Abstract

Uttara Kannada with its luxuriant tropical climate coupled with heavy rainfall harbours a large number of seasonal wetlands, which are inhabited by diverse wetland plants. These wetland plants are of diverse habitats as they may be aquatic, semiaquatic or of moist soils. Different localities were selected throughout the district and studied for their species composition, diversity, richness across different habitats, families, etc. Many wetland plants were found to be endemic and endangered having many economical uses due to their medicinal properties, edibility, etc.
