Abstract: The tribals and other rural communities residing in and around the forests in Bargarh district of Orissa mostly depend on the vegetation around them for the prevention as well as treatment of diseases and ailments. First hand information on ethnomedicinal uses of plants, their doses and mode of administration have been collected from the local traditional medicine practitioners as well as experienced old men and women. The paper deals with 35 ethnomedicinal plants used by the tribals for the treatment of diarrhoea and dysentery in Bargarh district. The tribals of the district, who were interviewed, include Sahanra, Binjhal, Gond and Kondh, besides some other minor communities.
