Plant diversity patterns and ... - Forest Ecosystems

Dec 21, 2017  Tree species diversity is the determinant of total forest biodiversity as trees provide resources as well as habitats for almost all other forest species (Haung et al. 2003). In forest ecosystems, tree species diversity varies greatly from place to place mainly due to variation in biogeography, habitat and disturbance (Whitmore 1998 ).

A total of six forest types were classified by cluster analysis using Importance Value Index (IVI) of 289 woody species. Species diversity, forest structure and woody community associations were evaluated and discussed. One way ANOVA revealed significant differences in all species diversity measures and stand structure along the forest types.
