Abstract: The seasonal cambial activity of five tropical tree species was investigated at Khao Yai National Park. The species studied were Tetrameles nudiflora, Magnolia baillonii, Canarium euphyllum Kur, Toona ciliata, and Spondias axillaris. Cambial activity was quantified by counting layers of undifferentiated cells in the cambium zone from wood anatomical micro sections prepared from wood samples collected in monthly intervals from July 2010 to June 2011. The relationship between cambial activity and climatic factors was investigated by using Pearson's correlation. The growth dynamics of five studied species differed considerably. The cambium of Tetrameles nudiflora and Magnolia baillonii was most active when rainfall reached its maximum amount in June (mid rainy season), whereas the cambium of Canarium euphyllum, Toona ciliata, and Spondias axillaris was most active in March during the transition from the dry to the wet season. © 2012 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
