Abstract

A Glimpse of Vegetation and Threatened Medicinal Plant Diversity of Govind Wildlife Sanctuary, Garhwal Himalaya

Govind Wild Life Sanctuary (GWLS), situated in Uttarkashi  district of Uttarakhand, India, supports enormous plant diversity  including several threatened plants of high medicinal value. Despite of legal protection this protected area is facing severe threat due to  anthropogenic pressure, which in turn produces adverse natural  pressure. The forest and vegetation types including some highly medicinal plants and their habitats in GWLS have been highlighted in the present study.
