Abstract: Folklore medicinal uses and biological activities of some plant species growing wild in Assam of North-East India were studied based on the review of literature reports. An account of 65 plant species indicating positive correlation between their folklore claims and biological activities were reported in this communication. For each plant species described botanical name, local name(s), parts used and folklore claims, and biological activities were given. The present study not only revealed the authenticity of traditional knowledge of the ethnic people of Assam on utilitarian aspects of these plant species but also indicated the possibility of utilizing them for greater economic use.
