Local and Scientific Understanding of Forest Diversity on Seram, Eastern Indonesia

Foresters, biogeographers and tropical forest ecologists have devised increasingly sophisticated classifications of forest types (e.g. Eyre 1980). Forest 'types' and their more localised and discrete components, which might variously be described as 'habitats', 'niches', 'biotopes' and 'ecotones', constitute what ecologists understand by 'secondary biodiversity': that is diversity in terms of associations of species rather than the ('primary') diversity measured in terms of the numbers of species (or other taxanomic categories). Although the classifications of foresters in particular have been largely determined by the practical considerations of the industry, during the latter part of the twentieth century they have been much influenced by the developing science of forest ecology, and the technologies of remote sensing (Howard 1991) and Global Information Systems (GIS) (C.A. Johnston 1998). The typologies of forest ecologists, while originally rooted in those of foresters, have become increasingly distanced from them in an attempt to model more accurately the dynamic character of forest diversity
