Ethno-Botanical Studies of Medicinal Plants ofDinga, District Gujrat, Punjab, Pakistan.

A series of ethno-botanical surveys were carried out in Dinga, District Gujrat, Punjab, Pakistan. The purpose of surveys was to collect indigenous traditional knowledge about medicinal plants and their uses through questionnaires and personal interviews of different age groups between 45 to 80 years during the field trips of local flora for the benefit of the community. Etnnomedicinal surveys were conducted from March 2013 to April 2013 in the vicinity of University of Gujrat (UOG), Pakistan. A total of 50 plant species belonging to 29 families are identified which are being used by local inhabitants of the study area. These medicinal plants were arranged with their botanical and vernacular names, family, habit, part used and ethnomedicinal uses. There were about 13 herbs, 12 shrubs and 25 trees of plants species documented in the study. Data analysis showed that the medicinal plants used to treat Asthma, cough, joint pain kidney problems, hepatitis, ulcerative colitis, typhoid fever and various other chronic diseases. Due to lack of interest of new age generations and modern life style there is possibility of losing this precious knowledge in the near future. It was the primary struggle to know about the medicinal importance of plants with special reference to their uses. It is hypothesized that such type of studies should be conducted in the future in study area.
