Sampling Methods

Transect method Ten (10) linear transects 50m long and 5m wide were laid out accross the homogeneous site: 5 plots located near the Ankalalahana village (NV) (d≤0.5km) and 5 plots located far from the village FV (0.5 km <d<1.5 km). Each transect was divided into ten square plot (5mx5m) to facilitate the inventory. Each transect was separated from the next by a minimum of 80 m and a maximum of 120 m. Each individual tree with a diameter at breast height (dbh) of 5 cm and greater was recorded and identified.

Method step description:

  1. Field work Specimen sampling Species identification Voucher specimens of plants were collected and sent to the national herbarium of Botanical and Zoological Park Tsimbazaza in Antananarivo for identification. Species were classified into families according to the W3Tropicos data base using the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group II system (APG II, 2003).
