[Mastwatch] Strangler fig densities in different forest types

Strangler figs are most abundant on soils of high nutrient (nitrogen?) content, as at Krau, along mesic river banks, and in semi-evergreen forests. In India, where they are grown for wood (!), they are established in chicken manure.



I dont know of any specialist in kerangas though, I recall seeing F xylophylla there on several occasions.

Hi All,

On a non-masting topic.
Does anyone have any info on strangler fig densities in Kerangas forests? I have a final year project student looking at strangler fig densities within Sepilok FR and we have yet to encounter stranglers (free standing figs are also low).

Thanks
