Abstract: Mukundpur forest range is situated in Amarpatan Tahsil of Satna district of Madhya Pradesh India. Thisstudy area is under high ecological stress for mining purposes. For assessment of biodiversity vegetation sampling was done. The calculation of frequency, density and IVI (Important value Index) for the species of herbs have been done. The threat and conservation status is assessed by Normal Distribution Principle. In the present study the 20 herbs species have been found. There are no species of herbsin Category-4. The 5 species which are Category-3 are Mimosa pudica, Sida veronicaefolia, Sida cordifolia, Solanum xanthocarpum and Rauwolfia serpentine.
