Shila Singh

In the traditional health care practices medicinal plants play great role. Impotence of medicinal plants provides clues to new areas of research and biodiversity conservation. However, information on the uses of plants for medicines and other purposes by the tribal’ s of the parsa district is lacking among the people of the district and other areas. Keeping this view in mind present study was carried out. The information presented in this paper was gathered by field visit, participatory observation, group discussion and interviews with questionnaires in the year 2013 from March ton November after frequent field visit in the forest and adjoining villages. A total of 18 ethno-medicinal climber species belonging to 12 families and 17 genera are documented in this study. The plants used for different purpose are listed with scientific name, common name, family; ethno-botanical importance and parts used. Mode of use of plant parts has been also mentioned. Out of the total studied plants 50% plants are used only for medicinal purpose, 40% are used for both medicine and other purpose and rest 10% are used for making soap and detergent
