There are errors in Table 1 and the legend of Figure 3. The correct statistics for the experimental study shown in Table 1 are as follows:

Q. variabilis: χ2 = 0.125, df = 1, P = 0.724; Q. aliena: χ2 = 1.865, df = 1, P = 0.172; Q. serrata var. brevipetiolata: χ2 = 0, df = 1, P = 1.

The authors have provided the corrected versions of Table 1 and Figure Legend 3, which can be viewed here.

Figure 3. Dry masses of the roots (A) and epicotyls (B) of seedlings of three oak species germinated from intact acorns and those with pericarps removed by Siberian chipmunks.

All the dry masses of the epicotyls and roots were not significant between intact and pericarp-removed acorns for all species (P > 0.05).
