Distribution and utilization pattern of herbal medicinal plants in Uttarakhand Himalaya: A case study

Sunil Prasad and JMS Tomar

The present study was carried out in forest fringe area villages of Garhwal Himalaya to understand the distribution and utilization patterns of medicinal plants. We found 32 plant species that are being used by local communities. Among these plant species, most of the species were found frequently distributed. As per the utilization pattern, 7 medicinal plant species were found underutilized while 5 species were recorded as over-utilized species. The study recommends a sustainable use of over-utilized species and commercial utilization of underutilized species.
