Abstract:
The present investigation “Studies on important medicinal plants of mid Himalayan region of Himachal Pradesh” was undertaken to study the plant wealth of the area with main emphasis on medicinal plants. The study area lies between North latitudes 31º-5´ and 31º-10´ and East longitudes 77º-22´-30´´ and 77º-30´. This area comes under Theog and Kotkhai Sub-divisions and is mostly situated in the west of Shimla District. Out of the total collected plants, 244 species have been designated as having medicinal importance and based on the available authentic literature, they are classified in the tabular form with their family, common names, parts used Medicinal properties & diseases cured. There is a great scope for further pharmacological research on some of these species. It is of prime importance to document the existing plant resources, which would be beneficial in formulating policies for their sustainable use, conservation and propagation. This fundamental approach of local inventory will help to enrich and strengthen the holistic approach of national and global biodiversity enumerations.
