Abstract

Data on Leguminosae in a 50 ha permanent plot at Pasoh Forest Reserve, Negeri Sembilan were obtained from the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia and were used to assess the primary productivity and distribution of the family therein. Four censuses were conducted in 1985, 1990, 1995 and 2000, and data analyses were done on the latter census, however comparisons were made between other censuses to determine the variability of the parameters. From the 2000 data, 15 genera and 28 species of Leguminosae were recorded in the plot. A total of 10,952 stems were enumerated of which the most abundant species was Archidendron bubalinum (1,833 stems). The total above ground biomass of the family was estimated at 75.17 tonnes ha-1 and the highest was represented by Callerya atropurpurea, estimated at 11.96 tonnes ha-1. The populations of Leguminosae were reduced by an average of 0.05% in 15 years, but there were 1,594 trees of new recruits recorded. Some species are found in random pattern of distribution while others are in clusters that correlated with topography and soil types in the 50 ha plot.
