Abstract

A study on Nepenthes veitchii in relation to other species was undertaken at Jalan Babl, Nepenthes Camp, MBCA. The objectives of this study were to identify the abundance of N. veitchii in relation to other species found at Nepenthes Camp area, to visualize the distribution of N. veitchii in relation to other species by using Geographic Information System (GIS) of N. veitchii, and to produce density analysis of N. veitchii in relation to other species at Nepenthes Camp area in MBCA by using GIS. Four plots were set along Jalan Babi during the sampling section for field data collection. Global Position System (GPS) device was used to record the location of N. veitchii and other Nepenthes species found in the plots. The frequency and density of N. veitchii in relation to other species were calwlated to determine the species abundance. A total number of 138 Individuals of N. veitchii were found from a total of 937 individuals of Nepenthes in all the plots covering a percentage of 14.7%. Satellite image and topography map were produced to visualize their distribution at Nepenthes Camp area, MBCA and lastly, density analysis was conducted through spatial analysis function in GIS. There was no N. veitchii found at Plot D1. Plot D2 has 20% frequency and 0.003 density of N. veitchii. Plot D3 has the highest frequency and density of 70% and 0.109 respectively. Plot D4 has 30% frequency and 0.023 density of N. veitchil. They were distributed at Jalan Babl, Nepenthes Camp, MBCA due to the heath forest vegetation type. N. veitchil grow denser in Plot D3 and Plot D4 with greater sunlight exposure rather than shade area at Plot D1 and Plot D2 on nutrient poor sandy ground of heath forest.
