Flora of Sariska Tiger Reserve

The biodiversity of Sariska is of great significance. The dry deciduous forest is abreast with Dhok trees majorly. Soft inclines to steep tilts constitute most of the tree shelter. On the slanted fringes, you can see sturdy Salar trees while Khair and Cheela blossom amongst valley beds. Huge vibrant trees of Aam and Jamun can also be witnessed on the swampy floor and along the nallah banks. The vast floor of the grassland is shrouded in species of Ber and Adusa. Meanwhile, Grewia grows like a grain species, along with these grains, the dried fallen leaves of Dhok trees provide nourishment to the herbivores during months of scanty produce. In the monsoon season, continuous rainstorms drench the wilderness into a verdant green as greenery blooms amidst ample waterfalls. Similarly, the months of late spring witness arid woods.
