The District Barmer belongs to state Rajasthan which is important part of Thar Desert. This region contains a number of endangered and vulnerable medicinal plants used as drugs and medicines in pharmaceutical industries. Ethno-medicinal plants of this area are used to treat and cure various diseases. We have collected the information through survey in region of Barmer. Local communities and villagers of Barmer District as Kalbelia, Lohar, Jogi, Ojha, Nath, Bheel, Bhopa, Baba, Bhagda, Mangniyaar, Langa, Banjara and Raika are there. They have huge knowledge of ethno-medicinal plants that are used in their daily life. Diminishing of plant species of this Thar region is because of anthropogenic activities. This study mainly focuses on survey, conservation, awareness, of ethno-medicinal endangered plants. Currently requirement of legal documentation and record of ethno-medicinal traditional knowledge, it will be useful in making new drug discovery in the future.
