Abstract

We have described the vegetation structure with respect to various community types of Highland Heights Community Park and adjoining territory. High values of Shannon's Diversity Indexes and Floristic Quality Assessment Indexes indicate a superior quality, species-rich habitat with several high-fidelity species. Based on our research, which reveals that the study site is worthy of conservation and preservation, we suggest recommendations to the city of Highland Heights for park management and land use planning.
