In this study, we investigated the importance of vegetation and elevation in the determination of the diversity and abundance of rodents in Geno Biosphere Reserve, Hormozgan Province. The study area was divided into seven plant types and four elevation classes. The binary similarity coefficients were used for the investigation of the plant types similarity base on the presence of rodents. The maximum similarity obtained between Ac.+Ziz.+Pros., plant type and Zyg.+Gym.+Euph.+Con., plant type and minimum similarity obtained between Euph.+Gym.+Con., plant type and Ac.+Ziz.+Pros., plant type. To study the correlation of rodents abundance with plant types and elevation, X2 Test was used that showed a significant difference. The maximum abundance of rodents was on ?1500 meter elevation and Amig.+Pist.+ Junip., plant type, while the least abundance found on ?1000 meter elevation and Ham.+ Sal.+ Gym., plant type. Also, the maximum diversity of rodents was on ?1000 meter elevation and Ac.+Ziz.+Pros., plant type, while the least diversity found on ?500 meter elevation and Pros.+Ziz.+Ac., plant type.
