The flowering plants (angiosperms) represent the highest extent to which plants have evolved in the establishment of vegetation on land. They dominate every land area where plant life is possible. They also occur in freshwater and marine.Inthis study, a preliminary survey was conducted during the 2014 rainy season to determine the spatial biodiversity of of the dominant flowering plants of the Hadejia- Nguru wetlands (HNW). During the study, the wetlands were categorized into seven locations. In each location, survey of the dominant flowering plants was carried out by careful preparation of flowering plant and identified in each zone or location. Results of the survey have shown that the wetlands are covered by several invasive grasses such as Vossiacuspidate, Typhadominguensis, and several grasses which were actually not present in the past. Similarly, most of the tree plants found in most areas was those that are typically adapted to live in marshy areas such as Mitragynainermis, Phoenix reclinata, Acacianituda.  The survey has noted a changing pattern of the vegetation of the wetlands compared with the past. It was also evident thatpresently there are four distinct micro- vegetation types compared to the six reported by most researchers in the past.
