Abstract: An ethnomedicinal survey was carried out to collect information on the uses of medicinal plants used by the tribal people of some selected areas of Birbhum district of West Bengal and Dumka district of Jharkhand. A total of 28 ethnomedicinal plants have been recorded here which are used in formulation of 10 different ethnomedicinal preparations for curing 10 types of diseases and ailments. Many of these ethnomedicinal preparations are new as they have not been recorded earlier in standard literature . Studied taxa have been considered under 28 species, 27 genera and 25 families of flowering plants. Finally, the investigated plant species have been enumerated according to the formulation prescribed by the medicine men, along with botanical names, families, local or tribal names, parts used and mode of administration.
