Variation is the law of nature, it occurs everywhere and every movement. The variations take place at micro level and small period of time, but these become apparent only over a large space and big-time gapes. Biological variation initiates at micro level and become apparent at species and ecosystem level. Biodiversity is the degree of variation of life. It is a measure of the variety of organism present in different ecosystem. The floristic inventory and diversity assessment are necessary to understand the present diversity status of conservation of biodiversity. A study was conducted to document the floral diversity of Mandvi forest range of Kachchh district, Gujarat state, India. The survey was made using Radom sampling method to analyze the floral diversity of selected study area. Total 145 species of 117 genera belonging to 51 families were recorded from selected study area. Out of 145 species, 53 plant species were belonging to tree, 32 species belonging to shrubs while 46 plant species and 14 plant species belonging to herbs and climbers respectively. The present study provides the status of floristic wealth of the selected study area.
