The Pakasura Hills remained botanically unexplored so far and four seasonal explorations were completed during 1957-58. The slopes of the mountain which reach an altitude of 2,097 M. show zonations in their vegetation represented by the Southern Tropical Thom Type, Tropical Secondary Dry Deciduous Type, Nilgiri Sub Tropical Evergreen Type and Wet Temperate Type of Forests. Some of the plants introduced on the Nilgiris have become naturalised and run wild adding new elements to its floristic composition. The collections from this area include species of plants which are not recorded by Fyson and Gamble for the Nilgiris though some of them are reported by the latter as occurring in the Western Ghats in a very general way.
