Profile of Small mammals from Gunung Slamet, Central Jawa. Research of small mammals at
Gunung Slamet, Central Jawa was conducted. Three types of habitats as representation of
primary forest, secondary forest and plantation were examined at Kalipagu, Kaliwadas and
Bambangan in order to record its small mammals biodiversity. Combination of trapping and
direct observation recorded 31 species of small mammals from the areas observed. Shannon-
Wiener index was the highest in secondary forest (3.8) compared to primary forest (3.6) and
plantation (3.4). The results indicated that most small mammals of Gunung Slamet use secondary
forest for their home range. However data on microchiropterans that were more frequently
recorded in plantations indicated that agricultural plants were their primary foraging areas. On
the other hand, most of small mammals species were rely on both secondary forest and primary
forest as an important food resources. The dendogram resulting from cluster analysis was
concordant with this view. Primary forest and secondary forest clustered closely together,
while plantation was recognized as a distinct group.
Key words: Small mammals, Gunung Slamet, biodiversity, habitat.
