were collected from Nilgiri Hills and Coimbatore, Tamilnadu and taxonomically authenticated. Herbarium of the species was submitted to the museum of the place of research studies. The samples were shade dried for a week. The materials were dried in the sun and then the shade for about 15 days. About 500g of the leaves, stems and roots of each V.punctatum, V.coriaceum and V.erubescens were powdered separately using a mechanical grinder in to a moderately coarse powder. By using the samples some of the proximate qualities were determined such as: Extractive values, Total ash and sulphated ash values, Acid insoluble ash value, Water soluble Ash value, Crude fibre content, Loss on Drying and including Fluorescence analysis (UV – 366 nm) and the results were tabulated to note down how far these species differ in their qualities each other.
