Abstract:  In the study, 57 medicinal plant species belonging to 45 genera and 36 families have been recorded. Out of these, the most important species found were Aesculus punduana, Boerhavia diffusa, Dillenia pentagyna, Holarrhena antidysenterica, Justicia adhatoda, Oroxylum indicum, Rauvolfia densiflora, Rauvolfia serpentina, Terminalia arjuna, Terminalia belerica and Terminalia chebula. The natural distribution of these medicinal plant species in 3 different ranges of Manas National Park were marked with the help of GPS. The study revealed that the documented medicinal plants have potential curative properties with immense market value. Moreover, the plants can be grown commercially by the villagers of the fringes area of Manas National Park through improved agro-technique for the betterment of livelihood.
