Abstract: 

In order to collect and determine medicinal plants of Kermanshah province, at first a list of medicinal plants and their localities was prepared based on the floristic list of the Kermanshah province mentioned as medicinal plants in the related references. Then, stands of the mentioned medicinal plants were referred according to the topographic maps and the extracted localities and after collecting medicinal plant specimens, herbarium specimens were prepared based on the traditional taxonomic methods. For each collected plant specimen, habitat characteristics including locality, altitude (elevation above sea level) and the other ecological characteristics of each location were recorded. Furthermore, local names and usable parts were recorded for each species including their local usage. To reassure accordance of the collected specimens with the prepared list of the medicinal plants, their identification and determination were carried out by the present related references. Collected information about each medicinal plant species was recorded in the form attached to the related herbarium specimen. The life forms of the determined medicinal plants were determined based on the Raunkiaer method. Altogether 208 medicinal species belonging to 198 genera and 72 families were determined.
