Abstract : Tropical forests are more diverse than the other terrestrial ecosystems by possessing greater number of life forms. It is widely accepted that the identification and prioritization of important centers of biodiversity are necessary at both the national and the global scale for conservation. Indian subcontinent, with diverse bio-climatic regions supports one of the richest flora and fauna. The increased human pressure and consequent effects on the landform and land use changes has a profound effect on the present vegetation and the biodiversity. They not only maintain the components and balance of forest ecosystem but also play vital role in the field of human welfare. The present study compiles an account of biodiversity of forest flora of Dalma forest in East Singhbhum of Jharkhand state.A field survey of the study area was carried out regularly to describe the biodibersity on the basis of floristic study. The study area is a part of lower Gangetic plain which contains unique flora providing inflormation on the present status of biodiversity.
