Authors(2) :-Rajasamarsen K Modi, Pratima Mathad

Tropical forests are major reservoir of the plant diversity. These forests inhabit a large number of trees, shrubs, herbs, climbers also a wealth of non-timber forest products, medicinal and wild edible plants. Knowledge of forest structure and floristics are necessary for the study of forest dynamics. The dry deciduous forest of Yadgir district has rich vegetation and the area has many plant species which are migrated, introduced, isolated and explored ones. The present survey is based on the results obtained from both the intensive and extensive floristic studies of the vegetation area for 4 years during 2011-2015. The study revealed 570 species of Angiosperms under 392 genera which includes 18 monocot genera belonging to 101 families among them 38 enumerated as rare, endangered and threatened plants which illustrated with their botanical names, local names, red data categories and present status in the study area. Study also highlights that some rare or endangered plants abundantly found in the forest, are need more attention towards protection
