    Variation in flower traits within a population and its factors were investigated using Adonis ramosa, focusing on (1) differences in the amount of resources possessed by individuals and (2) differences in flowering days. The survey was conducted in a population located in Tadami Town. Plant size, number of petals, number of stamens, number of ovules,three kinds of flower area size, male fitness (number of stamens x freqency of insect visit), and female fitness (number of mature seeds) were recorded for 84 flowers of 71 individuals. (1) The bigger individuals had larger flowers with more stamens and ovules. Of the flower area sizes, the display size was related to the male fitness and the size of petals overlap area was related to the male and female fitness. (2) As a result of comparison of individuals in which only one flower was produced in either the first or second half of the flowering period of the population, excluding the effect of individual size, the first flowering group had many stamens and ovules, but the number of insect visits and the fertility rate were higher in the late flowering group. Since A. ramosa has only a few flowers, the flower traits are adjusted at the individual flower level to increase fitness. In addition, the flowering day and the amount of resources that can be allocated to reproduction differ among individuals due to differences in the environment and other factors. These factors may contribute the intra-population variation in flower traits, which observed in the A. ramosa population.

  • Phylogenetic singnal in the topographic niche of trees: Current and historical significance of habitat structure on the species arrangement pattern within East Asian rugged forests

    Topography often promotes habitat heterogeneity and is a major factor in fine-grained changes in vegetation. Especially in temperate mountainous regions of East Asia, the distribution of tree species is largely explained by topographic niche differentiation. Because species niche is at least partially a historical product through the evolution of functional traits, phylogenetic signals are expected in the topographic arrangement pattern of species, although this has not been fully investigated. Thus, we examined common temperate trees in a 306 ha watershed on Mt Tanzawa, central Japan. The topographic niche position of each species was explained with two principle component analysis (PCA) axes, which aligned with the topographic structure of the watershed. High scores on PC1 reflected lower elevations, steeper slopes, and nearby valleys. Higher scores on PC2 indicated thicker soil, more south-facing slopes, slighter slope inclinations, and nearby valleys. The former indicated the species were aligned on a habitat gradient of land-surface instability, for which the gradient is typical under the current geological conditions. The latter indicated that a niche axis for resource availability relating to water, nutrients, and light or heat existed. A phylogenetic signal, identified by Pagel’s λ and the Mantel test, was detected for PC2 scores. However, the species arrangement along PC1 was independent of phylogeny. Our results suggested that the topographic niche of tree species in this area is caused by both relatively recently derived traits regarding adaptation to unstable land surfaces and conservative traits derived through plant evolution.
