The present vegetal investigations were aimed at the National Park Reserves Chinji (Talagang). The area of the park was surveyed thoroughly and three study sites were selected in the park, keeping in view the following physiogeogrphic factors:

Nature of vegetation cover, density, frequency and coverage of plant species, species composition, water regimes, extent of desertification, level of salinity and sodicity, soil texture and structure, soil profile, topography. Following three plant communities in Chinji were recognized on the bases of importance value.

S1/Q1 Cynodon - Acacia - Dodonaea
S2/Q2 Cynodon - Dodonaea - Acacia
S3/Q3 Cynodon - Dodonaea - Eulaliopsis - Cymbopogon
