In this context, the ethnomedicinal plants and the traditional healthcare system prevalent amongst the aboriginal and the rural population of various societies contribute significant role. Considering the importance of herbal medicines, the paper pertains to the studies conducted in the rural areas of Shahjahanpur district, Uttar Pradesh.
