The aims of the research were to Identify the
species of Anaphalis found in Poncokusumo District,
profiling distribution of Anaphalis in Poncokusumo
Distrit, and describing habitat of Anaphalis in
Poncokusumo District. The benefit of this research is the
availability of baseline data as a reference for
enforcement of conservation measures for Anaphalis
species found in Poncokusumo. Conservation steps that
can be taken include socialization of the local community,
habitat protection and population monitoring. The field
survey was carried out in October-December 2020 by
measuring several plots in the area found by Anaphalis.
Each site was analyzed for vegetation by measuring the
density, frequency and cover of plants. Plant species
included in the quadratic plot of 1x1 m2 were identified.
In addition, microclimate factors were recorded, such as
temperature, humidity and light intensity as well as
altitude, coordinate points, soil type and land slope.
Interviews with the local people, We interviewed
informant especially was key person around we found
Anaphalis habitat. We conducted a face-to-face semistructured questionnaire and asked our informants to ask
about the distribution, uses and functions, and community
conservation efforts of Anaphalis. Data analysis,
Vegetation analysis to know composition of plant species
inside quadrates for determining diversity index,
important value index, dominance and everlasting of
plant. Abiotic factors that have been measured are shown
in tabular form as a comparison between distribution
locations. Information from interview with local person
was interpreted qualitatively descriptive. Some of the
conservation opportunities in the strategy are policy
support for biological conservation and the ecotourism
movement, threat aspects such as reduced control of land
functions in mass tourism. In this study, the SWOT
analysis provides recommendations on significant
strategies that come from a combination of strengths and
optimizing opportunities, and reducing weaknesses and
optimizing opportunities so that strengths reduce threats
and manage risks.
