Abstract: Shekhawati region of Rajasthan specially the hilly tracts of Lohargal, Mansadevi, Khetri, Babai, Sakambari, Singhana and Harshnath areas are endowed with rich vegetation and the local people nicely learnt to use the area’s vegetation resources including health care. These people successfully treat many difficult diseases using plant-based medicines. Recent survey for ethnomedicinal plants among the people of these localities recorded the use of 48 species of dicotyledonous and 2 species of monocotyledonous plants. Different types of uses of the recorded plants are presented and discussed in the article.
