Summary of reassessment of PSP’s since the establishment

Species composition and no. of sapling recorded

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.
3The composition of flora and faunaList of flora and fauna found in FMUFlora
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.

Fauna
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.
4Changes in flora and faunaNumber 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.

Fauna
Currently, monitoring result on change of fauna composition cannot be captured until at least 2nd monitoring data has been collected in 2021.
