This study delves into the diversity of grass species within the Shivaram Wildlife Sanctuary, located in Telangana State, identifying 51 species belonging to 36 genera and 7 tribes. Among the seven tribes, Andropogoneae dominated with 18 species and 15 genera, followed by Paniceae with 12 species and 9 genera, Cynodonteae with 9 species and 8 genera and Eragrostideae, Aristideae, Paspaleae, and Bambuseae are represented by each single genus and 6, 3, 2, and 1 species respectively. Preserving this diversity is vital for ecosystem resilience amid environmental changes. Conservation efforts are needed to safeguard the sanctuary's grasslands, which are ecologically and culturally significant. Our research informs wildlife management and habitat restoration strategies, emphasizing holistic biodiversity conservation and sustainability approaches.

Keywords: Biodiversity, Grasslands, Conservation, Poaceae, Protected area.
