ECOLOGICAL ANALYSIS OF VEGETATION AT KAMALPUR VILLAGE, MEHSANA, GUJARAT
Keywords:Biodiversity, Ecological vegetation, Quadrate sampling.
Gujarat has rich traditional knowledge associated with biodiversity. The present paper deals with the nature of ecological vegetation in Kamalpur village. For the study of vegetation list quadrat method is applied. Repeated quadrat sampling leads to occurrence of 10 trees species with their frequency, abundance and density. The frequency to Raunkiers classification and IVI value were done.
