In the present study, data collected for the conservation status following the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN, 2001) dealt with 77 species that belonged to 42 families. It was noted that 20 species (25.97%) were found to be endangered, 23 species (29.87%) vulnerable, 15 species (19.48%) rare and 19 species (24.67%) infrequent. Due to overgrazing, excessive collection, burning and other anthropogenic activities the plant resources of Hazar Nao hills are under high pressure. Therefore, there is a dire need to establish a satisfactory in-situ conservation policy for the sustainable utilization of plant resources in the sampled region.
