Diversity index, Dwarf forest, Fern, Inventory


The quantitative analysis of Fern diversity for Hon Giao dwarf forest in Bidoup Nui Ba National Park is necessary to create a solution for conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity resources. The quantitative analysis of biology in order to determine the following in indicies: taxon diversity, Density (D), Frequency (F), Abundance (A), A/F, H (Shannon’s index), Cd (Simpson’S index), SI (Sorensen’s index) was used to quantify the diversity of Fern. The results showed that quantitative support for the generality of positive heterogeneity-richness relationship across heterogeneity components, taxa, spartial scale. The taxon diversity at the study sites were recorded with 25 species, 22 genus and 4 orders of Fern. The species distributed and varied greatly in spatial scale. Fern diversity was the highest at sites with low altitudes (1600-1700 m a.s.l.) and the lowest at site with high altitudes (≥ 1800m a.s.l.). Otherwise, based on the sites were they grew, Fern diversity was also the higest with high soil moisture, fertility.
