Sampling diversity and ecological observations of tree strata in the cloud forest El Cielo, Tamaulipas, Mexico



Sampling diversity and ecological observations of tree strata in the cloud forest El Cielo, Tamaulipas, Mexico



Revista Chapingo Serie Ciencias Forestales y del Ambiente 8(2): 125-131



This research was aimed at fitting species diversity indices on tree strata and to analyse the ecological parameters using different sizes of quadrants and transects as sampling schemes. The ecological parameters of abundance, dominance, frecuency and relative importance value were investigated in 2 plots of 3150 and 5100 m2. More than 30 tree species were found growing in a mixed uneven-aged forest with a density of over 1000 trees/ha.
