Research overview:
The purpose of this study is to establish monitoring methods to conserve the populations of rare plant species. Size class structures and genetic structures are compared among populations of Callianthemum miyabeanum, on endemic alpine species of Mt. Apoi. Furthermore, a projection matrix model to describe the population dynamics is constructed, and the responses to change of growth conditions are analyzed based on the life history parameters to understand requirements to maintain populations.
