Ethnobotany is a distinct branch of natural science dealing with various aspects such as medicine, religious, cultural, agricultural instruments and several others disciplines. The ethnomedicinal plant survey was carried out during 2012-14 to document the folk medicinal plants used by tribes residing in villages of Sabarkantha district, Gujarat. Fifteen wild plant species were collected and information on their ethnomedicinal values which are traditionally used as medicines by local people have been documented. The source of information is based on interviews with local Vaidyas, Bhagats and local tribal people of the area.
