Keywords: taxonomic diversity | main stands | Wanagama forest

The objectives of study were to determine taxonomic diversity of macroflora vegetation in each main stands of Wanagama I forest in District Gunung Kidul. Vegetation diversity data resulted could be used as input of recommendation on conserving the local biodiversity and as well as other planed conservation activities. Nested square of sampling method was used to collect the data required in the research. Size of nested square was determined based on species-area curves and theoretical based of other study. Seven main stands of forest vegetation research studied were: pine (Pinus merkusii), mahogany (Swietenia mahagoni), kesambi (Schcleicera oleosa), teak (Tectona grandis), cajuput (Melaleuca leucodendron), Glyricidia (Glyricidia sepium), and mixed stands. Each stands were observed four times repetition. Square location was randomly determined based on contour map of the area. The variable of the study of taxonomic diversity were: species, genera, family and order richness. The data resulted were than analyzed statistically using one-way analysis of varian (ANOVA) and Tukey’s test. The result of study prepared that species of main stands affected very significantly toward all taxonomic diversity: species, genera, family and order total richness. Pine stands highest contains species, genus, family and order richness.
