Abstract:

The study was carried out in Phulwari-ki-nal Wildlife Sanctuary of Rajasthan with an objective to identify potential sites for promoting ecotourism. Plant wealth of the region was enumerated using vegetation samples and information obtained from vegetation samples like richness, diversity, density of all life forms were brought into GIS platform. Normalization and scaling techniques was adopted and weightage was given according to floral components to generate floral diversity map. Based on thematic maps plant diversity hotspot, tourism spots, path for nature walk and habitats for threatened plants and orchids distributions were identified to promote the Ecotourism in PLWS. © 2017, Institute of Integrative Omics and Applied Biotechnology.
