A review on Berberis species reported from Gilgit-Baltistan and Central Karakoram National Park, Pakistan.

Tika Khan, Imtiaz Ahmed Khan, Abdul Rehman

Genus Berberis is medicinally, ecologically, commercially and ethnobotanically important yellow woody plants. There are two subspecies of Berberis pseudumbellata Parker found in Gilgit-Baltistan, however, since 1935 more than 33 researchers have reported fourteen (14) Berberis species and subspecies. Species found exhibit close morphological similarity. This review is compiled for the first time and will help researchers to overcome ongoing confusion during filed based discrimination. Berberis pseudumbellata Parker subsp. gilgitica is endemic to Gilgit-Baltistan and has become critically endangered.
