Abstract

The present study deals with the documentation of macrophyte diversity of Barbilabeel, located in the district of Nalbari, Assam. We recorded total 41 species belonging to 25 families, out of which 5 species were free floating, 14 species were rooted emergent with floating leaves, 4 species were rooted submerged and 18 species were marshy marginal. The study on the use pattern of variety of macrophytes of Barbilabeel revealed that 4 species are used as natural fertilizer, 4 species are used as cattle feed, 2 species are used as fish feed, 14 species are used as vegetables and fruits, 17 species are used as medicines, three species are used for religious purposes and other 6 species are used for household activities. During the study period it was seen that the Barbilabeel is facing tremendous anthropogenic as well as natural pressures. Hence, it is essential to aware the local people for conservation of the beel that supports diversified macrophytic growth as well as the sustainable use of bioresources of Barbilabeel.
