Abstract: The present study deals with the floristic composition and regeneration status of Emblica officinalis Gaertn. in two forest stands viz., Laimaton & Zaujangtek of Manipur, India. Total 24 species belonging to 19 families and 23 genera at Laimaton and 21 tree species belonging to 12 families and 20 genera at Zaujangtek in the woody layer were recorded. The woody layer was dominated by Quercus serrata Murray in both the stands. The density of the trees was conspicuously higher (781 individuals/ha-1) at Laimaton forest stand than Zaujangtek forest stand (483 individuals/ha-1). Peilou’s Evenness index revealed more consistency in species distribution at Zaujangtek forest stand. Shannon’s Species Diversity Index showed that a relatively higher diversity (H’= 2.91364) at Laimaton forest stand than Zaujengtek stand (H’= 2.82724). The dominance diversity curve for the woody layer in both the forest stand showed normal distribution pattern of the species.
