Lakes are the most productive and biologically rich endangered ecosystems and they function as an interface between land and water systems and its Biodiversity severely are threatened globally by inappropriate management measures taken for protection of Lake Shorelines. To bear out the point of the Biodiversity Study of Lake Shoreline of Bengaluru peri urban area and its management, 7 lakes namely Dorekere lake, Hosakerehalli lake and Subramanyapura lake, Margondanahalli Hosakere lake, Kommaghatta lake, Bandematta lake and Byramangala lake were selected for sampling in the peri-urban area of Vrishabhavathi river basin in Byramangala series. Biodiversity Study for the Identification of Flora and Fauna in the Shoreline of Studied lakes were carried out by following the methods of William (2006), Subramanian, (2005; 2009), Mark et al.,(2000), Richard et al.,(2002), Krushnamegh Kunte (2008),Jayaram, (1999),Rema and Indra (2009), Hutchins et al., (2003); Nelson, (2006); Quentin Richard and Moore (2008), Fredrick et al., (2011), Bookhout (1994), Donald and Richard (1970), MeenakshiVenkataraman (2010), Subramanian and Sivaramakrishnan (2007) and Karen Edelstein (1999). The overall recorded number of species of Flora and Fauna in the study area were recorded between 146 species to 171 species. They were found to be highest in number of species presence is due to recent rejuvenation and plantation programmes carried out in the studied lakes, the local associations and citizens have also adopted the plants for the maintenance and protection, are in the less populated zone, and are situated away from the village and near to reserve forest cover.
