Abstract: Pteridophytes (fern and fern allies) by virtue of their possessing great variety and fascinating foliage have drawn the attention and admiration of horticulturists and plant lovers for centuries. They are represented by about 305 genera, comprising more than 10,000 species all over the world. About 191 genera and more than 1000 species are reported from India. Medicinal value of pteridophytes is known to man for more than 2000 years. In the present article an attempt has been made to compile the pharmacological, clinical and medicinal uses of some common pteridophytes available in Rajasthan. This group of plants has least been exploited for the medicinal purpose, hence this article may be useful for further exploration of ferns and fern allies found in this area.
