A set of Permanent Sample Plots (PSP) was established in the lowland mixed dipetrocarp forest within PT Inhutani II concession at Malinau (2º45 3º15N, 116º30), East Kalimantan (Figure 1). They were designed for comparative studies of conventional logging (CNV) and reduced-impact logging (RIL) techniques under the ITTO Project PD 12/97 Rev.1 (F), Forest, Science and Sustainability: Bulungan Model
Forest. The Malinau concession is located about 30 km to the East of CIFORs Bulungan Research Forest in a forest area with elevation between 100 m to 300 m above sea level. The terrain is undulating with slopes ranging from 10% to 70%. The mean annual rainfall in the area is 3.790 mm, with the number of wet months of more than 9 months per year. This pocket guideline is intended to give visitors to PSPs information on how to access to the location of plots and distribution of trees with
dbh = 20cm in each plot. The CIFORs Seturan station is used as a starting point to travel to the plots.
