Abstract:  The Malani is an ethnic community inhabiting a remote village generally called as Republic of Malana, located in Parvati valley of Kullu district, Himachal Pradesh. The adjoining area of Malana is inhabited by Gujjars, Gaddis, and other rural communities. Since ages, these people have been utilizing their ambient plant resources for food, fodder, fibre, medicine, fuel, and other purposes. During ethnobotanical surveys conducted in 2000-2002 among the Malanis and other inhabitants of Parvati valley, first hand information on 35 plant species was recorded. The uses in details are described in the present communication.
