In Kashmir valley, the plants have been used for treating various diseases from ancient times. About 700 plant species are being used as medicine in one or other form in Kashmir valley. This knowledge regarding the use of medicinal plants was transmitted from generation to generation orally. This traditional knowledge regarding the use of medicinal plants is draining off due to modernization. Also a number of plant species have been rendered threatened due to various anthropogenic as well as natural threats like overgrazing, deforestation, building of roads, overexploitation, soil erosion, huge tourism influx etc. A survey was conducted in the Baramulla District of Kashmir to document the ethnobotany of the rare, vulnerable and endangered plants of the area. During the study 27 plants were documented along with their medicinal uses and status of conservation.
