Four permanent plots, each of one 1-ha in size, were established in shola forest, wet evergreen forest, moist deciduous forest and dry deciduous forest in Kerala. Each 1ha plot was in turn subdivided into 100 quadrats 10 m x 10 m in size, with quadrats permanently marked. All mature trees (gbh > 30.1 cm) in the permanent plots were tagged and identified. Saplings (gbh 10.1 cm to 30.0 cm) in moist deciduous and dry deciduous forest plots were tagged and identified in all the 100 quadrats… 
Plant species diversity in different altitudinal ranges of a very moist forest of coastal Eastern ghat in Odisha

Species Diversity and Tree Regeneration Patterns in Tropical Forests of the Western Ghats, India
Study Aim. To assess species diversity and tree regeneration patterns of different vegetation types of Western Ghats, India. Rarefaction was used to estimate species diversity of different vegetation
Plant Ecological Studies on Gavi Forests; an Unlogged Tropical Rain Forest Ecosystem, Southern Western Ghats of India
Analysis of vegetation of Goodrical Reserve forests shows that unlogged area harbours 65 arborescent species of 590 individuals /ha. On the other hand in logged area, number of species were 54 out of
Restoring Natural Capital in the Tropical Dry Deciduous Forests of the Western Ghats of India
TLDR
The ethnobotanical aspects of the ecosystem and efforts to develop a participatory project to restore the forest’s natural capital, to sustain indigenous knowledge, and to evaluate different pit planting types are described.
Status of the rare palm Bentinckia condapanna Berry in two habitats of Goodrical Reserve Forests; Western Ghats of India
Bentinckia condapanna shows more IVI values and there by dominance and ecological stress in both the sites, that is, in sparsely distributed habitats as well as in dominated habitats (Site-II). Major
Floristic diversity along an altitudinal gradient of Mannavan Shola forest in Southern Western Ghats of Kerala.
TLDR
The analysis of species diversity revealed that, the maximum species diversity greater in the low altitudinal gradient followed by middile, and the middle and higher altitudes have more number of similar species than lower (1900msl) and middle (42%), lower and higher (28%) altitudinal gradients respectively.

The mosaic theory of forest regeneration and the determination of forest composition in Ghana
TLDR
At any one site, clear differences in composition were recognized between adult and juvenile samples, but in terms of the variation in floristic composition over the whole of the forest zone, they are slight and forest types appear to 'breed true'.
A Phytosociological Analysis of Species‐Rich Tropical Forest on Barro Colorado Island, Panama
TLDR
The results suggest that the older BCI forest is not climax after at least 130 yr of succession, and some data suggest that wind—caused canopy gaps are important for the persistence of several species in the older forest.
