Abstract: Andaman and Nicobar Islands represent a biological paradise for plant biodiversity. Medicinal plants of these islands also represent a typical Malayan flora. About 52 medicinal plants are found to be endemic. The present article encompasses a glimpse of a few important medicinal plants from Bay Islands along with the folk knowledge gleaned through recurrent survey. Enormous prospect in drug discovery is discernible from these species.
