  • Leaf Blade Anatomy of Philippine Medinilla Gaudich. Species in Relation to
           their Epiphytic Habit

    • Authors: Antonio L. Rayos; Jr., Annalee S. Hadsall
      Abstract: Leaf anatomy of four epiphytic species of Philippine Medinilla, namely, M. magnifica Lindl., M. miniata Merr., M. pendula Merr., and M. teysmannii Miq., was characterized by observation of leaf cross sections prepared through paraffin method. Similarities among the four species revealed by this study include thick hypodermis below the upper epidermis, palisade mesophyll comprising one layer of elongated lignified parenchyma cells, spongy mesophyll with scarce air spaces, and polocytic stomates present only in the lower epidermis. These features aid in water conservation which is highly crucial among epiphytes. Presence of druse crystals in all four species was observed. This feature functions for structural support, defense against herbivory, calcium storage, and increasing photosynthetic efficiency. In hypodermis, number of cell layers, cell shape, and relative thickness vary among the four species in this study. The spongy mesophyll of the four species differ in number of cell layers. Because these variations can differentiate these species from one another, they are deemed to be useful in taxonomy. This study shows that anatomical features of the Medinilla species used in this study are related to their epiphytic nature and their occurrence in the forest understory.  Keywords: Medinilla, epiphyte, sclerified mesophyll, hypodermis, druse, polocytic stomates

  • Tree Diversity and Stand Structure of Permanent Biodiversity Monitoring
           Area in Mount Makiling

    • Authors: Pastor L. Malabrigo; Jr., Arthur Glenn A. Umali, Cristino L. Tiburan, Jr., Nelson M. Pampolina, Juancho B. Balatibat, Crusty E. Tinio, Willie P. Abasolo, Amelita C. Luna, Jeferson C. Boncodin
      Abstract: Following the international protocol for establishment of permanent plots, a two-hectare permanent biodiversity monitoring area (PBMA) was established inside Makiling Forest Reserve. Results of the intensive 100% inventory revealed that the PBMA holds tremendous tree diversity. A total of 155 tree species were identified. Of these, 148 are indigenous to the Philippines with 47 endemics (30% endemism). The most abundant native species in the PBMA is Magabuyo (Celtis luzonica) with 2,287 individuals, followed by Balobo (Diplodiscus paniculatus), Tinaang pantai (Drypetes maquilingensis), and Apanang (Mallotus cumingii). The average diameter for all trees inside the plot is 14.28 cm. More than 90% of the individual trees fall under the category poles and saplings while large trees account to only 0.6%. Twenty-nine (29) species are listed under either the Philippine Red List (Fernando et al. 2008) or the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species (2015-4). Noteworthy among the list are the six critically endangered (CR) premium timber species including Makaasim (Syzygium nitidum), Kamagong (Diospyros discolor), Narra (Pterocarpus indicus), Bagtikan (Parashorea malaanonan), Guijo (Shorea guiso), and White lauan (Shorea contorta). The geodatabase that includes an interactive map developed in this study is of critical importance for future research activities in the area.   Keywords: Permanent biodiversity monitoring area, Makiling Forest Reserve, endemics, threatened species, geodatabase

  • Spatial Morphological variability of the Seagrass Halophila ovalis (R.Br.)
           Hooker f in Minahasa Peninsula waters

    • Authors: Billy T. Wagey, Ridwan Lasabuda, Frans Tilaar, Vivie Katuuk
      Abstract: The study was conducted to explore the spatial morphological variability of Halophila ovalis (R.Br.) Hooker f in seven sites of Minahasa Peninsula waters. The sites were Tanjung Merah Beach, Likupang Beach, Mantehage Beach, Likupang Beach, Tongkeina Beach, Manado Beach and Arakan Beach.  The Image-J software was applied to measure the leaves (length, wide, and cross veins), rhizomes, and nodes of the samples. Simple descriptive statistics were used to characterize the populations. Hobo pendant tempt/light loggers (UA-002-08) were used to measure light intensity and temperature. This research indicated that most of the leaves were larger in the subtidal area than those in the intertidal area.   Keywords: Morphometric, segrass, variability, Image-J, Hobo Loggers, Halophila ovalis

