Abstract
Species richness, species composition, height, diameter class structure and tree species diversity were
examined in a 1 plot in lowland tropical rain forest in Sungai Lalang forest reserve, Selangor, Malaysia. However,
some of trees with diameter of breast height (DBH) of 5 cm and above were measured and recorded to be analyzed.
As a result, all species at the study site were compared with some results which were found equaled abundant
according to Evenness Index that gave a value of 0.922; Margalef’s Index reflected a value of 17.01. Chaetocarpus
castanocarpus (Euphorbiaceae) was the most important species with an IVI (Important Value Index) of 4.643%,
