Species composition and richness in cultivated medicinal and aromatic plants were studied in different areas of Iran. Results of present study showed that 54 species of medicinal and aromatic plants with a Shannon index of 0.64 were cultivated in Iran. Lamiaceae with 8 species and Asteraceae with 7 species were amongst the highest ranking plant families.
