Forest vegetations are the most diverse in the vegetation structure and composition which directly or indirectly responsible for the existence of other ecosystem. All forest regions are being affected by several means and thus scientific and ecological monitoring is obligatory for conseration of the forest. Angiospermic plants are a typical and important component of most of the forests and contribute considerably to biodiversity. Thus proper ecological analysis of angiospermic plants provide the elementary status of the vegetation. The present investigation is aimed to reveal the phytosociological and ecological status of the angiospermic plants of Diana Forest Range under Jalpaiguri Forest Division.
