In this cram we present a version of plant species in the Tehsil Takht-e-nasratti by way of further information on life cycle, light frequency, habit, flowering period and habitat. The Flora is interesting because of the existence of together hills and plains in the area. The hills in the majority part of the area seem to be barren but many are rich in grasses, Rhazia stricta etc. The most significant Agriculture crop is the wheat which is not so abundant, and mostly raindependent. Aloe barbadensis is very common in grave yard. The weed like Cirsium arvense, Asphodelus tenuifolius, Medicago liciniata and Silene conoidea are very common in wheat crop. Among the Xerophyts, Zizyphus spp. Calotropis procera, Acacia spp. etc, are common in the area. Through this study, the 161 plant species were initiatedin the area where 25 monocotyledonous and 136 dicotyledonous species belonging to 52 families were identified and listed from diverse places in the area. Along with these presented 23 trees, 23 shrubs, 103 herb, 9 grasses and 3 parasite species. Among 52 families, Poaceae was the dominant with 17 species then Asteraceae and Papilionaceae both by 13 species. The region is extremely prosperous in biodiversity. Many fruits, especially Zizyphus species, Peganum hermala, Withania coagulans, Monotheca buxifolia, Fagonia cretica and Acacia nilotica are exhaustedannually due to non-availability of marketplace. The market accessibility has fine outcome on plants and on natives.
