Abstract: The study was carried out on ethnomedical practices among Savara, a primitive tribal population of Srikakulam district, Andhra Pradesh. The paper provides data on 14 medicinal plants used by Savaras for curing various ailments along with their local names, method of preparation and mode of administration. The ethnomedical system among Savaras is quite diverse and the local knowledge is used mostly in primary healthcare. The vast traditional knowledge present among Savaras is mostly attributed to their cultural framework.
