Insect is the animal that dominant in earth with number of species almost 80% of all
number of animal in the earth. Insect usually found in the plantation land such as durian
plantation. Durian visited by insect various purpose such as helps pollination and same
of them are harmful fot durian itself. The research about Spatial Distribution Patterns of
Insect In The Community Plantation of Pulo Seunong village Tangse subdistrict Pidie
district has been conducted that purpose to analysis spatial distribution of insect, to
know species of insect which profitable and harmul base on reproductive phase, to set
insect indicator based on age of durian, and to describe species insect of durian in
community plantation. Method that used in this research is survey with technique
random purposive sampling. Parameter in this research is spatial distribution of insect
and environmental factor durian plantation that includes height, air temperature, light
intensity, and air humidity. Data was analysis with quantitative that used morisita index
for spatial distribution. The result of this research are spatial distribution of species
insect is clumped with morisita indek Id>1 and species that found in durian has been
described and, determined profitable and harmful of the presence of that insect.
Key Words : Spatial Distribution Patterns of Insect, Pulo Seunong, durian plant.
