Abstract:

Plants play one of the most important roles in providing nutrition and therapeutics to human beings and animals. Several research studies were published in different areas of the world focusing on the food content and medicinal value of plants. In rural areas, herbal products are the main source of medications for all types of diseases. The current study summarizes the uses of traditional medicinal plants by the tribal people of various parts of the state of West Bengal, India. The review highlights the use of 105 medicinally important plant species with their taxonomical features, ethno botanical uses, and pharmacological properties.
