|Abstract:||The coastal sand dune species of Orissa bears high cultural and ecological utility. Unfortunately, the dune vegetation has been extensively modified by human activity. Ethnobotanical survey was conducted among Savaras, Santals and other local communities, in sand dune vegetation of 6 coastal districts of Orissa during 2002-2004. A total of 55 plants have been collected and their popular uses are listed. Due to continuous loss of coastal vegetation, the associated indigenous knowledge with them is also gradually disappearing. So, it is imperative to protect and restore the dune vegetation, as an immediate priority.|
