Abstract: The Northeast India region is rich in biodiversity due to high rainfall and plenty of sunlight coupled with unique bio-geographical positioning. It is known as the ‘Cradle of Flowering Plants’ because of remarkably rich and diverse flora. The valuable plant genetic resources of the region are being lost at an alarming rate due to varied human activities including shifting cultivation which have in turn led to the depletion of forest cover. Therefore, there is an urgent need for conservation, sustainable utilization and management of plant genetic resources of the region so as to meet the growing requirements of food, fodder, fibre, health, water and other needs.
