Species like Anogeissus sericea Brandis var. nummularia King ex Duthie, Ceropegia vincaefolia Hook. and Chlorophytum borivilianum Sant. et Fernand., included in the red data book of India and species like Ensete superba Cheesman, Habenaria marginata Colebr., Viscum articulatum Burm.f., etc. restricted in this region of Rajasthan require conservation. The tradition of conservation of nature by way of dedicating forests to some deities and sprits was observed in the Garasia tribe.
