Abstract: An ethno-medicinal survey of plants in Tripura state revealed that some less known medicinal plants have been used by the indigenous tribes. The valid scientific name, family, local name(s), habit, dosages and traditional formulation of 33 species belonging to 32 genera and 25 families are enumerated in the paper. The ethnic people of Tripuri and Reang communities of Tripura are involved in using these medicinal plants. Traditional beliefs, concepts, knowledge and practices among them for preventing, lessening or curing disease are accessible till now. Still they depend upon such traditional healthcare and the need for immediate documentation of such knowledge and conservation of these valuable plants are emphasized to secure it for our future generation.
