Abstract: During ethnobotanical exploration of Chhattisgarh, a number of plants have been collected which are used by the local tribals for the treatment of various ailments. The paper deals with certain plants of the family Fabaceae, which are ethnomedicinally exploited by local tribals of Chhattisgarh, viz., Abrus precatorius for skin disease and poor eye-sight, Clitoria ternatea as diuretic Crotalaria medicaginea in case of white discharge, Desmodium gangeticum for goitre, Flemingia macrophylla for arthritis and fever, Ougeinia dalbergioides for dysentery, Pueraria tuberosa for chest pain and weakness, Sesbania sesban for abortion and as antifertility agent. A number of ethnomedicinally important plants with their vernacular names and mode of administration are presented.
