Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) allow portable mobile devices to establish communication path without having any central infrastructure. In the multicast routing protocol the source based tree and core based tree used for the multicast routing they both are help in the AODV and DVMRP. In this paper the authors describe the various types of the source and core based tree for the multicast routing protocol. In this paper they give the comparisons and the operations which they both are perform. They also describe the various characteristics of the AODV and the DVMRP.
