Abstract
Sidhi forest of Central India is world famous for introducing the first white tigers in the world. These forests are recreational centre since there existence and are also heavily exploited by local dewellers.The forest has witnessed a great loss of there primary vegetation. Species distribution of 4 ha. of non-forest area along with the plant functional group of the neighbouring forest of Rampur Naikin block of Sidhi district were carried out during 2011-12. A total of 310 species belonging to 90 genera and 31 families were recoognized. The plant functional groups were quantified as old existing forest and true forest and there relationship with the geographical position of the area was established. Chi square test and Two-Way-Indicator-Species-Analysis were applied to study the various species in these two biotopes. Species composition of the forest and non-forest has been separated by ordination on species composition, which shows that these two study areas have a distinct species assemblage. The result reveals that the non-forest area shows great disturbance in form of pioneer species and alien species. The interior and the edges of the forest show more species composition than non-forest area. Further the species groups of high conservation value are more frequent in the core than the boundary of the forest. Thus there is an urgent need of the restoration of the forest through Joint forest management (JFM) and community participation programs for the conservation of the valuable forest wealth of this region
