Pinus gerardiana Wall. locally known as ‘chilgoza’ is near endemic and en dangered to Himalayan region. The species has aptly been descri bed as the “ Champion of Rocky Mountains” as it grows under extremely rough site conditions. Being a flavorsome wild edible, the chilgoza pine nuts ha ve high demand in local, national and international ma rkets and fetch very high prices. Due to rampant harvesting of cones, natural regeneration of this s pecies is being fatally hampered. In present study… CONTINUE READING
