Haryana has a small camel 0.386 population (18th livestock census, 2007. In this study the Camel species is analysed, Moran?s I coefficient of autocorrelation was used to investigate the spatial distribution of Camel to analyze clustering of the population in Haryana using Tehsil as a real unit. Camel census data was used to link the heterogeneity in the Camel distribution with regard to agro-ecosystems and other environmental factors related to agro-ecological zones in the state of Haryana. Comparatively lower population density (0 - 0.7/ sq. km) of Camel was observed in North eastern Haryana. Moran?s I statistic revealed that the distribution of all types of Camel was clustered. The distribution of the camel was characterized in terms of agro-ecosystem prevalent in the area. This ecosystem approach to characterize livestock distribution is useful in livestock production systems research planning.
