シンポジウム S17 3月6日 9:30-12:30 Room C
The canopy is the defining component of any forest ecosystem and is known to harbour a large share of global biodiversity. The canopy community is vitally important for the essential roles in ecosystem functions and services. The canopy, however, is not readily accessible, and as a result, the progress in understanding patterns and mechanisms of forest canopy diversity and functional roles was limited in the past. With the development of new technologies and infrastructure, such as remote sensing and global network of canopy cranes, there have been recent advances in canopy science. Canopy science is now undergoing an exciting, radical change of approach from descriptive studies to experimental manipulations. There remain however many challenges in understanding canopy systems in order to make predictions about the consequences of global-scale human disturbances and their impact on forest ecosystems. Here we examine and showcase recent progress in canopy science and demonstrate how different techniques and technologies can facilitate our understanding of forest canopies. We invite you to join global canopy networks which can be incorporated into multilateral, collaborative efforts to further develop our understanding of canopy ecosystems.
