Abstract:

The present study was carried out for vegetation diversity of Mukundara Hills Tiger Reserve at two sites. In each site, a total of 100 quadrats of 10m x 10m for trees, 3m x 3m for shrubs and 1m x 1m for herbaceous species were randomly laid to vegetation characterization study. There were 36 tree species, 21 shrub species and 56 herbaceous species was recorded. Higher density and basal area of tree stratum was recorded in Site-I (Enclosure) 937 ind. ha-1 and 31.87 m2 ha-1 respectively. Higher density and basal area of shrub stratum was recorded in Site-I (Enclosure) 2408 ind. ha-1 and 0.5185 m2 ha-1 respectively. In case of herb stratum higher density and basal area was recorded in Site-II (Open) 483000 ind. ha-1 and 2824.54 cm2 ha-1 respectively. The value of similarity for tree stratum was (0.76). In case of shrub stratum, similarity was (0.76). In case of herb stratum, similarity was (0.78). Higher species diversity (Shannon wiener index) and higher Simpson’s dominance for tree, shrub and herb stratum was 2.60, 2.58, 3.17 and 0.15, 0.12, 0.0707 respectively. Two types of dominance diversity curves were also found in this present study in various vegetation stratums.
