Abstract

The investigation was carried out in order to explore the existing floristic composition of the Miyawaki plantation, recently developed in the Saurashtra University campus, Rajkot. The main aspect of the study is to prepare an ethnobotanical and pharmacological inventory of the recorded plant species from the study area. The fieldwork was conducted for a period of four months regularly in the study area. This study revealed that most of the species as documented are total 71 plant species belonging to 62 genera and 32 families, could be used for the various medicinal purposes from Miyawaki plantation. Present investigation provides a huge lump of ethnobotanical significance and it is an urgent need to document uses of plants for future domestication.
