Repairing the Rainforest, a classic text book written by two Australian forest restoration experts describes a variety of methods for restoring degraded or absent rainforest in northern Queensland, Australia.
The most favored method of restoring rainforest in Queensland is known as the Framework Species Method (FSM). Framework Species Method involves planting a limited variety eg. 30 species of quick growing small trees . These trees are secondary forest pioneer species typically dispersed by fruit bats, pigeons and frugivorus birds such as bulbuls.
In Queensland such plantings would typically include at least 4 species of figs including Ficus fistulosa (F. congesta), F. septica, F. variegata and Ficus racemosa. All these fig species are also found in Borneo.
