Abstract: Since ancient times, plants are being used as medicines, foods, agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals by large number of tribal, rural and urban people. India has more than 300 tribal communities. In Maharashtra, there are 20 major tribes. Though, there has been good research work on tribals of India including Maharashtra, some of the tribes, and tribal region of Maharashtra have not received proper attention of researchers.
