Abstract:

A survey work is carried out to study the alien and invasive flora of different parts of valley district in Manipur, during the period of February 2011 to December, 2014, so as to investigate the information of the invasive species of herbs shrubs and vines. These categories are the successful plant species which are grown and effects the plant diversity i.e. natural flora of Valley district and can withstand in the prevailing environment. In the present scenario of the valley districts of Manipur maximum invasive species recorded i.e. E. adenophorum (Spreng.) King & H. followed by A. haustonianum Mill., Mikania micrantha H.B.K, Lantana camara L., Chromolaena odorata ( L.) King & Robinson, Achyranthes aspera L. etc. However, some invasive parasites like Cuscuta reflexa Roxb. and Loranthus scurrula L. also interfere the forest flora. M. micrantha H.B.K. , Momordica dioica, Dioscorea bulbifera L., D. alata L., Thunbergia grandiflora Wall., Smilax lanceifolia Roxb., Entada phaseoloides, etc. are some of the vines showing green carpeting on the roof of the forest flora is also remarkable. Therefore, necessary steps should be taken up to control the luxuriant growth of the invasive plant species, So that they do not compete / interfere with the indigenous forest of Manipur.
