Abstract

The upper hill dipterocarp forest at Temengor Forest Reserve, Perak is rich with wild fruits trees. A total of 44 species from 25 genera and 13 families was surveyed and listed as edible wild fruit trees. Genus-wise, Artocarpus and Garcinia recorded the highest number with seven species each followed by Baccaurea with five species. About half of the wild fruit trees comprise of less than 10 individual trees and 14% of the species was represented by only a single individual. Elateriospermum tapos has the highest density of 121 stems. However, this forest is rich with wild fruit trees but the density is low similar to that of lowland dipterocarp forest in Peninsular Malaysia.
