Effective conservation planning requires to understand both ecological and sociopolitical values. In Myanmar, dry forest community types and species that should be prioritized for conservation are not known due to limited research. My study is to develop a conservation prioritization procedure under data deficit condition. Vegetation survey and questionnaire survey were carried out in the study area. A decision procedure and community specificity method were applied to identify prioritized communities and species. The questionnaire survey was used to evaluate our prioritization method and to understand the importance of those community types and species for local people.
The ecologically important 6 dry forest community types and 76 rare important species were identified. The detected community types were agreed by both foresters and local people. For prioritized species, they do not consider community specificity is important. Foresters prefer fuel wood species for conservation, but local people prefer to conserve species not only for fuel but also for food and aesthetics. All stakeholders should meet together to communicate their senses of values for effective conservation.