  • Rapid Assessment of Plant Diversity in Ultramafic Soil Environments in
           Zambales and Surigao del Norte, Philippines

    • Authors: Jessa P. Ata, Amelita C. Luna, Crusty E. Tinio, Marilyn O. Quimado, Lerma S. Maldia, Willie P. Abasolo, Edwino S. Fernando
      Abstract: This study covers the vegetation composition and diversity in two heavy metal sites with distinct climatic and edaphic environments in the Philippines, Zambales, and  Surigao del  Norte  in  the  northern  and  southern  regions, respectively, Tree density and basal area were higher in Zambales than in Surigao del Norte. Species diversity, however, was higher in Surigao del Norte site (H’=1.1071) than in Zambales, which may be attributed to high water and nutrient availability and unique geologic formations. Soil properties also varied, with higher organic matter concentration in Surigao del Norte. Twenty-one out of 35 taxonomic families in both sites were common in serpentine soils. Nine families were recorded to have a large number of individuals on both sites. A total of 11 species were known metallophytes of which four are Ni  hyperaccumulators and seven are endemic to both sites. These Ni hyperaccumulators have a high potential for phytoremediation, phytostabilization, and rhizofiltration. However, due to the scarce information on Ni hyperaccumulators, conservation statuses of most of them are unknown. Agricultural interference, site destruction and excessive mining are some of the factors contributing to the diminishing fate of metallophytes. Thus, it calls for its prioritization in biodiversity conservation.   Keywords: Plant diversity, ultramafic, nickel hyperaccumulators

  • The Edaphic-Endemics in the Metal-Rich Soils of Mt. Kiamo in Malaybalay,
           Bukidnon, Philippines

    • Authors: Lowell G. Aribal, Jessie Cris D. Porot, Joseph A. Paquit, Myrna G. Pabiona
      Abstract: Serpentine soils also known as ultramafic soils comprise 5 percent of the total land area of the Philippines. Majority of the ultramafic soils occur at the edges of the mainland and small island groups. However, little information had been known regarding inland ultramafic forest ecosystems just like Mt. Kiamo, which form part of the northern Mindanao ultramafic soils. Nine sampling plots with 20x20m dimensions were established within the lower, middle and top elevations at 1,563 to 1,782 masl.  All plants having ≥5cm dbh were identified and recorded.  Soil characterization was done by digging a 1x1m hole at variable depths within sampling plots.  Composite soil samples were collected on every horizon and analyzed. Result showed that Mt. Kiamo is composed of 151 species belonging to 114 families and 129 genera.  The dominant species include Symplocos ophirensis, Myristica sp., Polyosma integrifolia Blume, Calophyllum soulattri, Phyllanthus everettii, Madhuca sp., Scaevola micrantha, Ardisia elliptica, Weinmannia urdanetensis, Morella javanica, and Omalanthus fastuosus. Soil analysis revealed an extremely high level of Ni, Cr, Mn and Fe. Canonical Correspondence Analysis showed that species’ dominance, frequency, and diversity was influenced by Ni, soil moisture and thickness while plant density was influenced by Cr and bulk density.   Keywords: Mt. Kiamo, ultramafic, serpentine, Bukidnon

  • Basidiomycetous Fungi in Mt. Palay-palay Protected Landscape, Luzon
           Island, Philippines

