Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Japan's Imperial Forest, Goryōrin, 1889-1946: With a Supporting Study of the Kan/min Division of Woodland in Early Meiji Japan, 1871-76 presents the table of contents, list of illustrations, appendices, chronology relating to the history of goryōrin, 1868-1947, number of maps, and a preface. Japan and Britain are north temperate-zone societies situated on comparably-sized island groups. The societies and cultures of the two reflect the nearby continental civilizations. Woodland is the focus of the book. The forest biomes of Britain and Japan are situated on the margins of the Eurasian continental temperate-forest zone. Japan has been able to participate fully in that botanical richness because of prevailing winds, ocean currents, and most importantly, perhaps, Ice-Age-related sea-level shifts that periodically linked the archipelago to the continent for long stretches of time.

Keywords: Goryōrin; Japan; Woodland
