Gymnosperms are plant of the great values, they have the very rich evolutionary background and the composition of the metabolites is of great economic and the medicinal values .Among the gymnopserms there are three major lines of the evolution, these are the Cycadales ,coniferales and the genatales lines of emergences . coniferals are the most abundant gymnosperms , they have all together three families ,one of them is Pinaceae ,podocarpaceae ,cuppresaceae .Podocarpans are the assemblages of the plant which have the tree architectures ,they are evergreen and have the longitudinal branches ,leaves are arranged spirally as well as in  the  whorl and they are needled and in some species they are as  microphylls .In this review article we are presenting some of the aspects of the  genera of  podocarpaceae family entitled as the Prumnopitys , this genera  is well distributed in the Alps mountain series .overall the genera contains the 11 species as whole ,the genera is valuable from the commercial point of view with respect to the wood and the medicinal values of the bark .IUCN  categories the genera as  the valuable and vulnerable and it needs protection and conservation for the genera and great  line of evolution .
