Drought and root herbivory in understorey Parashorea Kurz (Dipterocarpaceae) seedlings in Borneo

Abstract:

The influence of herbivory on dipterocarp seedling growth and survival in Bornean primary lowland forest understorey during and after the 1997-8 El Niño-Southern Oscillation was investigated. During the drought, a coleopteran (Scolytidae) root borer attacked dipterocarp seedlings, primarily of the genus Parashorea. Infestation was spatially heterogeneous on a large (c.100 m) scale. Attack rate decreased with plant vigour within infested areas. Experiments showed that root damage was fatal und...
