Associations between community structure and habitat were analyzed to study the effects of habitat type on the community structure on the basis of the investigated data of system layout monitoring sample in the Picea schrenkiana var. tianschanica forest in west Tianshan, Xinjiang, China. Amongst 192 (20 m × 20 m) plots, 1 909 individual plants with DBH ≥ 1 cm were investigated, and the sum of basal area at breast height was up to 291.632 m2. The stem and basal area at breast height of P. schrenkiana var. tianschanica were 91.5% and 97.4% respectively, the highest among all species investigated. According to diffusion coefficient C, mean crowding m*, aggregation index m*/m, negative binomial distribution parameters K, all five species (P. schrenkiana var. tianschanica, Betula tianschanica, Sorbus tianschanica, Ribes meyeri and Lonicera hispida) showed significant aggregation. P. schrenkiana var. tianschanica preferred habitat with steep hill, but not shady slopes and semi-shady slopes on section of gentle slope. Betula tianschanica preferred habitat with shady slopes and semi-shady slopes on section of gentle slope, while Ribes meyeri preferred habitat with sunny slopes and semi-sunny slopes on section of gentle slope. Grazing disturbance influenced the distribution pattern and habitat preference of the tree species in Tianshan forest zone to some extent.
