Spatial Biomass Variation, Biomass Dynamics and Species Diversity in Relation to Topographic Factors of Lower Tropical Montane Forest

Forest biomass and biomass dynamics were used in this study of forest structure and environmental assessment as one of the most important criteria in order to understand forest ecosystem status and forest equilibrium. This research approach evaluated the effects of topographic indices consisting of elevation, slope aspect, slope inclination and index of convexity (IC) on the live-tree, aboveground biomass (AGB), ...

Diversity of Caterpillars (Order Lepidoptera) in Community Forest Development Project of Ang-Et Village

Lepidopteran in Thailand is a highly diverse taxon. However there were few studies on larval stage. Purpose of this research was to investigate the species of caterpillar in Ban Ang-Et community forest, Chantaburi Province. Caterpillars and host plants were collected every 3 months during January– December 2012 from 220 plots in area 160 Rai (256,000 m2). Each plot was 10×10 ... Read More »
