|Abstract:||Tribals are a distinct ethnic group who are usually confined to definite geographical areas, mainly in forests. Their life is woven around forest ecology and forest resources. Information on some very useful medicines known to the tribal communities through experience of ages is usually passed on from generation to generation. Ethnomedicinal surveys and fieldwork are important for systematic documentation. In the present attempt, the ethnomedicinal aspects of 45 species of plants used by the Paliyan and Pulayan tribes of lower Palni Hills (both northern and southern slopes) Tamil Nadu have been enumerated.|
