Abstract: The ethnobotanical surveys were conducted during June 1997 to 2004 in Jalgaon district of Maharashtra. The tribes such as Bhil, Pawara, Tadvi and Vanjara inhabit in the district, apart from other rural people.  Information on 37 angiospermic species belonging to 31 genera of 22 families was gathered on ethnomedicinal uses of barks.  This paper reports their botanical identity, family, local names, parts used, preparations and doses, if any. It was observed that tribal people use barks of various trees in the form of decoction, infusion, extract, paste, poultice, powder, etc. Various human diseases treated were verified from the local tribal medicine men, elder ladies, head of hamlets and other rural informants. Further research on scientific line is, however, desirable to improvise their authenticity which would lead to discovery of new molecules and potential sources of drugs.
