Abstract

The work has been carried out from April 2012 to March 2016 with the main aim to document the floristic diversity of Angiosperms at the Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary, Delhi in a view to conserve native flora of the Aravalli biodiversity. The vegetation is dry deciduous consisting of Prosopis juliflora as dominant exotic species and Diospyros montana as dominant native species in the sanctuary. In the present study we documented 82 genera and 100 species from the trails selected in the sanctuary and analyzed oyer three seasons. We geo-tagged all the species encountered and frequency of species in disturbed trails was also assessed. Diagnostic features of all the documented species have been included, along with their protologue information.
