Abstract: Selai area, a critical rhino refuge in Endau-Rompin Park, is mainly covered in mixed dipterocarp forest, where riverside forests and stream vegetation are fragile environments with many distinct plant associations. Pockets of freshwater swamp forest, edaphic hill forests including Shorea curtisii ridge forests and Livistona-rich forest, and lower montane forest around the highest peaks Gunung Besar, G. Chabang Tiga and G. Tiong, also occur. The endemic species documented are Begonia rajah Ridl., Dacryodes idngii (Engl.) Kalkman, Ridieyondra kiewii (R.Kiew) A.Weber, Kosterrnansia rnaiayana Soegeng, Macropanax rnaingayi (C.B.Clarke) Philipson (new for Johor), and Piptospatha ridleyi N.E.Br. ex Hook.f.. Rare, but not endemic, plants documented are Celtis rigescens (Miq.) Planch.,Dirnocarpus jUrnatus (Bl.) Leenh. ssp. philippinensis Leenh., Dipterocarpus ternpehes Sloot., Pararnignya scandens (Griff.) Craib var. ridieyi (Burkill) Swingle, and Schoutenia giornerata King (all new for Johor). The key conservation significance of the Selai area rests in its protection of a large range of landscape elements and vegetation communities with floristic differences from elsewhere in the Park, which increases the overall biodiversity conservation value.
