Table 1 Biogeographic distributions by species (% of all species recorded) and corresponding dominance in terms of tree numbers (%) and biomass volume (TeAGB, %)

From: Tree species diversity and utilities in a contracting lowland hillside rainforest fragment in Central Vietnam

Biogeographic distribution (according to literature) Species Dominance (%)
(%) Trees TeAGB
unknown 30.5 8.0 7.4
endemics (central Vietnam) 8.6 17.0 6.1
endemics (wider Vietnam) 7.2 1.6 1.7
Vietnam, Laos/Cambodia 3.9 4.0 10.4
Vietnam and Malaysia only 2.3 3.0 1.8
wider mainland Southeast Asia 17.2 15.7 12.5
wider Southeast Asia (w. insular) 25.0 25.4 22.4
Vietnam and South China only 17.8 10.0 12.6
Vietnam, China, Laos/Cambodia 5.5 5.9 7.2
wider South Asian-Himalayan 10.9 4.2 10.0
wider Asia (including temperate) 3.1 4.3 6.7
introduced species 2.3 0.8 1.1
  1. ‘Wider Southeast Asia’ includes islands of Malesia (Indonesia/Philippines). ‘Wider South Asian-Himalayan’ refers to a distribution mainly along the southern Himalayan arc from Vietnam/China to Burma-India-Nepal-Pakistan
  2. Endemics of ‘central Vietnam’ occur only in Thừa Thiên-Huế and adjacent provinces
