Abstract: In the present global milieu, documentation of the country’s traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) particularly those associated with bioresources has assumed high priority. The paper records the use and ethnomedicinal values of 37 plant species belonging to 29 families, utilised by Khamptis of Arunachal Pradesh. For each plant species, the information lists plant name, crude drug preparation, and the method of use. Such documentation not only provides opportunities, but also holds potential for developing products for the pharmaceutical sector, safeguard from biopiracy and above all sustainable use. This will also act as a tool to the economic upliftment of the upland tribal communities by harnessing some of the potential and high value species.
