Exotic plants, Allelopathic effect, Shivamogga district



In this review study we have documented the list of exotic plant species in the Shivamogga district in India with additional information on habit and origin. During this study, a total of 63 exotic species belonging to 61 genera in 32 families were identified and listed from various localities in the district. Among them 11 number of the exotic species are native to Tropical America followed by South America with 10 species. Analysis of the habit shows that herbs having included 31 exotic species, followed by 17 trees and 15 shrubs. Among 32 families, Fabaceae is the most dominant family with 12 species followed by Asteraceae with 06 species. There is an imperative need to listing regional data on exotic species in order to study the impact on local vegetation and survey the worldwide pattern of species invasion.
