  • A collaboration study / research with Leibniz-IZW has been initiated and expected to commence once MoU has been signed. Fieldwork shall commence in March/April 2019.
6 Changes in Flora and Fauna Number and abundance of species found in FMU
  • Timber species composition slightly differ in the composition of dipterocarp and non-dipterocarp (54% dipterocarp and 46% non-dipterocarp for Coupe 12AR (I), 60% dipterocarp and 40% non-dipterocarp for Coupe 12 AR (II)).
  • Study on changes of fauna species will only available after multi-year analysis.
Comparison between earlier and recent assessment.
  • Changes of flora and fauna will only be available after multi-year analysis.
