Distribution and use of Mangifera caesia Jack. in Bali, Indonesia
The distribution and use of traditional fruit (Balinese name: wani) Mangifera caesia were surveyed in four locations in Bali, Indonesia. A fieldwork expedition was conducted in 2016 during the period from November 30 to December 17. Research work consisted of measuring farm parameters describing home gardens and the fruit orchards in Bali (species identification, number of trees and used of fruit). Data includes the frequency of wani in home gardens or orchards in four different sites in the island. The home gardens and the fruit orchards in Bali do not only consist of fruit trees, but also possess a range of other crops as rice and vegetables. Such data would provide important information required for initiating on-farm conservation efforts. More in-depth analysis must be undertaken in order to better understand the strategies developed by various species for survival and colonization and some additional field trips and meetings will be necessary. Such new data and interpretations will serve as a basis for co-authored publications by project partners for the dissemination of major results.
