Abstract

This research has been done in a cave ecosystem at Nuni tropical lowland forest in the northern coastal area of Manokwari, from 21 - 25 May 2005. A descriptive method with the observation technique has been used. The research's stages are; preliminary survey outside the cave's ecosystem to get an easy and proper observation plant for the surronding vegetation. While a survey inside the cave (interior survey) aims to describe the climatic condition, cave's shape and other ecological aspects. The result indicates that this cave ecosystem is located in the northern coastal area of Manokwari or exactly at the coordinate 00º46,778 South lattitude and 133º55.928 East langitude, at the altitude of 210 metre above sea level. The fruit bats in the Lowland forest of Nuni use this cave as roosting site during the day. The length of this cave is around 800 metre in the form of a tunnel, the height is 8 metre and the floor consist of sharp pointed rocks. The microclimate within the cave has an average temperature of 30º C, the relative humidity 81 % while the condition outside the cave; the average temperature is 29.3º C and relative humidity is 82 %. The total plant species found arround the bat's cave is 36 species from 27 families, the distribution based on their life stages are; seedlings 22 species, sapplings 15 species, poles 14 species and trees 12 species. The amount of the vegetation, ecologically support significantly the development and existence of these fruit bats.Keyword: Tropical Forest of Nuni, Dobsonia minor

Abstract

Papua is the region with the largest remaining forest resources in Indonesia. This amounts to 42,224,840 hectares of forest areas, which in other words means that 95% of its total area is listed as forests. The breadth of forest coverage is formalized by Forestry Ministerial Decree of Indonesia no. 891/Kpts-II/1999 on the Designation of Provincial Forest Area and Inland Waters in Tanah Papua. Meanwhile, forest resources plays an important part of people’s lives in Tanah Papua and holds an important function among customary communities in Papua. Nevertheless, as yet there has been no meaningful social forestry program that provides direct benefits to communities. As a response to the special autonomy of Papua, several initiatives aimed at providing formal access and support services to local people in forest resource management. Ironically however, such initiatives are discouraged by the central government, arguing that they should originate from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. Despite these circumstances, Tambrauw and West Papua have declared themselves to be a conservation district and conservation province, respectively. This article attempts to briefly portray the dynamics of these conservation initiatives and the possibilities of developing synergy with social forestry programming in Tambrauw District and West Papua Province.

Abstract

Penelitian ini dilakukan kurang lebih 3 minggu pada 3 November sampai dengan 17 Nopember 2014 di Sorong Selatan. Tujuannya untuk mengidentifikasi pemanfaatan jenis tumbuhan damar oleh masyarakat lokal di kampung Bariat distrik Konda Kabupaten Sorong Selatan. Pengumpulan data dilakukan dengan pengamatan terlibat dan teknik wawancara dengan responden contoh adalah masyarakat lokal. Penelitian mencatat bahwa ada tiga kategori pemanfaatan damar yaitu getah (kopal), bahan bangunan dan digunakan sebagai bahan kayu bakar. Konservasi tradisional spesies ini oleh masyarakat lokal di Sorong Selatan dilakukan dengan menetapkan ketentuan pohon yang siap dipanen saja (Dbh > 50 cm dan tinggi > 4m). Terdapat pola konservasi pemanfaatan tradisional untuk pemungutan jenis damar putih (Agathis labilladeri Warb.) hanya boleh dilaksanakan oleh masyarakat lokal yang berasal dari marga Kemeray, Konjol, Sawor, dan, semetara jenis damar merah (Vatica sp.) dapat dipungut dan dimanfaatakan oleh seluruh marga pribumi dan masyarakat pendatang.
