QUANTITATIVE VEGETATION ANALYSIS OF BARAYTHA FOREST IN CENTRAL INDIA

A. S. Thakur and P. K. Khare

ABSTRACT:

Various parameters of quantitative vegetation analysis of tree species were studied. On the basis of IVI four forest communities were identified. Population density and basal area of tree species were 218 ha-1 and 6.83m2 ha-1 respectively. The distribution pattern for most of the tree species was contagious. The Shannon-Weiner index and beta diversity for site were 3.66 and 1.65 respectively. The value of concentration of dominance was observed as 0.068 indicating that the dominance was shared by more than one and/or many species. Tree species showed log–normal dominance diversity curve indicative of shared resources pattern by a number of species.
