Ecological studies on some strata of vegetation have been done under varied microclimate in Paschim Medinipur of West Bengal13. But the spectrum analysis of vegetation in the site is not yet been studies well. The paper deals with heterogeneous but mixed sal (Shorea robusta Gaetn. f.) dominated dry deciduous lateritic forest of Binpur-I community Development Block (CDB) in Jhargram District in West Bengal. It reflects dominated tree species sal and its associates including some aspects of ground cover. Canopy cover of the forest is bi-layered which is more or less leafless during summer (February) with new sprouting of leaves but at the end of March no old leaves were observed though it shows luxuriant growth of shoots and floral buds (inflorescence) to become scenic. Forest fires cease plant covers and destroy growth cover at ground. So, the ground becomes almost barren due to scattered loss or destruction of visible form of species as a part or whole. A large number of climbers show their woody appearance but exhibits leafless. At the end of the month, some plants show luxuriant blooming of flowers. The scenic beauty attracts avifauna and the forest becomes beautiful in the premises of Forest Ecosystem.
