Indigenous knowledge of medicinal use of rangeland plants is a topic of interest in many countries around the world, including Iran, which is obtained by collecting of information from the natives of a region The aim of this study was to identify medicinal plants and investigate consumption instruction of them in the pastures of Ahar city, which has not been reported before. In this study, data collection was performed using interviews and designed questionnaires, and information such as local name, medicinal properties, method of use and medicinal organs were recorded. The results showed that a total of 60 pharmaceutical species belonging to 20 families were identified in the studied region. The largest number of species belonged to the Lamiaceae family with 11 species and the Asteraceae family with10 species. Most plant species were used to treat gastrointestinal diseases and the least used medicinal species were related to skin diseases and wounds. It seems that due to limited resources, the development of employment-generating projects based on the cultivation and development of compatible medicinal plants withthe ecological conditions of the region, can be a good way to preserve existing plant resources and it is an important step towards achieving an oil-free economy.
