The population biology ofAquilaria malaccensis, one source of gharu, and Cinnamomum mollissimum, one source of wild cinnamon, was studied in a 50 ha permanent plot of primary rain forest in Malaysia. Median diameter growth rates of 0.22 cm yr-1 and 0.1 cm yr-1 should not be prohibitive of economic exploitation, and suggest that the trees could be grown commercially. However, the natural densities were between 2 and 3 trees over 1 cm d.b.h. per ha, which is roughly the median for all trees in… CONTINUE READING
