Abstract

The study was carried out to determine the impact of Selective Management System on the diversity of lianas in lowland dipterocarp forest at Berembun Forest Reserve, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. Sample plots of 0.25 ha were established in an altitude approximately of about 100 - 350 m in forest areas of once cut lianas, twice cut lianas, and in adjacent virgin jungle reserve (uncut lianas) as the control plot. Four sample plots were selected at in each forest area. The diameter of lianas > 1 cm dbh were measured according to the standard protocol for lianas census. Lianas diversity of three different forest management regimes under Selective Management System showed that the number of family, genus and individual were not significantly different within > 15 years(p < 0.05). However, liana species diversity between the three forest management regimes was significantly different (p < 0.05). The impact of different forest management systems on the diversity of lianas was discussed with reference to data of other tropical forests.
