Flora in Ranthambore National Park

The vegetation of Ranthambore plays an important role in the ecosystem of this National Park.

The flora in Ranthambore National Park is primarily of the mixed deciduous type. The grass, shrubs and leaves of trees provide deer and other herbivores with their sustenance. These herbivores are the main prey of the tigers of Ranthambore. Hence we see that the flora of Ranthambore is an essential part of the local food chain.

Among the interesting flora in Ranthambore National Park is one of the largest Banyan trees in India. This can be seen near the Jogi Mahal hunting lodge in Ranthambore National Park.
