Recovering West Bali Tropical Deciduous Forest Ecosystem through Eradicating Invasive Weed and Native Tree Planting ProgramWest Bali National Park, located in the western part of Bali is the last stronghold for Balinese biodiversity. This lowland forest is home for endemic and critically endangered Bali Starling Leucopsar rothschildi. Despite of its important status, the West Bali National Park has suffered serious problem from invasion of exotic weed Lantana camara, Jatropha gossypifolia and Acacia nilotica which caused decreasing grazing area, inhibiting forest regeneration and inducing forest fire during long dry season. The aims of the project are (1) to control and reduce distribution of invasive weed and enlarge grazing area (2) to improve forest regeneration through planting native tree.
