Abstract: Eight sampling plots of fuel wood were investigated of eight households of Daka, Xishuangbanna, Yunnan. The results show that there are great discrepancies of plant species richness among different households. Furthermore, hierarchical agglomera-tive graphics of fuel wood indicated that plant community similarities among different households are low. Meaningwrule, according to the semi - structure interview of sampling households, the authors found that species economic value were different from each household. Species- household curve that similar to area- species curve of fuel wood showes the minimum sampling percentage were 15 based on the fit and assessment of model curve S = a + bmB. A list of folk utilizable plants found in sampling plots is attached.
