This research was conducted to determine land use changes and their effects in Temiang village, Bukit Batu. Effects of changes in land use in Temiang village can be seen in provisioning services. Provisioning services are the benefits obtained from the supply of food and other resources from ecosystems. To collect primary data, a field trip was conducted, in addition to in depth interview and Focus Group Discussion method. The land uses in Temiang village are driven mainly by local societal preferences and practices which are rubber and oil palm plantations.
