This notion has been called into question not only by evidence of the early role of forest products in the region's thriving international trade, but also by the discoveries of social scientists documenting local people's management techniques, including planting, protecting, and encouraging various species of Dipterocarps
and other difficult to grow forest trees such as Borneo ironwood (Eusideroxylon zwagerii) and damar (Shorea, spp.).
for the Malayan dipterocarp
tree Garcinia scortechinii (Thomas, 1997),
Large emergents rise high above the main canopy in all the world's main rainforest regions, but different taxa dominate in different places: in southeast Asia large dipterocarp
trees are particularly important emergents, but in other regions the emergents mainly belong to other families.
The influence of vertebrate predation on seed and seedling survival suggests that foraging behavior by terrestrial vertebrate seed predators may cause directional and/or stabilizing selection for synchronous, interspecific supra-annual dipterocarp
seed production across forest regions in Kalimantan.
The botanical sites contain a variety of flora and fauna that ranges over four climate zones from rich lowland dipterocarp
forest to alpine meadow plants, and finally the stunted bushes of the summit zone.
In the campus region with academic buildings and residences, some dipterocarp
trees such as Shorea siamensis are growing by the B2 teaching building.
Today, it is a thriving forest with 226 native plant species, 34 of which are dipterocarp
or hardwood trees native to the Philippines.
Within the primary dipterocarp
forest of Ulu Temburong National Park lies the Kuala Belalong Field Studies Centre (KBFSC) (Fig.
forest revealed 17 phylogenetic lineages spread over 69 species primarily belonging to the /russula-lactarius, /tomentella-thelephora, /sordariales, /sebacina and /cantharellus lineages.
PEF Conservation Director Jayson Ibanez said that they were able to document 171 vertebrate species, mostly endemic, which are living in the dipterocarp
forests found in the lowland areas.
seedlings really partition tropical rain forest gaps?
