The assessment has resulted inrecording of total 535 angioperm species under 103 familiies and 370 genera. For each species scientific name, Bangla name (whenever available), family and habit are provided. Of 535 species, 178 represented by herbs, 110 by shrubs, 150 by trees, 87 by climbers and 10 by epiphytes.
