Penyebaran Jenis Puspa (Schima wallichii (DC.) Korth) di Resort Kawah Ratu, Taman Nasional Gunung Halimun Salak, Jawa Barat
Puspa (Schima wallichii (DC.) Korth.) is a type of plant that dominates the area of Gunung Halimun Salak National Park, especially at Kawah Ratu Resort. Puspa type is one of the upland plant species that can grow in critical land. The objective of this study is to identify the distribution pattern and the potential for regeneration of puspa species (Schima wallichii (DC.) Korth.) at Kawah Ratu Resort, Gunung Halimun Salak National Park, West Java. Data were collected by analyzing vegetation with a single plot method covering an area of 1 hectare at each location. The research was conducted in the Pamengpeuk Block and the Leles Block. The species found in the two research locations were 98 species. The results showed that the distribution pattern of puspa was clustered, both in the Pamengpeuk block and in the Leles block. A clustered spread indicates good youth growth. The ability of puspa regeneration in both locations was quite good because the number of puspa regeneration individuals was more than the individual trees.
