Dipterocarp seedling population dynamics in Bornean primary lowland forest during the 1997-8 El Niño-Southern Oscillation

Abstract:

Dipterocarp seedling populations arising from a 1996 mast fruiting in closed-canopy primary lowland rain forest in Sabah, Malaysia, were monitored through the 1997-8 El Niño event to investigate the effects of drought and other factors on dipterocarp regeneration. Of particular interest was the influence of herbivory and its relation to drought, since water stress is known to influence herbivore performance. For seedlings with less than 10% leaf damage, mortality during a 6-mo period spanning...
