Multiple Correlation Analysis among Dominant Species of Coastal Vegetation at Bakkhali-Frasergunj, West Bengal

The coastal vegetation of Bakkhali-Frasergunj along the coastal stretches of West Bengal is dominated by Casuarina equisetifolia, Mangroves (Avicennia marina, Excoecaria agallocha, and Phoenix paludosa) and Tamarix gallica (wild casuarina) among other plant species. Coexistence of the floral diversity in the coastal zone of Bakkhali-Frasergunj is correlated applying the formula of multiple correlation coefficients of standard statistical methods. The plants of coastal origin are positively correlated, and the obtained correlation coefficient value is 0.852 that signifies their existence and natural growth befitted in the coastal environments of Bakkhali- Frasergunj in the state of West Bengal.

Abstract


The coastal vegetation of Bakkhali-Frasergunj along the coastal stretches of West Bengal is dominated by Casuarina equisetifolia, Mangroves (Avicennia marina, Excoecaria agallocha, and Phoenix paludosa) and Tamarix gallica (wild casuarina) among other plant species. Coexistence of the floral diversity in the coastal zone of Bakkhali-Frasergunj is correlated applying the formula of multiple correlation coefficients of standard statistical methods. The plants of coastal origin are positively correlated, and the obtained correlation coefficient value is 0.852 that signifies their existence and natural growth befitted in the coastal environments of Bakkhali- Frasergunj in the state of West Bengal.
