Abstract: The principal of this thesis is .India is very rich country in species diversity and also preserve lots of endemic species. Gujarat is also particularly rich in biodiversity owing to its remarkable diversity in geophysical and climatic conditions. newlineSabarkantha is a district of Gujarat state having hilly and forest area near the range of Arvalli hills. The district Sabarkantha is situated in the north eastern part of Gujarat state between 23°03 and 24°30 north latitudes and 72°43 and 73°39 east longitudes. It covers an area of 7,390 km² of 13 talukas. newlineExtensive field trips were organized during the year 2010-2012 in R.D.F. Poshina Forest range area of Sabarkantha district in North Gujarat. Forest areas and villages of such regions were frequently visited, to collect the information about the forest wealth and uses of plant species were noted. newlineFloristicily the R. D. F. Poshina range forest is representing 258 plant species, 193 genera belonging to 69 families. Sub class polypetalae representing 126 plant species, gamopetalae representing 82 plant species and monoclamadae representing 50 plant species . newlineEthnobotany is the study of how people of a particular culture and region make of use of indigenous plants. Ethnobotanists explore how plants are used for such things as food, shelter, medicine, clothing, hunting, and religious ceremonies. Survey on ethnobotanical practice of the area showed a good number tree species have been used for the preparation of various ethnomedicinaly (71 species), agricultural implements (16 species), household implements (22 species), musical instruments (5 species) and sacre species (44 species). newline newline
