Abstract: Darjeeling Himalayan region is characterized by a rich floral diversity. Since most of the hilly terrain is devoid of modern medical facilities, the people here are dependent on Traditional Medicine Systems for their health-care. During the course of the study, it was found that 37 species of plants belonging to 29 families are utilized as antipyretic agents in the different ethnic medicine practices prevalent in the region.
