Abstract: Traditional herbal drugs have recently been receiving greater importance all over the world, especially in the healthcare programme. Consequently, traditional information is being documented before it is lost forever. An ethno-medico-botanical field survey was conducted during December 2004 to January 2006 to collect, and document information from unexplored parts of Karnataka. The paper deals with the traditional herbal drugs used to treat various ailments by local castes and communities residing in certain selected villages of Bhadravathi taluk. Folk herbal healers in the study villages of Bhadravathi taluk have a fairly good knowledge about the medicinal values of locally available plants. A total of 40 plant species belonging to 26 families were used to treat 25 human diseases and disorders. The information about plant species, local name, parts used, mode of drug preparation, dosage and duration was also documented.
