Abstract

ABSTRACT:
The present  work has  been carried out  to  collect  information  about  different
plant species in vicinity of Dudhelimata Temple area of the Satlasana forest.
During the present investigation, 272 genera and 359 species belonging to 91
angiospermic  families  have  been  recorded.    The  study  also  reveals  that  the
ecological balance is being harmed due to rapid rise in human population and
stress on natural resources for its maximum utilization.
KEY WORDS: Floristic diversity, Satlasana, Mehsana, Gujarat, India..
