Fig. 2. Comparison of woody biomass data in diverse Southeast Asian forests compiled by community members and professional foresters. Measurements of aboveground woody biomass were made by community members (C) and foresters (F) over a range of lowland dipterocarp forest in Batu Majang, Indonesia (a), mountain rainforest in Manlin, China (b–c), evergreen monsoon forest in Sakok, Laos (d–e), and Diem (f) and Moi (g–i), Vietnam (n = 289 permanent plots; log10 scale). The different points in each column show the smallest observation, lower quartile, median, upper quartile, and largest observation.
