Abstract

This study is to assess the diversity of pteridophytes in Sungai Mahua permanent plot and compare it with the diversity of pteridophytes in Keningau permanent plot. The research on pteridophyte diversity of Keningau permanent plot had been done by Teh Pooi Keat from School of International Tropical Forestry in year 2006, and his data was used in doing the comparison of both the plots. Pteridophyte diversity in Sungai Mahua permanent plot is assessed by setting up sub-plots there and counting the individuals of pteridophyte species that is present there. The data collected is then used to count diversity indices. A total of 18 species from 11 different families are present in Sungai Mahua permanent plot. Meanwhile 24 species of pteridophyte is present in Keningau permanent plot. The dominant species in Sungai Mahua permanent plot is Heterogonium pinnatum and in Keningau Permanent plot is Selaginella brooksii. The diversity indices show that both the plots are more or less similar to each other in terms of species evenness, richness and diversity. These two plots only differ in the species composition because both the plots are set in two different type of forest. Sungai Mahua substation is a nprimary forest and Keningau substation is a disturbed forest.
