MNS Flora Group Sat Afternoon 2-Session Get Together
OPEN TO PUBLIC   Session 1 by Dr Jean Weber

CONSERVATION OF DIPTEROCARPACEAE & OTHER LOCAL TREE SPECIES IN THE KLANG VALLEY   Most of the Dipterocarpaceae species that dominated and structured Southeast Asian lowland rainforests are currently endangered.   Obstacles for the conservation of Dipterocarpaceae can be found in their particular ecology as well as in the limits of conservation approaches that paradoxically focus on the management of natural environments rather than the integration of man-made landscapes. The presence of multiples small patches of local forest remaining within the Klang Valley provides unique opportunities for designing buffer zones and urban corridors consisting of Dipterocarpaceae and other local tree species planted in urban environments and capable to strengthen and to promote existing conservation networks. In this perspective of integrating tree conservation in man-made systems, new information technologies including open-databases and participative geographic information appear as promising tools for collectivities to archive the target of Malaysia’s 2020 national strategy to “promote and encourage the understanding and participation of the public and institutions for the effective conservation and protection of biological diversity”.   Concrete approaches for the implementation of new technologies to achieve ecologically and socially integrated tree conservation within the Klang Valley will be discussed.   Session 2: SEEDLINGS PLANTING   This is an outdoor activity to be conducted at the MNS Nursery at the end of Session 1.   Join us as we plant seeds that had been collected, germinated, and other garderning activities required ie watering, weeding, etc. or just to network with your fellow “Greenies”.   Do bring along your drinking water, insect repellant, hat, gardening tools and gloves.
