Abstract: Based on a field survey, 87 species belonging to 54 families, used by the local people of the Macchegaun, Kathmandu district, Nepal are reported. Local people have remarkable detailed knowledge of species identity, characteristics and their specific uses. These traditional knowledges and practices are disappearing particularly due to unplanned land use change and over-explotation of the species. Some species are under serious threat indicating urgent need of documentation of useful plants with their uses and indigenous practices. An attempt has also been made to recommend some conservation measures for preservation and sustainable uses of these species.
