Abstract: The presented research investigated the use of folk remedies among the people of Tehsil Pindigheb, District Attock of Pakistan. During the ethnobotanical survey, we documented indigenous knowledge and collected plant specimens which included medicinal plants. Through questionnaire, ethnomedicinal data was collected from key informants and local inhabitants in randomly selected villages. One hundred plant species belonging to 44 families were recorded as medicinal flora of the area. Due to construction of new housing colonies, modern agricultural practices and cultural changes within the community, the use of traditional knowledge and medicinal plant species are threatened day by day in the area. This study will provide help in future conservation strategies.
