ABSTRACT

The nature of diversity in environmental regimes and its position at the trijunction of African, Eurasian and Oriental biotas have enabled India to harbor over 1,25,000 species of living organisms, constituting about 5% of known species of the world. This country has very rich elements of endemics in its flora. It has been estimated that about 35% of the higher plant flora is endemic to India. Out of the 34 hotspots of biodiversity identified in the world, India share geographic area of four hotspots located in the Himalaya, Western Ghats & Srilanka, Indo- Burma and Sundaland. These hotspots are rich in endemic flora.
