  Tropical and subtropical moist broadleaf forests - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tropical and subtropical regions with lower rainfall or distinct wet and dry seasons are home to Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests and Tropical and subtropical coniferous forests.
Tropical and subtropical moist broadleaf forests are common in several terrestrial ecozones, including parts of the Afrotropic (equatorial Africa), Indomalaya (parts of the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia), the Neotropic (northern South America and Central America), Australasia (eastern Indonesia, New Guinea, and northern Australia), and Oceania (the tropical islands of the Pacific Ocean).

 Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Three tropical dry broadleaf forest ecoregions, the East Deccan dry evergreen forests the Sri Lanka dry-zone dry evergreen forests, and the Southeastern Indochina dry evergreen forests, are characterized by evergreen trees.
Dry forests tend to exist north and south of the equatorial rainforest belt, south of the subtropical deserts, generally in two bands, one between 10° and 20°N latitude and the other between 10° and 20°S latitude.
Dry forests of Madagascar and New Caledonia are also highly distinctive (pronounced endemism and a large number of relictual taxa) for a wide range of taxa and at higher taxonomic levels.

 Indomalaya - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most of Indomalaya was originally covered by forest, mostly tropical and subtropical moist broadleaf forests, with tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests predominant in much of India and parts of Southeast Asia.
The tropical moist forests of Indomalaya are dominated by trees of the dipterocarp family (Dipterocarpaceae).

In the Himalayan-Hindukush-Karakorum mountain region from Afghanistan to Bangladesh, forests are being logged and degraded by excessive grazing, fodder and fuelwood collection, and pressure from the influx of refugees and political disturbance.
Forests in Indonesia too, are rapidly being logged and cleared often to establish exotic plantations.
The forests of northern Indochina are regarded as Asia's richest remaining subtropical forests.

 Terrestrial Ecoregions -- Northern Indochina subtropical forests (IM0137)
The Northern Indochina Subtropical Forests [IM0137] are globally outstanding for their biological diversity; this ecoregion has the highest species richness for birds among all ecoregions in the Indo-Pacific region and ranks third for mammal richness.
Forests growing on patches of limestone are distinctive and are dominated by Tetrameles nudiflora, Antiaris toxicaria, Celtis cinnamomifolia, C. wightii, Cleistanthus sumatranus, Garuga floribunda, Pterospermum menglunense, Ulmus lanceaefolia, and Xantolis stenopetala.
The subtropical forests across the northern areas of Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam and in southern China extend across all three subunits.

 WWF Indochina Programme
Still, with its large forests, an abundance of fresh water flowing from the Mekong River and a low human population, there is perhaps more opportunity to conserve the unique and endangered wildlife of Lao PDR than anywhere else in Southeast Asia.
It is not fully appreciated that the degradation of the environment, the depletion of the soil and the fisheries, and the reduction and fragmentation of the forests only further impoverishes people, especially the vast majority in Lao PDR who depend on natural resources for their livelihoods and well being.
Currently, WWF Indochina has a number of projects underway in Lao PDR, which address the ever-increasing threats to this still relatively pristine environment, while at the same time aim to protect the local people and improve their impoverished lives.

 Global 200 - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
Conservationists interested in preserving biodiversity have generally focused on the preservation of tropical moist broadleaf forests (commonly know as tropical rainforests) because they harbor an estimated 50 percent of Earth's species.
Several habitats, such as Mediterranean forests, woodlands, and shrub, were determined to be more threatened than the tropical rain forests, and also require concerted conservation action.
WWF maintains that "although conservation action typically takes place at the country level, patterns of biodiversity and ecological processes (e.g., migration) do not conform to political boundaries", which is why ecoregion-based conservation strategies are deemed essential.

This large ecoregion represents the semi-evergreen submontane rain forests that extend from the midranges of the Arakan Yoma and Chin Hills north into the Chittagong Hills of Bangladesh, the Mizo and Naga hills along the Myanmar-Indian border, and into the northern hills of Myanmar.
Location and General Description: Floristically, Kachin State in northern Myanmar is one of the most diverse regions in continental Asia (WWF and IUCN 1995), but it is also one of the least explored.
However, the lowland forests are heavily degraded, and many lowland specialists such as the endemic Gurney's pitta survive in a few isolated reserves.

Any pockets of forests remaining should be conserved and extensive restoration efforts will be required to attempt to link existing protected areas.

Tigers are nearly extinct in the northern part of the ecoregion, and Sumatran rhinoceroses that once lived here have been locally extinct, or extirpated, from the ecoregion for more than 15 years.
These populations are declining quickly--the forests are being cleared and converted into rubber, tea, and coffee plantations--with only a quarter of the natural habitat remaining in scattered fragments.
Although human population density is moderate in the high elevations, shifting cultivation and logging have heavily impacted the forest and led to widespread erosion.

To the north of the limestone karst, the vegetation is characterised by a mosaic of swidden fields, secondary vegetation, and remnant patches of sub-montane dry evergreen forest.
The forest is being steadily eroded by unsustainable timber extraction and firewood collection, and less than 1,161 ha remain.
Although the forest was heavily disturbed as a result of mining activities during the French colonial era, it shows signs of regeneration.

As one of the major components in tropical and subtropical forests, rattan is of great economic importance in handicraft and furniture making because the cane is rich in fiber, with suitable toughness and easy for processing.
Though rattan could be found from southeastern coasts to southwestern mountains and from northern rim of tropical to central-subtropics, most species are present in tropical and south subtropical areas.
The four forest types in different sites differ greatly in respect of rattan stem density, their value and dominant tree species with which rattans are associated (Table 6).

Tropical seasonal rain forests sustain dipterocarp and fig species, while tropical montane forests are comprised of Alstonia scholaris, Phoebe puwenensis, and Litsea pierrei trees.
They are also important to several species of forest plants, including trees and lianas, because they help disperse seeds in their droppings.

We discovered that at least five groups comprising at least 26 individuals survive in the remaining forest area of less than 3000 hectares.
Not only is the size of their remaining forest area very small, but the gibbons are highly threatened by illegal logging for firewood and for charcoal production, both from the neighbouring villages as well as from the neighbouring Chinese communities, and by hunting.
In order to save the Cao-Vit, FFI together with the Forest Protection Department (FPD) is proposing to create a species/habitat conservation area for the area and to develop a joint forest protection system with local communities.
