Ecological studies are directed towards determining the influence of environment on the life of plants and crops. The aim of autecological investigations has been the study of interrelationships of different environmental conditions on the life processes of a single plants species. Such studies help a great deal in understanding the behaviour of a particular plant, important from man’s point of view. Present study undertaken to know in detail of the phytosociology and morphology of Cassia tora Linn. of family Caesalpinoidae as well as the physiological process that evolves in the germination and the relation between the plant and the soil. Cassia tora Linn. a rainy season flowering plant, has wide spread in open grassland. There is large number of associates and some are with very high frequency. But vegetation of the area where it grows is of normal Raunkier forms. Pollination is generally entemophyllus type. Being a leguminous plant the percentage of nitrogen is high and ratio of protein and soluble nitrogen is also. Within formation of seedling the ratio of protein and soluble nitrogen increases as soluble nitrogen percentage is high in case of seedling. In soil plant analysis it was observed that plant tissues are not having appreciable amount of calcium though it is growing in calcium rich soil. Potassium is poor in relation to the percentage in soil. The present study indicates that percentage of sodium present in plant is poorest among the other minerals.
