Effect of copper concentration was studied in the plants within the Malanjkhand Copper Mining Project (MCP), Balaghat, Madhya Pradesh (India). Copper affects vegetation were determined through biochemical parameter (paper chromatography) in the tree species like Tectona grandis, Mangifera indica, Butiamonosperma and Madhuca indica which were exposed to different copper dust concentration load for shortduration. Variations in biochemical parameter like different pigments in the leaves were separated by paper chromatography found significant in difference. This variation can be used as indicator of copper concentration for early diagnosis of stress as a maker for physiological damage to plants prior to the onset of visible injury symptoms. The present study reflects the elevated concentration of copper in the associated plant species within the Malanjkhand Copper Mining Site
