Baseline Study of Roadside Vegetation of Lahore-Islamabad Motorway (M-2) and its Fertility Status
S.S. Ahmad, T. Ahmad and K.F. Akbar

Abstract:
The present vegetation survey of road verges along Lahore-Islamabad motorway (M-2) was conducted to elucidate the percentage frequency and cover of each of the most frequent species in the study area and to assess the fertility status of the soil. The results of the study revealed that species diversity at a large scale (i.e. 227 species), but less number of frequent and dominant species throughout the study area. Similarly, the nutrient status of the roadside soil was found to be sub-optimum to optimum. Therefore comprehensive studies of pattern of different plant communities and various ecological and edaphic factors are necessary for the presentation of natural assets, habitat, species diversity and their conservation.
