Abstract

Second growth forest are widely considered as playing important roles in the livelihoods of local people in the Philippines providing non-timber forest products like rattan, for subsistence use or as a source of income. However the impact of rattan dominance to the succession of native and exotic seedling is not yet fully understood. This paper aims to determine the influence of rattan growing vigorously in a secondary forest and investigate how rattan dominance influence the regeneration status of native and exotic tree species, compare the regeneration status in presence of rattan and to analyze the relationship of rattan dominance to different environmental factors. Result shows that rattan dominance implies adverse effects on seedlings which influenced the succession of some native and exotic seedlings. Furthermore, a rattan growing vigorously in an understory has a greater impact on regeneration status of second growth forest due to a possible understory competition.
