An ecological species grouping has been developed through statistical analysis of growth data. This was intended to supplement existing species groupings and contains 10 groups. There are four main groups describing the main dipterocarp species, two pioneer groups and three additional groups describing small trees which tend to be non-commercial. This may form the basis of a suitable ecological indicator for sustainable forest management.
