Abstract

The present study was carried out on two dominant forest types were identified along and elevational gradient in Nainital Forest Division. The dominant tree species were Quercus leucotrichophora and Pinus roxburghii Roxb. Followed by Acer oblongum, Rhododendron arboreum, Quercus floribunda, Cedrus deodara, Myrica esculenta, Ficus nerifolia, Cupressus torulosa and Prunus cerasoides.Tree and sapling species richness, density and diversity were high in Quercus leucotrichophora dominated forest and total basal area and concentration of dominance were maximum in Pinus roxburghii dominated forest. Seedling species richness was maximum in Pinus roxburghii dominated forest and density, diversity and concentration of dominance were maximum in Quercus leucotrichophora dominated forest.
