ABSTRACT

Rangeland analysis of Pabbi Hills Kharian Range in compartment No. 66 Pabbi Rasul Reserved Forest Rangeland Sub-Division Kharian was conducted to determine range vegetation and composition cover during 12-23 May, 2005. Herbage species contributed more towards forage production than the browse ones. Gangir (Grewia populifolia) and Phulai (Acacia modesta) was the major contributor in browse species. The total rang vegetation cover is 32%. In forage production, the maximum contribution was by the perennial grasses that were also true in cover composition parameters. Among all the life forms chamber (Eleusine indica) contribution was maximum followed by Mesquite trace.
