Abstract
"Euphorbia caducifolia is a common of rocky areas. It regenerates easily through dispersed seeds either alone or in association with over canopy trees. Once established in the rocky area, this species ameliorates microclimate including soil conditions that suited for regeneration and growth of other species. This facilitative effects E. caducifolia can be utilized for rehabilitation of rocky area with crakes only the soil site. It provides habitat for establishment of many species like A. racemosus, Commiphora wightii, M. emarginatus through seed broadcasting during monsoon period to provide better moisture conditions for seed germination. The established plants of E. caducifolia may facilitates regeneration and growth of the broadcasted species and provide protection from browsing to the germinated seedlings thereby helpe in vegetation development and productivity enhancement of degraded hills."
