Abstract


The existence of herpetofauna at the Alas Purwo National Park has been neglected. It has been shown by
the lack of diversity data of herpetofauna in the National Park. This research was aimed to inventory and identify
of herpetofauna at Section I of the Alas Purwo National Park Management (SPTN I) for determination of the
diversity level (H’). Evenness Index (E), and Simpson Domination Value (D) were used in this research Observation
found 4 families of amphibian with 1.486 samples and 7 families of reptile with 90 samples. SPTN I Alas
Purwo National Park was considered as a medium level of diversity with 1.93 of H value. The research suggests
that SPTN I belongs to a middle diversity level, middle evenness index, and relatively low domination value.
