The Profile of Riparian Tree Grown in the Area of Water Springs in Kupang, Nusa Tenggara Timur Province Indonesia
AbstractThis study aimsat determining the profile of riparian trees in springs located in Belo and Labat somewhere around Kupang city Indonesia. This is a descriptive study applyinga systematic random sampling method. The results show that both, naturlaness and hemeroby of spring in Belo show the same index that is 4, while in Labat were respectively 3 and 5. This is clearly seen that the index of species richness in Belo was higher (3.1) than that in Labat (1.6).However, the diversity index of riparian tree in Belo (1.83) and Labat (1.45) are categorized as low compared with the diversity index according to Krebs (1985). The composition of riparian tree species insprings located in Belo and Labat were not same or the similarity index (SI)is 42.05%. The riparian tree vegetation has been experiencing degradation due to the influence of high anthropogenic activities.
