Abstract

Juniperus phoenicea L. is one of important plants in EL-Gabal EL-Akhdar area. This plant species expose to danger of extinction due to different factors. The effect of climatic changes in the area, especially increasing temperature and decreasing rainfalls were clear noticed, in addition, human impacts such as over grazing, agricultural expansion, medical plants collection, fires…etc. This study was carried out to find some ecological data and parameters for juniper plants in the area to assay their situation and to be used in conservation programs in the future. The area was classified to three different sites depending on the elevation gradient. Quadrate method with three replicates of an area of 100 m2 were made in each site, and parameters of plant height, number of cones, stem diameter, vegetation cover and plant frequency were recorded and found. The results showed that the vegetation cover and frequency of juniper was differed among the study site. It was 14.77%, 11.04% and 18.50% for the cover, respectively, while the frequency was 49%, 28.50% and 88%, respectively. The growth parameters revealed different measurements for the junipers in the area.
