Abstract

The diversity and density of birds in two different habitats on two types of soil (remnant forest and oil palm plantation on peat and mineral soil) were investigated in Samarahan, Asajaya and Bau District, Sarawak. To determine the bird diversity and density of bird communities, Point count technique were used at each study sites from October 2016 to November 2016. A total of 480 observation of bird representing 53 species and 25 families were detected from the surveys. The results show that bird communities in forest on mineral soil were diverse compared to forest on peat soil, in contrast to oil palm plantation where the bird communities are more diverse on peat soil compared to mineral soil with Shannon's diversity index was 3.098, 2.926, 2.324 and 2.215 respectively. This study clearly shows that conversion of forested area on peat and mineral soil into agricultural purpose affected the diversity and density of bird communities.
