      M.N. Normah, in Encyclopedia of Food Sciences and Nutrition (Second Edition), Introduction. Tropical rain forests of South-east Asia in general, and that of the Indo-Malayan region in particular, are known to endow a tremendous variety of plant genetic resources. These include species of valuable and marketable timber species, medicinal plants, and fruit tree species. Tropical rainforest occur in areas of Tropical Rainforest Climates where there is no dry season. Have you ever thought of where the tropical rainforest biome is located? The tropical rainforest biome is located in Central and South America,Southeast Asia, Africa and even Australia.

        The largest ecosystems are called biomes e.g. Tropical Rainforest Rain forests are called "cradles of diversity “ The Tropical Rainforest occurs in a broad zone outside the equator. It is a forest occurring in tropical areas of heavy rainfall. Temperature and humidity are relatively high through the . Introduction. The lowland rain forests on the island of Borneo are recognized as a living carbon density hotspot, with an average aboveground biomass that is roughly 60% ( Mg ha −1) higher than the Amazonian average of Mg ha − of Borneo was covered with tropical evergreen rainforest until the s but an approximate annual deforestation rate of % has decreased total.

Southeast Asia, and particularly the equatorial area around Malaysia, great parts of Indonesia and the Mekong.

Each chapter covers a major topic in the evolutionary biology of tropical rain forest trees and how management systems interact with these natural dynamics. This book provides current knowledge about tropical rain forest genetics and its impli- cations for the profitable and sustainable management of forest resources in South- east Asia.

With a focus on the Danum Valley area of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo, this special issue has as its theme the future of tropical rainforests in a changing landscape and climate. The global environmental context to the issue is briefly given before the contents and rationale of the issue are by: 8.

The importance of tropical forests. Tropical forests are hugely important to the health of the planet. Although they cover only about 7% of the Earth’s land surface, they host nearly two-thirds of the world’s floral and faunal diversity, and store 68% of global carbon stocks. Southeast Asia is home to nearly 15% of the world’s tropical.

Based solely on the information outlined above, the future of Southeast Asia tropical rainforest seems quite bleak - as we could see, all four of the countries that we have covered so far have suffered from deforestation due to human activities, and severe consequences have already been observed across Southeast Asia, ranging from climate change, flooding, soil erosion, drought, and wildlife loss.

GRID-Arendal: Tropical Forest in Southeast Asia and Oceania National Center for Biotechnology Information: The future of South East Asian rainforests in a changing landscape and climate. These secluded forest and jungle resorts in South East Asia provide the perfect escape from city life and are great alternatives to beach vacations.

Rainforest resorts, lush greenery and exotic jungle scenery – just the idea of losing ourselves in a hidden nature retreat is enough to trigger a serious case of wanderlust. Southeast Asia is a tropical sub-regions of Asia covering an area of approximately million square miles.

It comprises of countries and territories that are located south of Korea, Japan, and China, north of Australia, to the east of India, and to the west of Papua New Guinea.

Most tropical rainforest in Asia is found in Indonesia (on scattered islands), the Malay peninsula (Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar), and Laos and Cambodia.

Forest once covered a much greater area in Asia, but logging and clearing of forests for agriculture has.

In reality, the major tropical rain forest regions, in tropical America, Africa, Southeast Asia, Madagascar, and New Guinea, have as many differences as similarities, as a result of their isolation from each other during the. The rainforests of Southeast Asia and Oceania are under immense pressure.

This rainforest region has lost a larger proportion of its original forest cover and has higher deforestation than any of the other main rainforest areas. At the same time, more people depend upon the tropical forest resources of Southeast Asia than any other place.

The policy of core rainforest countries, Indonesia. After publication of the first volume of the Tropical Rain Forest, the International Journal of Mycology and Lichenology commented ``This is a welcome addition to the literature on the ecology of tropical rain forests.

The book provides a wealth of data and stimulating discussions and is of great interest to ecologists interested in tropical areas.''. TC Whitmore is an authoritative figure in tropical forest botany and ecology, and this book gives a broad introduction to various forest types found in South-east Asia and New Guinea.

This book is a must-have for students who want a good understanding of the biogeography of this s: 2. The scientists estimated that between andSoutheast Asia lostsquare kilometers (, square miles) of forest, more than 11 per cent of the total forest. The earliest verified evidence of our ancestors' dependence on rainforest resources comes from Borneo and Melanesia (an area of the Pacific Ocean stretching from New Guinea to Fiji), although there is a possibility that even the first Homo sapiens were living in the tropical forests of Africa as far back asyears ago.

Early humans in these areas of Southeast Asia and Oceania. The most forested parts of South Asia lie within the tropical wet zone, particularly the western coast of India and southern Bangladesh. Lush rain forests of teak, ebony, and bamboo are found there, along with mangroves in the delta areas.

The 71 ha Bukit Timah Nature Reserve contains the largest surviving area of primary rain forest in Singapore. The recorded vascular plant flora of the forest consists of at least species: angiosperms in families, 65 pteridophytes and three gymnosperms.

African rainforests are being lost to deforestation at a rate of % every year – that’s 40 hectares per minute (whilst slower than the Amazon and South East Asia, this is still deeply worrying).
