DOMINANCE OF PROSOPIS JULIFLORA (SW.) D.C IN THE DELHI RIDGE FOREST OF THE SEMI-ARID REGION, INDIA

EKTA

ABSTRACT:

Prosopis juliflora was introduced in the arid and semi-arid region to increase the vegetation cover and stabilize the inhospitable terrain. The dominance of P. juliflora on the natural plant communities were assessed in Delhi ridge forest. Four ridges were selected subjectively and 40 sites were studied. Sites were selected randomly within each ridge to cover density variation. Density, frequency, richness and evenness of the different tree species were studied in the quadrates distributed in the sites.
