Vegetation of the proposed area is a mixture of open and impenetrable thickets generally composed of thorny species. This place is generally associated with the poorest and the shallowest sites and which are badly eroded and are very rocky with shallow, bare rocky alkaline soils, sometimes it can also be seen on steep slopes depending on the soil available in the crevices. This formation is mainly composed of characteristic species like Boswelia serrata, Anogeissus latifolia, Chloroxylon swietenia, Madhuca latifolia, Soymida fabrifuga etc in certain well defined areas and for the presence of complex associations of tropical, moist and dry forests at the elevation of about 700 m above mean sea level. As a whole, the vegetation is typically deciduous type and scrub jungle in most of the places.
A study was conducted with the help of Dr.Srikant Gunaga of Forestry College, Sirsi to enumerate the plant species in the proposed area during the month of March 2014. A total of 143 plant species of 115 genera belonging to 43 diverse families (Annexure i) were recorded. Among them shrubs were predominant with 43 species (30.1%), followed by herbs with 42 species (29.4%) and 29 species of trees (20.2%). From the documented plants, six plant species of the localities were having threat status (RET) with 4 species belonging to vulnerable and 2 belonging endangered status. About 50.3% (72 species) of the species were found to be the economically important species. Of which 31 species were having medicinal value and 17 species were wild edible fruit plants.
