Altitudinal distribution of Fagaceae in West Sumatra

  title={Altitudinal distribution of Fagaceae in West Sumatra},
  author={S. Fujii and S. Nishimura and T. Yoneda},
The altitudinal distribution of Fagaceae in West Sumatra was studied on the basis of herbarium specimens and field tree censuses conducted at Gunung Gadut and Sipisang. Forty-two species were examined (Castanopsis: 8 spp., Quercus: 8 spp., Lithocarpus: 25 spp., and Trigonobalanus verticillata), and it was revealed that altitudinal distribution patterns vary among species and genera. The species richness of Fagaceae in West Sumatra was highest at 400-700 m, decreasing with increasing altitude… Expand

Spatial patterns and habitat associations of Fagaceae in a hill dipterocarp forest in Ulu Gadut, West Sumatra
Tree species with specific habitat preference do not only aggregate at the preferred habitat, but the three ridge-specialist Quercus species showed gradual changes in habitat association, which could reflect avoidance of competition among the species. Expand
