Himachal Pradesh has rich diversity of medicinal flora right from its drier foothills to the high alpine moist meadows. This medicinal flora has been in use from generations for the basic therapeutic purposes by the local communities. Every region of the state has their own healthcare system and the local communities know how to use and conserve these useful natural resources for their future use in a sustainable manner. But, during the last decade a trend of collection of medicinal plants for economic purposes created an extra pressure on the existing wild populations. The present study has been carried out in the remote Dodra-Kwar tehsil of Shimla district. The region is bestowed with rich forests, stocked with a wealth of medicinal flora. The ethno medicinal information about the use of plants was collected from the local people with the aid of semi-structured interviews. The information was collected for the threatened ethnomedicinal flora of the region. A total of 28 Threatened Ethnomedicinal Plants (TEMPs) have been identified from the study region. Among them 8 plant species are IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Red listed.
