一般講演（ポスター発表） PA1-047 (Poster presentation)
Alpine dwarf pine Pinus pumila, which is distributed throughout northeast Asia, from the arctic tundra in Russia to alpine life zone in Japan, is an evergreen coniferous scrub. Several studies demonstrated that annual shoot elongation of P. pumila was positively correlated with summer temperature in the previous year, showing increasing trends in their growth in recent years. In contrast to intensive studies in Japan, there is very scarce information for P. pumila growing in the alpine life zone of Russian Far East, where impact of human land use has been considerably scarce. In the present study, we report annual variation in shoot elongation of P. pumila growing in Tukuringra mountains in Zeysky Nature Reserve, Amur region, Russian Far East. Several individuals showed their shoot growth positively correlated with air temperature in May of the previous year. We discuss interannual variation in shoot growth of P. pumila in Russia, in relation to recent climate change in this region.
