Abstract

Recovery Pattern in Diversity and Species of Ground Vegetation and Amf in Reclaimed Coal Mine Dumps of Korba (India)

Two, three and five years old biologically reclaimed coal mine dumps located in 13 km radius of Korba area (Chhattisgarh, India) namely Kusmunda, Dipika and Manikpur coal mine sites of South Eastern Coal Field Limited were selected and treated as replicates to study the status of ground vegetation and AMF in relation to nutrient status and age of the dumps. These attributes were compared with nearby Sal (Shorea robusta) forest area. We have noticed that the mining activities created a huge amount of overburden dumps adversely affected the natural vegetation, soil microbial populations and soil nutrient status.
