Diversity, evenness, habitat, plant, species, vegetation composition.



Mining activities usually give negative impact to environment. Mining activities could give some effects on environment such as soil erosion, formation of sinkholes, biodiversity loss, and soil contamination, groundwater, and surface water by chemicals from mining processes. Mining companies in some countries are obliged to follow environmental restoration, make sure the exploited area is returned to its normal state. Oil and Gas facility which located in Grissik Village is one of the mining areas in South Sumatra surrounded by secondary forest. Several studies have been conducted in this area to find out how important the area is for flora and fauna habitats around the site. The objectives of this study include identifying plant species, measuring the index of species diversity, species evenness index in the study area, and calculate the importance value of plant species indices. The data collection of vegetation was conducted in two location plots and the observations applied a single plot method. Based on the results of the analysis, it is known that species diversity index is still relatively good. A high level of evenness index (> 80%) also indicates no plant species dominate both study areas.
