Abstract: Plants are natural industries, which provide high quality food and raw material for pharmaceutical, cosmetic and perfumery industries without causing environmental degradation. Medicinal plants as a group comprise approximately 8000 species and account for around 50% of all the higher flowering plant species of India. India possesses almost 8% of the estimated biodiversity of the world with around 0.126% million species. In India, Madhya Pradesh & Chattisgarh are known to harbour a rich wealth of medicinal plants. Studies have shown that these two states are pool of dozens of pharmaceutically important plants. Medicinal activity of few such plants has already been reported but a good number of plants still used by local folklore are yet to be explored. A detailed survey was carried out by the authors to collect information on both reported and unreported medicinal plants of this region. The present article represents statistical data of the medicinal plants of this region.
