Abstract

In Uttarakhand, India, the plants have been used for treating various diseases and for other purposes from ancient times. This knowledge regarding the use of plants as medicines and other purposes was transmitted from generation to generation only orally and is draining off day by day. Besides a large number of plant species have been rendered threatened due to various anthropogenic as well as natural activities. A survey was conducted in the Karwa pani area of Doon valley, Uttarakhand to document the ethnobotany of the plants present in the said area. During the study 54 plants belonging to 29 different families were documented along with their ethnobotanical uses.

Keyword : Ethnobotany, Ethnomedicine, Tribal people, Karwa pani sub-tropical forest.
