Abstract:
The present work aimed to study the stand parameters (Crown size, basal area, frequency, density, dominance, IVI, species diversity and richness) were calculated on the tree species diversity at urban and rural area of Jaunpur, district, U.P. A total number of 3911 trees representing 54 species of trees and 23 families of the species were identified. Species were classified into diverse classes according to their occurrence. The importance value index (IVI) for each species was determined. The Shannon diversity index values obtained in an urban area are lower than those obtained in a rural area. In the Rural area, Mangifera indica has the highest IVI with 196.15 and lowest was of Pongamia pinata with 56.81. In an urban area, high IVI was of Azadirachta indica with 176.69 and Cassia fistula was lowest IVI with 72.22.From these studies it is evident that rural area sites was having an edge cover and was highly dominant and urban area sites in terms of species diversity, dominance and richness was less dominant.
