Effect of environmental conditions on germination of Albizzia lebbek, Dalbergia sissoo and Terminalia arjuna with special reference to Bundelkhand Region, India.

Bhagya Laxmi Sengar, Ragvendra Chauhan, Akriti Sharma


In the Bundelkhand plain sub region areas of Jhansi, Hamirpur and Datia districts, along the banks of rivers like the Pahuj, Betwa and Yamuna, we see Albizzia lebbek (Siris) Dalbergia Sissoo (Shisham) and Terminalia arjuna (Arjun). There is little timber production in Bundelkhand, good teak forests are found only in Sagar and Damoh districts in small patches. Bamboo is found in small patches across the region forests and scrub lands are intensively used by to source firewood for consumption and sale. The aim of the study is to show the effect of soil and atmospheric condition on the growth of forest tree in Bundelkhand region.
