Abstract

Forest opening and fragmentation may affect the composition of vegetation by permitting the expansion or domination of one or two species in the area. This study fowd that Merremia pebata, aa lnvasive climbing/creeping species, has dominated some area of Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park (BBSNP). Domination of this species was favoured by forest fragmentation, iodicated by the significantlyhighernumber of indMduals of M.peltatain the open area than in intact forest. The ecophysiological characters of M. peltatasttpport the ability of this species to become a strong invader. As the expaasion of this species may negatively affect the biodiversity and vegetation health, the application of appropriate ecological approaches to control the dominatioa of IUL pehata in the conservation area is necessary.
