In Peninsular Malaysia, for example, most of the highland areas are covered with this type of habitat, which is important not only in its biological richness but more for its other ecological functions. The Main Range or Banjaran Titiwangsa is an important water catchment area for the whole of Peninsular Malaysia. Many of these areas are now being developed for hydroelectric dam projects, roads and highways, and resorts. Steep slopes are sensitive areas prone to soil erosion. Disturbances in the hinterland will most certainly affect areas downstream as well.

There is a real need to put more effort in saving and protecting this precious habitat type. Fortunately, some state governments have halted land clearing for agriculture. It is vital that all remaining forest areas are protected. In this way, this valuable natural habitat can be managed on a sustainable basis.
