Abstract

Mount Makiling Forest Reserve is a mature secondary tropical forest . It is a protected and key biodiversity area, with an extremely high biodiversity conservation priority. Within the three-year observation period (mid 2016 to early 2019) varying phenological patterns across mother trees within and among species was observed. This resulted to differences in the period and intensity of seed fall within and among species. Significant number of species was observed to produced less fruits and short seed dormancy, making seed availability for seed technology and seedling production activities for in situ and ex situ conservation a crucial concern. Flowering, fruiting and seed fall patterns, dormancy, and other seed characteristics, therefore, should be well-understood in order to achieve sustainable germplasm conservation of indigenous forest trees in MMFR.
