- Asteraceae Family is a one of vegetation elements covered Mount Lawu forest area. The study purpose to determine the diversity level, abundance and distribution patterns of Asteraceae Family. This research also try to formulate the potential of Asteraceae Family as effort to develop an ecotourism of the Cemoro Kandang hiking track on Mount Lawu. The methods of this research is exploration, interview, and questionnaire. The data analyzed by descriptive quantitative method with calculation of diversity indices (Shannon-Weiner Index), density, frequency, importance value index (IVI) and distribution analysis. This research also utilizing correlation and regression tests with assistance of SPSS application. This research observed 15 species namely : Adenostema hirsutum L., Anaphalis javanica (Bl.) Boerl., Anaphalis longifolia (Bl.) DC., Chromolaena odorata L., Crassocephalum crepidioides (Benth.) S.Moore.,Dichrocephala chrysanthemifolia (Bl.) DC., Emilia sonchifolia L., Erigeron karviskianus L., Eupatorium riparium Reg., Lactuca serriola L., Mikania micrantha L., Shoncus arvensis L.,Taraxacum offinale L., Tithonia diversifolia L., and Youngia japonica L. The plants diversity levels of Asteraceae in Cemoro Kandang hiking track included in medium category. The abundance of Asteraceae was mostly found in station V which located between 2600-2800 meters above sea level (masl) consisting of 41 individuals and 7 species. The lowest diversity observed in station II which located between 2000-2200 masl. consisting of 15 individuals and 1 species. Distribution patterns of Asteraceae along Cemoro Kandang hiking track were in clumped and uniform patterns. The Asteraceae have a potential as an effort to develop ecotourism through local wisdom values including natural tourism potential (19%), education potential (20%), conservation potential (19%), economy potential (19%) and spiritual potential (23%).
