Rachmat HH, Subiakto A. 2015. Conserving the previously reported extinct tree species Dipterocarpus cinereus: An ex-situ approach for species conservation strategy. Pros Sem Nas Masy Biodiv Indon 1: 560-564. Dipterocarpus cinereus (Dipterocarpaceae) is a dipterocarp species which is previously reported extinct based on IUCN Red list. Exploration conducted by Indonesian Science Institute (LIPI) in early 2013 confirmed that this species is still growing naturally in their habitat in Mursala…

Ex-situ conservation and management of dipterocarps genetic resources through seedlings collections and nursery establishment
Seedlings collection and KoFCo nursery play a vital role and support in ex-situ conservation effort and management of dipterocarps genetic resources.

Mass vegetative propagation of rare and endangered tree species of Indonesia by shoot cuttings by KOFFCO method and effect of container type on nursery storage of rooted cuttings
An attempt was made to produce rooted cuttings of rare and endangered dipterocarp and non-dipterocarps species of the Indonesian native trees, for further use in both reforestation and plantation programs and KOFFCO system was shown to be an efficient innovative technology for the successful mass propagation.
Managing and Reforesting Degraded Post-Mining Landscape in Indonesia: A Review
Tropical forests are among the most diverse ecosystems in the world, completed by huge biodiversity. An expansion in natural resource extraction through open-pit mining activities leads to increasing


Differential Responses of Dipterocarp Seedlings to Soil Moisture and Microtopography
It is proposed that differential tolerances to soil waterlogging can contribute to the distribution of tree seedling communities along microtopographical gradients through differential mortality, particularly in areas subject to minor and ephemeral flooding events.
Restoration of a Sri Lankan rainforest : using Caribbean pine Pinus caribaea as a nurse for establishing late-successional tree species
In the moist tropics, studies have demonstrated poor seedling establishment of late-successional trees on lands cleared of forest. Our study examined the potential for establishing late-successional
The state and conservation of Southeast Asian biodiversity
Southeast Asia is a region of conservation concern due to heavy losses of its native habitats. In this overview, we highlight the conservation importance of Southeast Asia by comparing its degree of
Mass propagation method from the cutting of three dipterocarp species
We developed a vegetative propagation system for mass-producing three dipterocarps species,Shorea selanica Bl.,Shorea leprosula Mig., andShorea platyclados Sloot. This system uses fog evaporative
Photosynthetic characteristics of dipterocarp seedlings in three tropical rain forest light environments: a basis for niche partitioning?
Differing photosynthetic characteristics of gap-acclimated plants suggest that, in these dipterocarp species, different rates of carbon fixation may be an important factor contributing towards niche partitioning.
Interspecific demographic trade‐offs and soil‐related habitat associations of tree species along resource gradients
Using demographic data from 960 tree species in Bornean rain forest, the evidence for an interspecific demographic trade-off between fast growth and low mortality is examined and its variation among habitats defined by variation in soil fertility and moisture is examined.
The Importance of Demographic Niches to Tree Diversity
Although demographic differences may foster coexistence, they do not explain any of the 16-fold variation in tree species richness observed across the tropics.
