Assessment of Biodiversity and Identification of Least Concern (LC) Plant Species.

The Dhanbad district is spread over an area of 23.39 sq. kms. Dhanbad is the only district in the Jharkhand state where participation in the non-agricultural sector is more than that in the agricultural sector but rich in natural resources. Dhanbad city is the coal capital of India. It is obviously due to availability of the coal resources has prompted extensive mining activity. The investigation concerns the floral diversity in the district of Dhanbad, Jharkhand state, India and the identification of LC (Least Concern) plant species with the help of floristic anaysis. Which possess highly valuable vegetation; these areas are covered with different habits types of vegetation like Tree, Small tree, Cactus tree, Fern, Shrub, Small shrub, Cactus shrub, Climber, Herb, Bulb, Grass, and Stem parasite. The assessment has resulted in the recording of total 142 plant species, 138 plant species belonging to angiosperms plant group, 2 plants to pteridophytes plant group and 2 plants to gymnosperms plant group. Among under 53 families and 121 genera during 2014 to 2016. For each plant species scientific name, family name and habit are provided. A total identified 16 LC (Least Concern)  plant species with the help of floristic assessment belonging 13 families and 16 genera  were recorded in which family Fabaceae was represented by 4 species followed by Asteraceae, Apocynaceae, Amaranthaceae, Cactaceae, Pteridaceae, Dipterocarpaceae, Cupressaceae, Cyperaceae, Arecaceae, Acanthaceae, Pontederiaceae and Convolvulaceae only single species.
