Abstract

ABSTRACT:
The  present  study  deals  with  floristic  analysis  of  plant  species  belongs  to
Angiosperms, grow in the area  of  Sabarmati river of Gujarat state , India.
Plant  exploration  was  conducted  to  determine  plant  species  of  Angiosperms.

been  listed  systematically  which  counts  including    indigenous  cultivated  and
naturalized plants.The   study    area  shows   a   floral   diversity   comprise   of   
384  genera   and   542  species  belong   to  114   angiospermic   families.
Dicots   were  represented    by    93    families   and    459   species ,While   
Monocots   were    represented   by    21   families  and   83  species.These
plant  species  grow  wild  as  well  as  cultivated  in  study  site  .The  Floristic
