      A study on the economically important plant communities was carried out during summer in various parts of Malam Jabba valley, Swat. The principal aim of the study was phytosociological evaluation with special reference to the occurrence of commercially important medicinal plant species in coniferous forest of the study by:   The Himalayan subtropical pine forests ecoregion in Pakistan is classified under the Tropical and Subtropical Coniferous Forests Biome. This ecoregion stretches for about 3, km across the Himalayas through Pakistan, India, Nepal, and Bhutan. The dominant pine species is the chir pine (Pinux roxburghii). The trees in this ecoregion are.

      Welcome to can view our List of Common Tree Names, or a List of Botanical Tree Names to identify the common or botanical tree name or type. The use of tree pictures to help with tree species identification is also recommended.. Each species of tree can have many different names, here we cross reference them so you can find out the botanical and common names for a tree. This is a list of woods, most commonly used in the timber and lumber trade Softwoods (coniferous) Araucaria. Hoop pine (Araucaria cunninghamii) Monkey puzzle tree (Araucaria araucana) Paraná pine (Araucaria angustifolia) Cedar (Cedrus) Celery-top pine West Indies mahogany (Swietenia mahagoni) Bigleaf mahogany.

      The cheer pheasant is reported to be extinct from within Pakistan's boundaries, and is included in the IUCN Red Data Book. The western horned tragopan was reported to have disappeared from within Pakistani territory, but has now been relocated to Indus Kohistan, although its numbers are low.   Out of the 16 amphibian species recorded to date, two are endemic. For invertebrates, exact data is not available but a number of butterfly species are endemic, especially in the North-west Himalaya, Karakoram and Hindukush mountains. The Northern Areas of Pakistan provide a habitat for a number of globally significant wildlife species.

here are six endemic mammal species in Pakistan. Among them two — the little known woolly flying squirrel, Eupetaurus cinereus, found in the northern mountains of Gilgit and Chitral, and the Indus dolphin — are endangered. Other threatened species include the Balochistan black bear, Ursus thibetanus gedrosianus, the snow leopardFile Size: 4MB.

It is not often that a book about coniferous trees covers the entire collection worldwide. Most books are highly selective and omit the rarer, less known, or esoteric species. In the two volumes now available, Aljos Farjon has assembled in-depth coverage of all species of conifers.

Northern areas of Pakistan lies between 32 and 37 N and 71 and 75 E and covers an area of 43, sq km. The landscape is dominated by high peaks, glaciers, river valleys and plateaus linked with passes. As you rise in elevations you pass through a series of vegetation zones from steppe to temperate coniferous zone to sub alpine and alpine zones.

Introduction. Pakistan has million ha of forest and planted trees, which equates to percent of the total land area.

Forty percent of the forest area comprises coniferous and scrub forest in the northern hills and mountains. species of vascular plants in Pakistan so far been recorded is 6, (Ahmad, ; Stewart, ) with endemic species, out of which 90% occur in the western and northern mountains at an altitude of over 1, m.

The endangered plants of Pakistan with their area wise distribution are shown inAuthor: Rabia Shabbir, Asma Jabeen. native and introduced species, representing 22 families and about genera.

In a preliminary analysis of the flora of Pakistan, it has been found that the number of species per genus is much lower than the global average, indicating a high rate of diversity at the gene level (Shinwari and Shinwari, ).

37% ( species) of the total of endangered species are endemic to Pakistan. A recent study has revealed that the endemic species of Indo-Pakistan are over (Shinwari et al., ) (Table 9). The centre of evolutionary radiation is Kashmir, northern Balochistan and Chitral (northern Pakistan).

Pakistan is an oblong stretch of land between the Arabian sea and Karakoram mountains, lying diagonally between 24° N and 37° N latitudes and 61° E and 75° E longitudes, and covering an area of million hectares.

The wildlife of Pakistan comprises a diverse flora and fauna in a wide range of habitats from sea level to high elevation areas in the mountains, including mammal and bird species. This diverse composition of the country's fauna is associated with its location in the transitional zone between two major zoogeographical regions, the Palearctic, and the Oriental.

Total volume of all tree species was calculated by using their plant height and DBH in equations provided in the local volume tables.

The diametre and height of E camaldulensis was greater than all other tree species but the volume of both E camaldulensis and A. procera was also better than all. Sheesham (Dalbergia sissoo), mulberry/Shahtoot (Morus alba), babul (Acacia nilotica) and species of Eucalyptus and Populus are the common tree species grown in the irrigated plantations.

The rivarian forests grow in narrow belts along the banks of River Indus and its tributaries. PAKISTAN PLANT DATABASE. The published Flora of Pakistan is a comprehensive inventory of the plants of Pakistan, the first modern flora of more than 6, species from a large, relatively poorly known region of South Asia.

This Pakistan Plant Database (PPD) includes all information published in the Flora volumes already in print in a searchable web-based format. Potential of Pakistan Native Ornamental Species • Diversity of flora and climate of comparable size • native species of flowering plants reported in Flora of Pakistan found wildly in different phytogeographical regions • Acclimatized well in our regions • Easily grow with minimal care and less water, fertilizer and pesticide.

Pakistan is a sub-tropical country which is situated between 20 and 37° N latitude 75° E longitude. Ayubia national park lies in the Himalayan wet temperate forest.

Ayubia National Park is a protected area of 3, hectors (8, acres) located in Abbottabad District, Khyber Pakhtunkhaw province, northern Pakistan.FOREST TYPES.

The following forest types are found in Pakistan. Littoral and Swamp forests: These are more or less gregarious forests of low height which occur in the Arabian sea around the coast of Karachi and Pasni in Balochistan.

The main species is Avicennia marina (99%). Other species like Rhizophora have disappeared over a period of time due to heavy cutting.Fir, deodar, blue pine (Pinus wallichiana), and spruce are the principal coniferous trees. At lower elevations, below 3, feet ( metres), broad-leaved oaks, maples, birches, walnuts, and chestnuts predominate.

Conifers are an important source of commercial timber.
