In their report on Medicinal Plants Sector in Northern India: An Ethno-Medicinal Appraisal they mention that India is one of the world's top 12 mega biodiversity countries with 10 bio-geographic regions and two biodiversity hotspots. The climatic and altitudinal variations, coupled with varied ecological habitats of the country, have contributed to the development of immensely rich vegetation with a unique diversity in medicinal plants. The medicinal plant species have made an outstanding contribution in treatment of several disorders like memory loss, osteoporosis, immune and age-related problems, and even some deadly diseases like AIDS and cancer. In recent past, the traditional knowledge based treatment has gained a wide recognition worldwide due to an increased faith in herbal medicine in view of its lesser side effects compared to allopathic medicine. The main objectives of present study were to explore the potential in medicinal plant resources, to understand the challenges and opportunities within the medicinal plant sector, and also to suggest recommendations based upon the present state of knowledge for the establishment and smooth functioning of the medicinal plants sector besides improving the living standards of the underprivileged communities.

The traditional medical systems of Northern India such as Ayurvedia and Tibetan are part of time tested culture and honored by people still today. These traditions have successfully set an example of natural resource use in curing many complex diseases for more than three thousand years. The plants used for various therapies are readily available, easy to transport, and have relatively long shelf life. The most important advantage of herbal medicine is the minimal side effects, and relatively low cost compared to the synthetic medicines. The success of medicinal plants sector mainly depends on the awareness and interest of the farmers and other stakeholders, supportive government policies, availability of assured market, profitable prize levels and access to simple and appropriate agro-techniques. The successful establishment of medicinal plant sector may help in development of cheaper drugs, maintain ecosystem balance, prevent extinction of highly prized species and improve the living standards of ethnic communities. They are thankful to all those scholars, authors and scientists who provided significant inputs and valuable suggestions during preparation of this manuscript.

The measures — fee deregulation and the funding cut — were at the heart of the Coalition's university overhaul, which seemed doomed to fail for a second time in the Senate and have now been split into two separate pieces of legislation. The original bill faced heavy opposition, with only one crossbench senator out of eight publicly prepared to back it — far short of the six votes required. But hiving off the budget cut to a separate vote has not won over the vote — with at least five crossbench senators telling the ABC they will not vote for the core deregulation legislation.
