Abstract

The study focused on the abundance and diversity of avifauna species at Modibbo Adama University of Technology (MAUTECH) Yola, in Girei local Government Area, Adamawa State. Information on species abundance and diversity is yet to be ascertained in the study area. Three habitat types (grassland, woodland and riparian) were selected for the study. Three transects of 1km length were established in each of the habitats. Data on avifauna species abundance was obtained through total count method. Diversity was determined using Simpson Diversity Index. Data on the avifauna species abundance was subjected to descriptive statistics (Frequency Tables and Percentages), while data on species diversity was analyzed using Simpson Diversity Index. The results obtained showed a list of 24 different avifauna species with their population distributed across the study sites (157and 164 for grassland, 200 and 140 for woodland and 272and 164 for riparian areas) during morning and evening hours respectively. The results of avifauna speciesdiversity across the study area during morning session indicated 0.9998, 1.0000 and 0.9999 forgrassland, woodland and riparian areas respectively. However, that of evening session indicated 0.9998 across the habitats
