The region is subject to irregular and short-term droughts; however, there is no regular dry season, as such (Kume et al. 2011). The national park is mainly covered with a primary lowland mixed dipterocarp forest (Hazebroek and Abang Kashim bin Abang Morshidi 2000), which is formed on nutrient-poor sandy or clay soil (Watson 1985). , trees rising above the canopy) reaching a maximum height of 70 m (Kato et al. 1995). The forest potentially contains the richest tree diversity in the Old World, with a record number of 1,175 tree species in a 52-ha plot (Condit et al.

In comparison, the lowest bat species richness was recorded in oil palm plantations, followed by fruit tree groves. The authors suggested that secondary forests in fallows potentially maintain bat diversity, whereas fruit tree groves and oil palm plantations provide inadequate habitats for most frugivorous and insectivorous bats. Oil palm plantations are known to support far fewer wildlife species compared to primary forests and often have fewer species compared to other tree crops and secondary forests (Fitzherbert et al.
