Tree leaf form in Brunei: A heath forest and a mixed dipterocarp forest compared.
Canopy-top leaves of the dominant tree species from two 0.96-ha plots in Brunei, northern Borneo, were sampled for structural and chemical analysis. Thirteen species from the mixed dipterocarp forest at Andulau and 14 from the lowland heath forest at Badas were studied. The heath-forest species had significantly thicker leaves and were lower in nitrogen and ash concentration than those from the mixed dipterocarp forest. There were no significant differences between the two species groups in...[Show more]
