BIODIVERSITY DYNAMICS OF ECTOMYCORRHIZAL AND WOOD-ROTTING FUNGI IN FORESTED WATERSHED AREAS OF WESTERN THAILAND

This study was carried out to investigate the biodiversity dynamics of ectomycorrhizal (ECM) and wood – rotting fungi (WRF) in tropical forest at Mae Klong Watershed Research Station, Thong Phaphoom District, Kanchanaburi Province, Western Thailand during 1993 – 1997 (5 years period). Studies were made in natural forest (Plot 1: dru-deciduous dipterocarp forest, dry-or semi-evergreen forest and mixed deciduous forest); ... Read More »

Relationships Among Insect Pollinators, Micro-environmental Factors and Fruit Settings of Teak (Tectona grandis L.F.) in Seed Orchards, Thailand

The ecological effects of insects in the tropics have been studied generally in terms of its impact on species diversity and abundance. However, the information is very limited regarding the interrelationship of insects on ecological processes such as insect pollinators, environmental variables and fruit settings of teak. All data were studied at five main teak seed orchards in Thailand. Observations ... Read More »
