Abstract
India ranks sixth under world's twelve mega bio-diversity zones. Out of these, two of them exist in our country. India possesses tremendous ecological bio-diversity. It contains 5 % of the world's bio-diversity on 2 % of the earth's surface. The biodiversity in our country is unique in nature and its in-situ and ex-situ conservation is very well needed. In recent years, the global demand of herbs has led to a quantum jump in volume of medicinal plants traded within and across the countries. The medicinal plants have been identified as one of the most important plant diversities for rural development. The use of plants as medicine is as old as human civilization itself. India is home to about 15000 to 18000 of flowering plants of which about 8000 plant species are recognized as medicinal plants and are being used by various traditional systems of medicine.
