Diameter distribution and forest quality
|Pasin FMU is currently in the process of establishing 27 Forest Resource Assessment (FRA) based Permanent Sample Plot (PSP). As of January 2021, 59% of the FRA based PSP were established and preliminary analysis on the established PSP is still in progress.|
|3||The composition of flora and fauna||List of flora and fauna found in FMU||Flora |
Pre-harvest inventory is still in progress at Coupe 03AR. A new analysis and monitoring will be conducted after completion of the pre-harvest operation in Coupe 03AR. Composition of flora based on 2019 is as below.
Analysis conducted based on pre-harvest inventory in Coupe 01 AR and Coupe 02 AR. Total area assessed 8,598 ha.
Data for both coupes showed that dominancy of Diterocarpaceae family at an average 60% and 40% from non-Diterocarpaceae family.
Two (2) camera trap studies were conducted in Pasin FMU which involving wildlife monitoring at Apan Temukuh Coupe 01AR and pre-harvest faunal baseline monitoring at Coupe 03AR.
As at December 2020, total of 91 wildlife species were recorded. 34 species of mammals, 31 species of birds, 10 reptiles, 7 amphibians and 9 species of fish. 56.04% of the recorded species were listed as rare, threatened and endangered (RTE) species.
|4||Changes in flora and fauna||Number and abundance of species found in FMU and comparison between earlier and recent assessment.||Flora |
As the pre-harvest operation is still in progress in Coupe 03AR, no new analysis on the change of flora was conducted in 2020. A new analysis will be conducted once the pre-harvest inventory in Coupe 03AR is complete.
Currently, monitoring result on change of fauna composition cannot be captured until at least 2nd monitoring data has been collected in 2021.
