Considering phytospectroscopy of plants in Barasat Govt. College Campus [Barasat, North 24-Parganas, West Bengal], present effort enumerates that from a total of 125 species of vascular plants, the biological spectrum is as follows: Ph: Ch: Hcr: Cr: Th:: 44.8(%): 27.2(%): 16(%): 9.6(%): 2.4(%). This phanero-chamaephytic phytoclimate is normal under tropical, warm, humid geoclimate. Higher percentage of chamaephytes is due to paucity in canopy development permitting sun light to enhance these plants; this causes changes in microhabitats and regeneration-niche. Poor representation of hemicryptophyts and therophytes and abundance of cryptophytes decipher that the soil milieu is highly disturbed and ultimately it fails to act as natural seed bank. Cluster analysis shows that the phytoclimate has closest affinity to Bardhaman and Hooghly Districts; Nadia is rather somewhat distant.

Key words : Phanero-chamaephytic phytoclimate, soil milieu, natural seed bank, tree diagram.
