Gaharu (Aquilaria Malaccensis)


Aquilaria malaccensis is a species of plant in the Thymelaeaceae family. It is found in BangladeshBhutanIndiaIndonesiaLaosMalaysiaMyanmar, the PhilippinesSingapore, also Thailand. It is threatened by habitat loss.[4]

The World List of Threatened Trees (Oldfield et al., 1998) listed Iran as one of the countries at the population of A. malaccensis. The exploratory 2002 CITES review confirmed that Iran has no record of the species. As a result Iran is no longer considered as habitat for or producer of agarwood.[5]

Aquilaria malaccensis is the major source[6] of agarwood, a resinous heartwood, used for perfume and incense.[2] The resin is produced by the tree in response to infection by a parasitic ascomycetous mould, Phaeoacremonium parasitica,[7] a dematiaceous (dark-walled) fungus.
