Abstract—International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) committee for threatened plant species indicates that one in ten species of vascular plants on the earth is endangered or threatened due to commercial exploitation and international trade. This may lead to gene erosion in next 20- 30 years. Rheum emodi is among the top of that list. Therefore, it has been identified top priority species for conservation and cultivation. Seeds of Rheum emodi, a threatened medicinal plant of North-western Himalaya collected from natural populations at the different regions of high altitude were germinated under different conditions by giving different treatments to form seedlings. It was observed that pre-chilling treatment of seeds for four weeks and seed coat removal proved most effective in enhancing seed germination. This process ensures mass propagation and establishment of Rheum emodi at easily approachable altitudes which determines the success of survival strategy of this species. 

Index Terms—chilling, conservation, germination, gibberellic acid, rheum emodi
