Status of threatened ethno- medicinal plants found in sub- alpine areas of Ukhrul and Senapati districts of Manipur
Survey of threatened ethno-medicinal plants used by the communities residing in Manipur was carried out in the sub-alpine areas of Shirui and Dzukou valley of Ukhrul and Senapati districts of Manipur. A total of 18 taxa belonging to 16 families and 16 genera were collected and assessment for their distribution pattern, status, threats and conservation aspects were studied. Moreover, information regarding 18 taxa traditional collections and medicinal uses was also collected from the surrounding villagers. The present study records that the distribution pattern of the threatened plants was based on the differences in habitats and niches. Majority of the plant species population is drastically reduced due to several factors like habitat loss, overexploitation, improper collection methods and forest fires.
