Study of medicinal plants in Darbhanga
The plants of medicinal importance are mostly wild whose cultivation is an essential requirement. Therefore, an attempt has been made to study the biodiversity and floristic composition of medicinal plants of Darbhanga. According to WHO, 20,000 plant species are used for medicine out of 2, 50,000 all over the world. Of these eight hundred species are being used commercially. In India, the rural population uses about 8000 herbal plants for medicine. India having a rich traditional knowledge of herbs in the Vedas and ancient days remains marginalized in the fields of research on plants and its medicinal use. The country has a rich herbal heritage and about1, 22,600 hectares of land is under cultivation for medicinal plants.
