Study on plant community structure in Alaungdaw Kathapa National Park, Monywa Distirct in Sagaing Region
- To study the plant community structure of Alaungdaw Kathapa National Park in Sagaing Region, a total of 124 releve's were taken and analyzed during January and May in 2013. The phytosociological study of plant communities were computed using the methods of Braun-Blanquet (1964) and Fujiwara (1987). Canopy layer can be classified into eighteen communities. They are Tectona grandis L. f., Terminalia tomentosa Wight & Arn., Xylia xylocarpa (Roxb.) Taub., Dipterocarpus tuberculatus Roxb., Pinus khasya Royle ex Parl., Shorea siamensis (Kurz.) Miq., Dillenia parviflora Martelli., Pterocarpus indicus Willd., Lagerstroemia speciosa (L.) Pers., Shorea obtusa Wall., Quercus mespilifolia Wall., Homalium tomentosum Benth., Syzygium cumini (L.) Skeels., Melanorrhoea usitata Wall., Croton persimilis Muell., Harrisonia bennetii Hook.f., Strychnos nux-vomica L. and Wendlandia paniculata DC. communities. The recent research recognizes the information and phytosociological data to identify the actual natural vegetation and to develop practical technology for the management of National Park. Therefore, the present study can serve as baseline data for sustaining and monitoring of environmental changes in the future.
