Main Article Content
Katerniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary, a tropical moist deciduous forest along the Indo-Nepal boarder comprises of 778 species of angiosperms, out of which 613 species are dicots under 386 genera and 91 families and 165 species are monocots under 103 genera and 23 families.Â It contains 82 species that are in cultivation and/or growing as alien invasives.Â The species include 149 trees, 81 shrubs, 445 herbs and 103 climbers.Â Fabaceae with 100 species and Poaceae with 65 species occupy the first position in dicots and monocots, respectively.Â Cyperus with 14 species has been found to be the largest genus represented while 355 genera are represented by solitary species.Â The present study enumerates all species of flowering plants occurring in the sanctuary area with their correct name along with first citation and some important references pertaining to the flora of the study area.Â Important synonyms have also been provided.Â For majority of species the representative voucher specimens have also been supplied.Â The paper also briefly deals with the vegetation types of the area. The outcome of the work is based on extensive field survey of the area conducted during 2008â€“2011, study of literature and examination of specimens of earlier collections housed at BSA, BSIP, CDRI and LWG.
