Abstract

The paper aims to study the impact of season on the diversity of leaf beetle population in Garbhanga Reserve Forest and how it inflicts damage to the vegetation through its different feeding habits in a wide variety of host plants. A total of 1673 individuals belonging to 24 species under 14 genera and 5 subfamilies were recorded from the five chosen plots.
