We investigated bio-electric potential changes of about 120 trees in a natural forest for a year continuously. As a result, it was found that a variety of clusters, which consisted of dozens of trees that showed similar daily-changing potential wave-patterns, have been continuously forming independent of tree types. In addition, it was theoretically indicated that these cluster-formations are realized by a kind of entrainment action that came from chaos in the wave-pattern of bio-electrical potential change. On the other hand, we examined rhythms in growth movements of pea radicles in a group and the electric field pattern, which is self-generated around the root, as a basic research of the co-creation mechanism. From the aforementioned findings, it was found that the 'competition' process was in existence during the group formation activity in addition to 'co-creation' process.
