Abstract The 64 most abundant species (≥10 cm dbh) in a × m plot of predominantly kerangas forest in Sarawak were individually investigated for two-dimensional pattern by spectral analysis using the basal areas of trees in 20×20 m contiguous quadrats. All species had individuals in the upper canopy. 30 species showed pattern with clumps.

Eco­ logically, the most important feature is the occurrence of extensive dipterocarp forests in the western block of tropical lowland ever­ green rainforest, that is, the mixed dipterocarp forests widespread in Sarawak, East Malaysia. Kerangas forest, which was named heath forest by Richards [J, is the particular vegetation ofSarawak. Ecological studies in the kerangas forests of Sarawak and Brunei. Borneo Lit. Bur. for Sarawak For. Dep., Kuching, Sarawak. The tropical heath forest is locally known as kerangas, which means "land which cannot grow rice". Heath forests occur on acidic sandy soils produced from the area's siliceous parent rocks. The sandy soil of the kerangas forest is often lacking in nutrients; generally lacking of nitrogen which impedes plant growth in these forests. ecological studies in the kerangas forests of sarawak and brunei kerangas forests of sarawak and brunei; neural networks fuzzy logic and genetic algorithm; wwjd stories for teenagers; a digest of the statute laws of the state of georgia.

Ecological studies in the Kerangas Forests of Sarawak and Brunei. Borneo Literature Bureau, Kuching. The country is bordered by the Malaysian state of Sarawak. Brunei has still good rain forests (about 50% of country is covered by primary rainforest). However, a large amount of Brunei’s forest reserve area is designated production forest (for sustainable logging) and most of Brunei could be degraded logged forest by
