Forest Community Structure along an Altitudinal Gradient of District Rudraprayag of Garhwal Himalaya, India
G.P. Raturi

Abstract:
The present study communication examines the forest Community structure and their status in Rudraprayag district of Garhwal Himalaya. On the basis of physiognomy, species composition, structure, habitat and physiography forests of the district were classified into four types viz., temperate forest, temperate mixed forest, Subtropical forest and subtropical mixed forest. The district is mostly covered by temperate forests and partially by the sub tropical forest. Temperate forests are dominant forest types of the district with a density of 1980, 1550 plant ha-1 and basal cover 40.19, 20.94 m2 ha-1 in temperate mixed and temperate forest, respectively. The subtropical forests located in the lower valleys with southern slopes and are generally sparse forest type of the district.
