This study evaluates the checklist of tree species and regeneration status potential of species seedlings and saplings of Baturiya hadejia wetland game reserve. To determine the checklist and regeneration status potential of species seedlings and saplings, three Plots of 100mx100m2 were systematically laid in three habitats (Fadama, Upland and Swampy) sub plots of 5mx5m2 in a quadrate were laid to assess species seedlings and saplings regeneration potential. A total of 83 species belonging to 63 genera and 36 families were recorded. Of this 12 species appeared in (3) habitats, 22 species in (2) habitats and 49 species in (1). Fabaceae family were recorded with highest represented trees of (15 species) Moraceae (8 species), Rubiaceae (5 species), and the least represented families were recorded with (1 specie) respectively. Saplings were found to be with density of 77.1% stems/ha, and Seedlings with density of 34.7% stems/ha, the finding also recorded regeneration status potential in term of Good, Fair, Poor and Not regenerate. However study suggests conservation strategies to protect woody species against anthropogenic pressures, rather than following a strict protectionist approach in the management of the game.

Keywords: Checklist, Tree species, Regeneration, Seedlings and Saplings.
