Ilex servinii (Aquifoliaceae) a new species from the northeastern portions of the state of Queretaro, Mexico, is described and illustrated. This tree presents wider leaves than the other species of central Mexico, its flowers are bigger and it is practically glabrous. It occurs in oak-pine forest and cloud forest. The species is very rare. A comparison is made between Ilex servinii and I. tolucana Hemsl., I. discolor Hemsl., I. brandegeana Loes., three other species from central Mexico.

    The Yamashiro Experimental Forest is a broad-leaved secondary forest in Kyoto, Japan. On its complex terrain, low wind speed, high air stability, and local advection are common at night. To reduce the uncertainty in measuring woody-tissue respiration at night, we used automated stem chambers to...
