  • The purpose of this study was to analyze the working time and the efficiency according to plot shape and plot size under the same conditions. We chose two stands which were relatively gently sloped end evenly distributed in number of trees and surveyed 198 plots, and 306 plots in each stand. 1. As to the time advantage of plot establishment method, the direct-four line establishment method was more favorable than the diagonal-line establishment method in a rectangular plot. 2. The method by Blumeleiss-$Me{\beta}$ trommel was more favorable than the method using a tape in a circular plot. 3. As to the time advantage, the circular plot was more favorable than the rectangular plot. Especially, the circular plot was twice more available than rectangular plot in small plot size, but enlargement of plot size gradually decreased time advantage of circular plot.

  • 1. The purpose of this study was to find out the best sampling form and sampling unit in forest survey. 2. The value of small sampling unit was over estimated in comparison with that of large sampling unit. 3. The value of circular form was over estimated in comparison with that of the others. 4. The smallest unit for estimation in area sampling were as follows. a) 0.06 ha. in the rectangular plot. b) 0.08 ha. in the square plot. c) 0.10 ha. in the circular plot. 5. Conclusion was as follows. The best sampling unit was 0.06 hectoare in the rectangular plot, which was most economic above all and gave preferable result for in the forest survey.

  • This paper analyzes data on the composition, status, diversity, and distribution pattern of invasive forest undergrowth in a protected area (Khadimnagar National Park) of Northeastern Bangladesh. Assessment was done by means of stratified random sampling to diversify the invasive forest undergrowth species. For vegetation survey, 45 plots were taken randomly in ($2m{\times}2m$) circular plot from three topographical regions namely top of the hill, middle slope and plain land (15 plots from each region) and a total of 715 individuals, 22 invasive species belonging to 17 families were recorded from the study site. Among invasive species, shrubs constitute 10 species, herbs 9 species, and vines 3 species respectively. Mass number of invasive undergrowth species was grows in plain land (45.45%) followed by middle slope (31.82%). Based on the survey, invasive undergrowth plants of study areas were also categorized into three degrees of invasiveness e.g., highly invasive, moderately invasive and potentially invasive. Herbs, shrubs, and vines constitute the highest density at Chromolaema odorata (Linn.) King. (1.09), relative density at Chromolaema odorata (Linn.) King. 6.85%; highest and lowest frequency was calculated at Cassia alata L. (64.44%) and Diplazium esculentum (24.44%); for relative frequency the highest was Cassia alata L., which occupies 6.64%. Determination of the abundance of the different species revealed that Cassia alata L., constitutes (3.36) followed by Pteris cretica Wilsonii (3.14) of the area. The presence of invasive undergrowth species always reduced the number of associated species. Therefore, an extensive in-depth long-term investigation, proper policy formulation and management interventions and further study and continuous monitoring on their impacts need to be triggered targeting the control of the invasive undergrowth species of this protected area. In this aspect, national and international organization could help to conserve its biodiversity.
