Abstract:

Extensive surveys were conducted to record conservation status of nine economically important species of the Hindu Raj Mountains, Northern Pakistan. The species included Colchicum luteum, Ephedra gerardiana, Litsea monopetala, Neolitsea cuipala, Podophyllum emodi, Quercus glauca, Rhododendron arboreum, Ulmus chumlia and Ulmus wallichiana. Data was collected from almost all the habitats, of the historical range of the species; broadly falling into the subtropical scrub temperate and alpine ecosystems. It was concluded that Quercus glauca is completely vanished from its natural habitat wiz. the lower Hindu Raj. Genetic diversity of Ulmus chumlia and Litsea monopetala is squeezed to the extent of Critically Endangered. Neolitsea cuipala, Ulmus wallichiana, Rhododendron arboreum, Ephedra gerardiana, Podophyllum emodi and Colchicum luteum are entered into the range of Endangered Category. Root causes for the genetic erosion of each species were workedout and measures for their recovery/ rehabilitation have been elaborated. The paper identifies 14 hotspots areas in Hindukush Region for rehabilitation and recovery of these species.
