Multivariate Analysis of a Tropical Insect Community

Raees Hussain Zaidi, S. Shahid Shaukat and Shaheen Abidi

Abstract:
A tropical insect community was analyzed from March to August, 1990. The observed abundance pattern usually did not fit MacArthur's broken stick model. Species diversity (H’) was highest in June and July (1.0236, 1.0290 and 1.01162) and lowest in April and May (0.8078 and 0.8281). Agglomerative cluster analysis showed two groups of samples with the exception of samples collected in May. First group consisted of March to April samples and 2nd group had the samples of May to August. This clustering revealed that community changes were correlated with the environmental factors i.e. humidity, temperature and rainfall.
