A survey of medicinal plants of Jajarkot district, Nepal.
National Herbarium and Plant Laboratories, Kathmandu, Nepal.
The medicinal plants used by most of the healers or knowledgeable adults from local flora as remedies are discussed. Sixty species (including 2 species pteridophytes, 2 species monocotyledons and 56 species dicotyledons), and 25 types of diseases have been identified in these areas through this field work. It seems to be appropriate to document the herbal folklore for scientific research. At the same time it may lend the helping hand in the conservation of plant biodiversity of the area as well.
