Abstract:  Gujarat has rich traditional knowledge associated with biodiversity. This indigenous knowledge has been acquired over ages and treasured by the local communities and the tribals, particularly those living in and around the forests and agro-ecosystems. Very little of this knowledge has been documented which coupled with alienation of younger generation from traditional lifestyles, further poses threat to its erosion. This paper briefly presents the extent of the traditional knowledge available in Gujarat, its contribution in biodiversity conservation and the threats of its erosion under changing life-style.