    • Authors: Lea P. Angeles, Eduardo Jimmy M. Arma, Cherryl W. Basaca, Haydee Evangeline H. Biscocho, Arizaldo E. Castro, Sherine M. Cruzate, Ryan John G. Garcia, Llyrha Mae E. Maghari, Rosahle S. Pagadora, Edwin R. Tadiosa
      Abstract: Basidiomycetous fungi are ubiquitous organism thriving mostly in forest ecosystem. A study of these group of fungi was conducted at Mt. Palaypalay Protected Landscape (MPPL) in Southern Luzon, Philippines. This protected landscape was categorized by National Integrated Protected Areas System as one of the priority areas for biodiversity conservation. This study aimed to document the existence of Basidiomycetes in the Landscape. Collection and photo-documentations of fungi were done during the months of December 2014 to June 2015. Fungal sampling was done using Transect Line (TL) with a combination of quadrat and opportunistic sampling methods. Three transect lines, one kilometer each was laid out from baseline of 100 masl up to 500 masl. Ten quadrats of 15m x 20m with an interval of 250m were established for each TL. Fleshy and woody Basidiomycetous species were collected, identified, and characterized based on established dichotomous keys. Of the 434 specimens collected, there were 24 families, 37 genera, and 41 species identified. The Landscape is currently experiencing some degree of anthropogenic disturbances such as minor forest products gathering, slash-and-burn farming, and quarrying. Fungal diversity research efforts need to be encouraged to evaluate the effects of these human disruptions on the ecology of the Landscape.   Keywords: Basidiomycetous fungi, forest ecosystems, Mt. Palaypalay, Luzon Island, Philippines

  • Fish Species Composition, Distribution and Diversity in Two Selected
           Rivers of Mt. Hamiguitan Range Wildlife Sanctuary (HRWS), San Isidro,
           Davao Oriental, Mindanao, Philippines

    • Authors: Victoria T. Quimpang, Einstine M. Opiso, Romeo M. Tubongbanua; Jr., Mary Cor S. Salolog, Victor B. Amoroso
      Abstract: The composition, distribution and diversity of fish species in Dumagooc and Maug Rivers of Mt. Hamiguitan Range Wildlife Sanctuary (HRWS) were examined in the months of February, May and October, 2015. Backpack electrofishing was used to collect samples from four study stations along the river courses. A total of 33 fish species from 15 families with 991 individuals was recorded. It supports one endemic species, 28 native species and four introduced species. The Eleotridae family was dominant in Dumagooc and Maug Rivers. However in Dumagooc River, the sleeping cod, Oxyelotris lineonata was the leading species. Thus, mottled eel (A. marmorata) was distributed along all the stations while blue neon goby (Stiphonodon atropurpureus) was confined in the upper stream. On the other hand the leading species in Maug River was mottled eel, (Anguilla marmorata.). Furthermore, the common barb (Puntius bantolanensis) was found in the upper middle stream and downstream while Leopard pleco (Pterygoplicthys pardalisi) was noted only in the upper middle stream of Maug River. High species value of H’= 1.199 was found in Dumagooc River. These information would serve as basis for the formulation of protection and conservation policies for the fish species and its habitats before it becomes extinct.  Keywords: Endemic species; River; Fish species; Composition; Distribution

  • Odonata Diversity at University of Southern Mindanao, Kabacan, Cotabato

    • Authors: Cherie Cano Mangaoang, Alma B. Mohagan
      Abstract: Odonata are good biocontrol agents of agricultural pests and vector mosquitoes and even an indicator of environmental changes and health status of ecosystem. However, there are limited studies that have been conducted especially on lowland ecosystems. The study was conducted using time constraint with 4 exposure hours and opportunistic sampling protocols. Result of the study revealed 13 species of odonata belonging to three families, 2 of which are Zygopterans and only one family belonging to Anisoptera with 11 species. Libellulidae dominates the recorded species. 8 species are found in USMARC and 6 species in housing. One Philippine endemic was documented - Rhinocypha colorata. Diversity is low in the two sampling sites and high disturbance is found in housing (63%). Similarity index showed that 92% are disconcordant species. Low species diversity and low endemism of odonata is an indicator that the area is already disturbed as measured by the high number of common/oriental species and existence of environmental and anthropogenic activities. Thus, a conservation strategy for this important species will be implemented.   Keywords: odonata, USM, disturbance, oriental species
