Species diversity of climbers were inventoried in four nature trails of Agro Techno Park Universiti Malaysia Kelantan (UMK), Jeli campus. The climbers studied were herbaceous climbing plants since there was not many research on checklisting of herbaceous vines especially in rainforest of Malaysia. The purpose of this study was to determine the diversity, composition and abundances of climbers in Agro Techno Park Universiti Malaysia Kelantan, Jell Campus by constructing randomly four plots for every trail. Besides, checklist of climbers' diversity in Agra Techno Park Universiti Malaysia Kelantan, Jell. Campus was prepared as it for any further study by next researchers. Samples of the climbers were collected to be preserved and identified. The preservation was done by putting the samples in zip lock transparent bag that contained of 70% ethanol solution. The samples then dried in the oven at 30-40 °C. Mounting and labeling were done before the samples were kept in the storage box. This technique was called herbarium sampling technique. The pattern of the climbers samples were analyzed by using Shannon Diversity Index, Shannon Evenness Index, Margalef Richness Index, Abundance Parameters and Importance Value Index (IVI). Through the result, total of 593 climbers belonging to 35 species were recorded. Fabaceae was the most diverse plant of climbers family by which it consisted of 4 genera and 5 species. This was followed by Menispermaceae, Melastomataceae, Connaraceae, Apocynaceae, Rubiaceae and Vitaceae. The result obtained had indicated that ecological environment and human disturbances were the most important factor that influenced the abundance and distribution of climbers.
