A Preliminary study on Dye yielding plants of Bhadravathi Taluk, Karnataka

Authors(2) :-Dr. Nagaraj Parisara, Dr. B. R. Kiran

The present study is based on the extensive survey on dye yielding plant resources of Bhadravathi taluk, Karnataka during 2009-2010. The study reports on 29 dye yielding plants belonging to 26 genera and 19 families, along with their habit and parts used. Among plant families Fabaceae is dominant with 5 species followed by Leguminosae, Lythraceae, Euphorbiaceae, Lamiaceae, Apocynaceae and Anacardiaceae with 2 species each.
