Floristic diversity in Cold Desert regions of Uttarakhand Himalaya, India

Floristic diversity in Cold Desert regions of Uttarakhand Himalaya, India <jats:p>Cold desert regions of Uttarakhand are one of the least explored remote ecosystems in the Himalaya with fragmented database. To address the issue, the task of documenting the floristic diversity of cold deserts of Uttarakhand was taken up in the present study. A total of 932 taxa (908 species, 05 subspecies and 19 varieties) belonging to 371 genera and 76 families of angiosperms and gymnosperms were recorded. In view of conservation of plant diversity, methods such as in-situ conservation, popularizing cultivation of endemic, threatened and high value medicinal plants and controlling the livestock grazing can be adopted.</jats:p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Phytotaxa CrossRef
