Gurung ethnobotany and baseline floristic survey for biodiversity conservation

The Himalayan Mountains are considered the "hotspot" for biodiversity conservation because of high species richness, endemism, and its threatened status by human activities.Based on these maps, 108 ecological plots were established in the resource areas located at various elevations (1500m to 3000m) to examine the composition and structure of forest types. Corresponding ethnobotanical data on the usage of woody plants were gathered using semi-structured interviews, transect walks, and participant observations.
