Abstract

The aim of present research was to record the indigenous knowledge on medicinal plants of Parbat district, Nepal. Field trips were arranged to collect the plants and ethnobotanical information from the study area during 2011 to 2012. The paper dealt with ethnobotanical plants along with their local names, parts and ethnomedicinal uses prescribed by ethnic tribes Gurung, Magar and Majhi of the district. A total of 61 plant species belonging to 59 genera and 43 families had been used by the local tribes for curing various human diseases. The plant specimens were also collected dried, pressed, mounted on herbarium sheets and deposited to the Department of Environmental Science and Engineering, Kathmandu University. The investigation provided immense scope for the active principle analysis and clinical studies of these ethnomedicinal plants for future drug development.
