A detailed study of the ecological consequences of the wildfires of was conducted on an area of x ha of rain forest in East Kalimantan.

      After publication of the first volume of the Tropical Rain Forest, the International Journal of Mycology and Lichenology commented ``This is a welcome addition to the literature on the ecology of tropical rain forests. The book provides a wealth of data and stimulating discussions and is of great interest to ecologists interested in tropical areas.''.   The dipterocarp forest on elevations of – meters ASL in Peninsular Malaysia is often classified as hill dipterocarp forest, and there are certain characteristics of it that I’m going to point out. The chief denoting feature of hill dipterocarp forest is the presence of stands of seraya trees.

[Andreas Schulte; Dieter Hans-Friedrich Schöne;] -- The Dipterocarp forests of South-East Asia constitute a dominant component of the world's tropical forests.

Dipterocarpaceae species can be either evergreen or deciduous. Species occurring in Thailand grows from sea level to about m elevation.

Environments in which the species of the family occur in Thailand include lowland dipterocarp forest Clade: Tracheophytes. The book starts by introducing the variety of rain forest plants, fungi, microorganisms, and animals, emphasising the spectacular diversity that is the motivation for their conservation.

The central chapters describe the origins of rain forest communities, the variety of rain forest formations, and their ecology and dynamics.

Dipterocarp forests are far from uniform across Borneo. Depending on altitude, the diversity of plants varies and so does their overall appearance. In areas below metres, lowland dipterocarp forests often contain many trees from the legume family and.

An understanding of the characteristics and the ecology of soils, particularly those of forest ecosystems in the humid tropics, is central to the development of sustainable forest management systems.

The present book examines the contribution that forest soil science and forest ecology can make to sustainable land use in the humid tropics. Asian tropical forests are amongst the most diverse on the planet, a richness that belies the fact that they are dominated by a single family of trees, the Dipterocarpaceae.

Many other families contribute to Asia's natural diversity, but few compare to the dipterocarps in terms of the number and variety of species that occupy the forest canopy. Understanding the ecology and.

Does it describe some sort of structural aspect of the forest, or perhaps a climatic component. To my surprise, dipterocarp forests refer to any forest in which the dominant species of trees are members of the family Dipterocarpaceae. Thus, I was introduced to a group of plants entirely new to me.

Four main issues are addressed: characteristics and classification of forest soils, chemical and hydrological changes after forest utilization, soil fertility management in forest plantations and agroforestry systems as well as ecosystem studies from the Format: Hardcover.

Many primary forests in the tropical regions of the world have been converted into degraded secondary forests and grasslands of species such asImperata main destructive agents responsible include illegal logging, slash-and-burn cultivation, extensive cattle grazing and natural forest fires (Fatawi and Mori, Chapter 1, this volume).Cited by: Chapter 5.
