Abstract: The Betul district of Madhya Pradesh is appreciably inhabited by tribal population (ca 37%). Even today, the large segments of the tribal populations are dependent upon plant resources for treatment of various diseases and ailments. The paper deals with ethnomedicinal uses of 31 plants. Interestingly, most of the uses are first hand information, which may serve as resource material for development of new bio-actives and traditional preparations for cure or management of quite prevalent diseases like rheumatism, diabetes, cancer, skin diseases, etc.
