Dry Dipterocarp Forest on Sandstone of the Huai Hong Khrai Royal Development Study Center, Chiang Mai Province II. Monitoring Plant Diversity and Carbon Storage

Monitoring of plant species diversity and carbon storage in a dry dipterocarp forest (DDF) on sandstone was carried out in 2010 and 2015 at the Huai Hong Khrai Royal Development Study (HHKRDS) Center, Chiang Mai province. The forest was assessed for species diversity and carbon storage in 2010 using 12 permanent plots, each of size 40 x 40 m2, and ... Read More »

Dry Dipterocarp Forest on Sandstone of the Huai Hong Khrai Royal Development Study Center, Chiang Mai Province I. Assessment of Plant Species Diversity and Carbon Storage

Assessment of plant species diversity and carbon storage in a dry dipterocarp forest (DDF) on sandstone located in the Huai Hong Khrai Royal Development Study (HHKRDS) Center, Chiang Mai province, was carried out in 2010. Twelve plots, each of size 40 × 40 m2, were used for the vegetation study using random sampling over forest having an altitude range between ... Read More »

Variations in Plant Diversity and Carbon Storage among Subtype Communities in a Dry Dipterocarp Community Forest of Mae Tha Sub-district, Mae On District, Chiang Mai Province

Variations in plant diversity and carbon storage among subtype communities in a dry dipterocarp forest were investigated in the Mae Tha sub-district community forest, Mae On district, Chiang Mai province, in 2014. Fifteen sample plots, each 40 x 40 m, were used for vegetation survey and arranged randomly over the forest. Plant data in these plots were collected by measuring ... Read More »

Effects of Some Properties of Large Termite Mound Soils on Vegetation Pattern in the Dry Dipterocarp Forest at Mae Ping National Park, Lumphun Province

The effect of some properties of large termite mound (TM) soils on vegetation pattern (composition and structure) in the dry dipterocarp forest (DDF) was conducted at MaePingNational Park, Li District, LumphunProvince during July 2008 to June 2009. Vegetation sampling was carried out at 15 termite mounds. The canonical correspondence analysis (CCA) was used to investigate the influence of TM soils ... Read More »

Carbon Storage of Dry Dipterocarp Forest and Eucalypt Plantation at Mancha Khiri Plantation, Khon Kaen Province

The study on carbon storage of dry dipterocarp forest and eucalypt plantation at Mancha Khiri plantation, Khon Kaen Province aimed to compared the carbon storage potential between dry dipterocarp forest and 1-4 year-old eucalypt plantation. A 40 m × 40 m sample plot was laid out in each age of eucalypt plantation while four 40 m × 40 m sample ... Read More »

Valuation of Carbon Stock in Trees at Khao Wong Community Forest, Chaiyaphum Province

The objectives of the study were to determine the species and density of tree, biomass, carbon stocks and valuation of carbon stock in trees at Khao Wong community forest, Chaiyaphum province. The study was employed stratified random sampling by trees density namely high, moderated and low. Hence, the 1 temporary sample plots of 40 m x 40 m, were laid ... Read More »

Effects of Past Burning Frequency on Woody Plant Structure and Composition in Dry Dipterocarp Forest

Anthropogenic burning in dry dipterocarp forests has become a common phenomenon throughout Thailand. Too frequent fires may affect plant species composition, soil properties and processes, and nutrient dynamics, thereby impacting upon ecosystem productivity and sustainability. Conversely, complete fire exclusion, may result in changes to ecosystem components, and an increased risk of high-intensity wildfire. This study aimed to investigate the effects ... Read More »

Plant Species Diversity and Carbon Stocks in Dry Dipterocarp Forest with and without Fire at In Takin Silvicultural Research Station, Chiang Mai Province

Plant species diversity and biomass carbon stocks in ecosystems of dry dipterocarp forest (DDF) with and without fire for at least 10 years were studied. Totally 42 tree species in 23 genera and 36 families were existed in DDF with fire. The most dominant tree, Dipterocarpus tuberculatus, had the highest important value, and followed by Shorea obtusa, Gluta usitata, D. ... Read More »

Vegetation Dynamics Over a 10-Year Period in a Dry Dipterocarp Forest in Mae-Huad Sector, Ngao Demonstration Forest, Lampang Province

The objective of this research was to study the dynamics of vegetation in a Dry Dipterocarp Forest (DDF) in Mae-Huad Sector, Ngao Demonstration Forest, Lampang Province. The research samples consisted of remeasured vegetation in 14 permanent plots established in 2001, as part of an International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) study. The remeasured vegetation data were collected in February, 2012 to ... Read More »
