Introduction : Natural distribution of tree species can be affected by site factors such as topography, soil, climate etc. It has been increasingly recognised that global wanning can impact also on the natural distribution of tree
species. To find the mechanism of how the global wanning impacts on the natuml distribution of tree species, two kinds of approaches can be applied. One is the global level approach based on the different climate conditions and the other is regional level approach based on the same clin1ate condition. In the regional level, tlx: clinlate change can actually affect the natural distribution of the tree species through the micro-climate change which is affected by the topographical factors. In this study, focusing on regional level approach, we tried to first find the relationship
between oak's spatial distribution and topographical chamcteristics. And the ultimate objective of this study is to find how to influence the global wamling on the temperature change and spatial distribution of oak species in regional level forests.
