてきました。しかし、コナラでは、花の生産量には大きな年変動が見られない一方で,種子捕食者であるハイイロチョッキリの影響が認められました。そこで筆者らは、コナラの成熟種子生産量の制御機構として、散布前段階での種子へのダメージの重要性を指摘しました。

    Comment from Editor-in-Chief Suzuki:
    Hirayama et al. reported that the pattern of synchronously fluctuating mature seed production in Quercus serrata was consistent with previous reports. Previous studies have suggested the predator satiety hypothesis and the pollination efficiency hypothesis as mechanisms for that regulate the fluctuations in seed production. However, in Quercus serrata , while there was no significant annual variation in flower production, the impact of a seed predator, the nut weevil, was recognized. Therefore, the authors pointed out the importance of seed damage during the pre-spreading stage as a control mechanism for mature seed production in Quercus serrata .



    さらに本号には、今後の周期ゼミの研究では、必読となる文献がオープンアクセス論文として掲載されています。
    In addition, this issue contains an Open Access paper that will be an obligatory reading for a future periodical cicadas research:

  • 鈴木編集長コメント:
    著者らは、維管束植物に加え、地衣類・蘚苔類についても調査をし、地衣類・蘚苔類の被度と種数の大幅な減少を記載しました。しかし、これらの変化には、長期的な気候変動の影響は部分的にしか認められませんでした。この理由として、草食のような局所的な非気候要因が、温暖化への植生の応答を相殺した可能性を著者らは指摘しています。シカの食害の影響が顕著な日本の各地においても、参考にすべき重要な論文です。

    Comment from Editor-in-Chief Suzuki:
    In addition to vascular plants, the authors also investigated lichens/bryophytes and noted a significant decrease in lichen/bryophyte cover and species abundance. However, these changes were only partially attributed to long-term climate change. As a reason for this, the authors point out that local non-climatic factors such as herbivory may have offset the response vegetation to warming. This is an important paper that should be used as a reference even in various parts of Japan where the impact of feeding damage by deer is remarkable.

    Recommendation of Editor-in-Chief Suzuki

    This issue includes a Special Feature on Idea Papers. All of them are exciting articles based on novel ideas. Five of the eight articles are proposals for research on the evaluation, understanding, and management of anthropogenic effects on ecosystems and biodiversity, and are of great social significance in addition to their value as basic research.


    In particular:
    Saito. Idea paper: Monitoring and databasing nonnative species to manage establishment debt in aquatic ecosystems
    https://doi.org/10.1111/1440-1703.12295
    It proposes a database construction based on monitoring of alien species kept in indoor aquariums, and environmental DNA analysis. Little attention has been paid to the establishment debt of alien species that are unintentionally introduced when aquarium-reared organisms are imported and may become established in the future. However, this database can be expected to manage the effects of alien species more efficiently. It can be said that this is a proposal with great social significance.


    In addition, Deputy Editor-in-Chief Tomimatsu recommends:
    Friedman. Idea paper: An envelope model of ecological disturbance
    https://doi.org/10.1111/1440-1703.12292
    A model that describes the dynamics of disturbance by applying the waveform control function of synthesizers is unique, and is highly qualified as an "Idea Paper".

    This article describes the diversity of plants in exposed areas of ultramafic rocks in Sri Lanka (which has not been sufficiently investigated so far), focusing on plants showing high metal accumulation traits. It can be said that this is a research that embodies the definition of ecology: " the scientific study of the distribution and aboundance of organisms and the interactions that determine distribution and abundance” (Begon, Townsend & Harper, 2006). It is also a research that provides "ideas and materials" for future investigation themes, such as reporting the variability of highly metal accumulation traits and comprehensively describing the chemical properties of leaves.

    Begon, Townsend & Harper (2006) Ecology: from individuals to ecosystems, 4th Ed., Blackwell Publishing.

    In the list below, please also pay attention to the comments by the Deputy Editor-in-Chief about the recommended articles.
