With the conspicuous similarity on ecological and floristic characters to tropical rain forest of SE Asia, the forest in Dahei Mountain is considered as a type of tropical seasonal rain forest in the northern margin of tropical Asia. Furthermore, the distribution of trees in DBH class, the individual/ tree species relation and the frequency of tree species are enumerated.
