Abstract

A preliminary study of forest floor vegetation was conducted in the coastal hill forest at Pulau Pangkor, Perak. Twenty quadrats of 2 m x 2 m totalling an area of 0.008 ha, were established in Pangkor Utara and Pangkor Selatan Forest Reserves. Species composition in the quadrats was represented by 260 individuals which consist of 51 species, 42 genera and 32 families. Ebenaceae recorded the highest total number of species with five taxa where Diospyros recorded the highest total number of species with five. Total tree density in the study quadrats was 32,500 ind/ha in which Gnetum sp. being the species with the highest density of 3,625 ind/ha. Burseraceae also being the most important family with Importance Value Index (IVi) of 8.52% and the most important species was Pentaspadon motleyi (Anacardiaceae) with Importance Value Index (SIVi) of 7.44%.
