Tutor description

A study was conducted to analyze species diversity and correlation between different species diversity, species richness and species evenness, between East and Southwest aspects. The research exercise was carried out in Chirpine forest above the College of Natural Resources campus for East aspect and above Samthang for southwest aspect. The numbers of trees, shrubs and herbs were recorded in the quadrate plot measuring 10m x 10mfor trees, 5m x 5m for shrubs and 1m x1m for herbs. A total of 1128 species were recorded from the two study areas. A total of 450 species were recorded from east aspect and 678 from south west aspect. Generally, the study area is dominated by herbs (E=304, SW=542) followed by shrubs (E=69, SW=59), chirpine (E=53, SW=67), and broadleaf (E=15). Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) was used to compare the mean diversity and Shannon-Wiener information index was used for calculation of species diversity, richness and evenness of two different aspects.
