The effect of tree enrichment in an oil palm plantation on the biodiversity of the understorey vegetation

This study will focus on the understory vegetation of the tree islands in the EFForTS-BEE project. The study’s primary aim is assessing the effect of tree planting on the structure and diversity of the understory vegetation. It is expected that the tree-diversity level will impact biodiversity and vegetation structure in the undergrowth. Further it is hypothesized that the results of the vegetation survey will differ depending on the plot size.
