About this book

Language: English

The Himalayas have always been considered a storehouse of biological diversity. There occur 21 forest types in the Himalayas, which itself is an indicator of the presence of a vast biodiversity. Uttarakhand State, which is a part of the Indian Himalayan system, is characterized by a rich diversity and rich heritage of wild edible plants. Wild edible plants have traditionally occupied an important position in the socio-cultural, spiritual and health arena of rural Uttarakhand. Most of the edible plants also possess medicinal properties. There are several wild edible plants that play a critical role in neutraceutics. In India, most rural inhabitants depend on wild edible plants to meet their additional food requirements. Sometimes the nutritional value of the wild edible plants is much higher than domesticated ones.

The present book reveals the presence of edible flora and their importance in Uttarakhand. The plants are placed in alphabetical order for the benefit of the reader. The numerous coloured photographs will make visual identification much easier. The purpose of Edible Plants of North West Himalaya (Uttarakhand) is to broadly indicate the general identification, known edible parts and their uses, nutritional value, caution for certain edible parts etc.
