Ethnobotanical studies of Mahakaushal region of (M.P.), India
Ethno botany is a new discipline studying the knowledge and traditional practice of the indigenous and ethnic societies in conservation and use of biodiversity for human health and nutrition. Keeping this view in mind an ethno-medico-botanical survey of some important Angiosperms of Mahakaushal region has been carried out from October 2018 to October 2019. Mahakaushal region is a tribal region and different tribes like Baiga, Gond, Bharia, Bhils, and Oraon live in this region. These tribal people use different plants as home remedies, for building and thatching huts, making musical instruments etc. During the study, altogether fifty-seven plant species belonging to 20 families were collected. Amongst the plants located in the study area Wrightia tinctoria, Hygrophila spinosa, Gloriosa superba, Curculigo orchioides and Costus speciosus have medicinal properties and used by local tribes.
