“DOMINANCE- DIVERSITY AND DISTRIBUTION PATTERN ALONG AN ALTITUDINAL GRADIENT OF JAMMU REGION”

Manoj Kumar Tyagi,Dr. Arvind Kumar Singh

Abstract

In this study, we examined the species composition, distribution pattern and diversity of tree and shrub species along an altitudinal gradient of Jammu Region.Vegetational analysis was analyzed along four forest stands at an altitude of 750m-1000ma.s.l. The total tree density ranged from 340-610 tree/hac. Pinusroxburghii displayed maximum density and IVI at all four sites. Carissa apaca showed maximum density and IVI amongst shrubs. Trees were distributed randomly while shrubs displayed contagious distribution. Species diversity ranged from 0-1.87 amongst trees while .98-1.36 values are reported for species diversity of shrubs..
