The present investigation “Studies on Traditional medicinal plants in mid Himalayan region of Himachal Pradesh” was undertaken to study the traditional medicinal plants wealth of the area which lies between 31º-5´ and 31º-10´ North latitudes and 77º-22´-30´´ and 77º-30´´ East longitudes of theog forest division. This area is mostly situated in the west of Shimla District and comes under Theog and Kotkhai Sub-divisions. The traditional medicinal uses of 48 species have been documented, based on the interactions with herbal healers, local Vaids, rural women, graziers and old experienced and knowledgeable informants. There is a great scope for further pharmacological research on some of these species. It is of prime importance to document the existing plant resources, which would be beneficial in formulating policies for their sustainable use, conservation and propagation. This fundamental approach of local inventory will help to enrich and strengthen the holistic approach of national and global biodiversity enumerations.
