Abstract: Treatment of diseases with medicinal plants in different ethnic groups of Assam is widespread, because of effectiveness, easy availability, lack of modern healthcare alternatives, cultural preferences and century old association with the plants. The study performed in Dibrugarh district of Upper Assam included interview with 27 traditional practitioners from three different communities, i.e. Deori (8), Muttak (15) and Nepalee (4). The results reveal use of 38 plant species represented by 36 genera and 29 families for the treatment of various gastrointestinal diseases.
