Abstract:
Plant species diversity and vertical profile of vegetation in three differently sized homegardensviz. small (0.025- 0.05 ha), medium (0.05- 0.75 ha), large (0.75-1.5 ha) of Mizoram were analysed. A total of 198 species (82 trees, 31 shrubs, and 79 herbs, 6 palms) belonging to 69 families and 169 genus were recorded from the homegardens, the average species diversity index values in the homegardens was high. The vertical structure of the vegetation consisted of 3-4 strata in all the homegardens surveyed. The ground layer (0-1m) primarily in the openings of the tree canopywas occupied mainly by annual/ biennial herbaceous vegetables, tubers and climbers. High species diversity serves the subsistence needs of the people for which these gardens have been popular in this part of the country.
