On the basis of field survey of plants, it is resulted that 86 species under 40 families, showed their presence in the campus which were collected, identified and listed.  Out of 86 species, 63 are trees, 9 species are shrubs and 14 are herbs.  The name of the plants with family, local name and medicinal uses, were enumerated.  The major resource of traditional medicines is from the nature. In order to maintain the ecological balance and to further sustainable development, plant species of economic and ecological importance are present in the study area.  So, these plant species superficially depict the composition of flora of Sri Parasakthi College Campus.  However, composition of annual herbaceous flora may vary in different seasons.  Therefore, these species can be utilized keeping in view the idea of sustainable development and utilization.
