Diversity, dominance and population structure of tree species along fragment-size gradient of a subtropical humid forest of northeast India. Journal of Environmental and Earth Science 2: 97– Upadhaya, K. Studies on Plant Biodiversity and Ecosystem Function . ADVERTISEMENTS: Biodiversity loss has always existed as a natural process but threats to biodiversity arise when the rate of extinction exceeds the rate of speciation. Biodiversity loss is primarily related with human interactions with natural resources. In early phases of life, humans remained as one component of ecosystem but, very recently, humans have become a [ ].
Indian Flora and Fauna of the Northern Zone are the representation of richness of the natural resources of India. Tremendous variety of plants is found in different states of northern India which constitutes various types of forests including Deciduous Forests, temperate forests, tropical thorny forests, evergreen forest and many s of northern zone also house a number of plants. diversity are called ‘hotspots’ of diversity. India is among the world’s 15 nations that are excep-tionally rich in species diversity.
