Abstract

Gujarat is the state which has two gulfs in its 1600 km (approximately) area of coast out of 7517 km (approximately) coast line of India. Much work on diversity of mangroves and microbial diversity has been done in this area, but research on diversity of halophytes has not been much done. Attention was paid to listing, distribution and ecological aspects of plants growing in coastal areas. An attempt was made to study the diversity indices like Shannon’s index, Simpson index and Pielou’s index of coastal flora at 3 different habitats viz., marshy, fresh wetland and inland saline habitat during 3 seasons in Bhal region falling under Bhavnagar district (Gujarat). Results showed little variations for the indices for marshy locations (Sonrai Creek) during monsoon, winter and summer. In contrast, these measures of diversity marginally fluctuated at freshwater, saline and grassland localities.
