Abstract

The present study describes anthropogenic pressure in some selected areas*(Chowki, Noor Gala, Kain Gala, Chetrora, Kotteri najam khan) of district Bagh in the lesser Himalayas. The questionnaire and field sampling surveys were used to estimate threats in the study area. The study was conducted from August 2017 to December 2017.The five model villages (Chowki, Noor Gala, Kain Gala, Chetrora, Kotteri najamkahn) of Baghwere selected to determine anthropogenic pressure. A total of 25 plants were identified used for the treatment of different diseases. The data was analyzed by student’s t test and one way analysis of variance ANOVA with spss 16.0 version. The mean concentration of all collected 25 plants was as followed: 33.00 ± 22.249> 29.400 ± 24.89> 29.800 ± 24.652> 27.60 ± 18.474> 42.20 ± 24.118> 34.40 ± 25.38> 27.600 ± 21.067> 30.60 ± 24.306> 42.600 ± 30.802> 42.600 ± 30.802> 40.000 ± 33.793> 29.000 ± 27.166> 28.000 ± 27.573> 25.000 ± 23.420> 19.000 ± 17.507> 27.200 ± 21.405> 34.200 ± 19.537> 35.400 ± 11.866> 40.000 ± 10.000> 38.800 ± 10.568> 30.200 ± 17.824> 26.800 ± 25.014> 22.800 ± 15.304> 12.200 ± 7.563> 11.400 ± 6.229> 13.600 ± 7.092 respectively. Quantitative comparison of human population with collected plants in all selected sites were showed that there was significant difference among them (p=0.008).
