Abstract

Analysis of tree species composition in Gunung Gede Pangrango National Park, West Java.

Abstract

The results of an analysis made in 1984. Five 100-m transects were laid out at 3 altitudes (1440, 1555 and 1625 m) and sampled by the point centred quarter method. Similarity indices were calculated for trees, poles and saplings using Sorensen's method. Species diversity tended to be lower at the higher altitudes, and dominant species were different. At the tree stage, dominant species at 1440, 1555 and 1625 m alt. were respectively Altingia excelsa, Castanopsis argentea and Schima wallichii; at the pole stage they were Turpinia montana, T. pomifera and Macropanax dispermum, and at the sapling stage Pavetta indica, no species, and Eurya obovata.
