The purpose of this study was to document the indigenous folk knowledge of the inhabitants of the Nagzira Wild Life Sanctuary in eastern Maharashtra, a region of the Indian subcontinent long known for its extraordinary beauty and biodiversity. One important result of the survey that was conducted of the inhabitants of this rugged hill country is that it revealed a total of 70 different plant species having ethnobotanical and ethnomedicinal uses. Taxonomically, the plants used by the villagers of this area were classified under 32 families of angiosperms.
