Main Article Content
During recent botanical explorations, we recorded three interesting plant species from the alpine regions (>3500m) of the Uttarakhand State in the western Himalaya.Â After a detailed scrutiny of the literature and herbarium specimens, we ascertain their identity and report them as additions to the flora of Uttarakhand.Â In this paper descriptions of these species along with their phenology, distribution, photographs, ecology and phytogeographical notes have been presented.
