It is also irregular, resulting in massive fruit-crops (mastings) at unpredictable 2 5 year intervals (Janzen, 1974). This mast-fruiting is thought to be an adaptation to avoid seed predation, since populations of seed-eating animals are overwhelmed with food during mast years, but starved at other times. This keeps their standing abundance low and limits the damage they can inflict on any one seed crop. Water stress during occasional droughts is believed to provide the main stimulus for masting by dipterocarps.

It was created partly from lands which much of the rural population viewed as being available for shifting cultivation, or already subject to claim under customary law. About 3% of the PFE was affected by farming (Collins, Sayer, & Whitmore, 1991), and ITTO (1990) estimated that about 5000 km2 of Sarawak's forests might be affected by claims based on traditional land rights. When most of the PFE was gazetted during the 1970s and 1980s, therefore, there was an increasing conflict of interest and perception between rural farmers on the one hand, and the Forest Department and timber industry on the other.
