「Introduction of Vegetation in Northern Sumatra, Indonesia」
(International Center for Island Studies, Kagoshima University)
Northern part of Sumatra Island has still rather wide area of primitive tropical rain forest though most areas of Indonesia have lost forests. The area is also famous for rich fauna, elephant, orang hutan, tiger, etc. I visited Geumpang―Pameu area of Aceh Province, located at the northern end of Sumatra Island in 2009, and Tangkahan area of Gunung Leuser National Park, North Sumatra Province in 2014 and 2015. I will show you the vegetation in these areas at this seminar.
