Abstract: Black pepper (<b><i style="">Piper nigrum</i> Linn.</b>) is available in a vast altitudinal diversity and shows great adaptability to a wide range of climatic and soil conditions. The study of leaf bio-chemical components such as chlorophyll, carotene and phenol concentration and bio-mass percentage, showed considerable intra species variation in wild black pepper collected from the Western Ghats (Karnataka and Kerala). The results plotted in map with the help of ARC-GIS software to get an idea of spatial variation, indicated that, the diversity of chlorophyll and carotene percentage is wide in a narrow geographical range, but certain patch showed high phenol concentration (between 10º48' and 12º25' latitude).
