Abstract: An ethnomedicinal survey was carried out to identify the wild plants used by the Bhilla, Thakar, Warli and Kokna tribes of Northwestern region of Maharashtra for the treatment of various ailments. During field visits to tribal settlements, medicine men, Mukhia or Mhorkya, Vaidus, etc. were contacted, interviewed and information on 33 plant species used by these tribes for the treatment of common gastrointestinal disorders was collected. The survey revealed that the plant parts of Aloe barbadensis, Ceropegia hirsuta, Cicer arietinum and Anisochilus carnosus are used for stomachache; Citrus aurantiifolia is used for diarrhoea and dysentery and Zingiber officinale rhizome is used for acidity and ulcer.
