Rahmat Rahmat, I Nengah Suwastika, Fahri Fahri


This research is to determine diversity Cerambycid beetles on cacao plantation (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) based on three different land types. The research was carried out from June 2017 to April 2018. Sample were collected using Atrocarpus trap at three types of cocoa plantations i.e. cocoa plantation in margin of the forest (Omu Village), not cultivated cocoa plantion (Wombo Village) and cultivated cocoa plantation (Sibowi Village). Total of 381 Cerambycid beetles belonging to 5 tribes, 7 genera and 13 species were obtained during the study. The highest of diversity (H') and Eveness (E) indices was found in the not cultivated cacao plantation (KTT). The Bray-Curtis similarity indices (IBC) was showing a similarity between cocoa plantation in margin of the forest (KPH) with cultivated cocoa plantation (KT). The result of  this study was showing that three types of cacao plantations in this research, very supported the existence of Cerambycidae bettles and hasn’t significant effect on their life.
