Abstract: The WHO has estimates that a minimum 20,000 plant taxa have recorded medicinal uses and present demand for medicinal plant is approximately US $ 1.4 billion per year. The demand for medicinal plant based raw material is growing at the rate of 15 to 20 per cent annually and according to an estimate of WHO, the demand for medicinal plant is likely to increase more than US $ 5 trillion in 2050. In India, the medicinal related trade is estimated to be approx. US $ 1 billion per year (Joshi et al. 2004). An estimated 25 per cent of prescription drugs and 11 per cent of drugs considered essential by WHO are derived from plants, therefore, documentation of the traditional therapeutic know how could lead to the discovery of new drugs as well as contribute to the conservation, sustainable management and use of plant resources (Simbo, 2010). newlineDuring the past few years, considerable interest has been generated around the concept of new phytomedicines. Most of the World s forests and other areas are being explored and sampled, native peoples are being interviewed and watched, and pharmaceutical companies are making contacts and large investments in the hope of identifying drugs for historic and more modern applications. While the concept of medicines from plant is not new, the enormous, unexplored chemical diversity available within the plant kingdom holds tremendous promise for additional weapons in the continuing struggle against diseases. By working together for sustainable development of natural plant resources with a fair sharing of profits, business, citizens and society will benefit. Opportunities in phytomedicines should continue to expand and we will have improved medical treatment, preservation of natural areas, and plants for tomorrow. newlineMedicinal plants are used by 80 % of people from developing countries to fulfil their primary healthcare needs, occupying a key position on plant research and medicine. Taking into account that, besides their pharmaceutical importance, these plants contribute greatly to ecosystems s
