PROJECT 7- Ethno botanical Wisdom of Mountain Communities


Plants play an intimate role in human culture. They have an impact on language, art and literature; performing arts and modem mass media; politics and world events. Mountain people living in remote and inaccessible areas rely on the natural resources for their sustenance and their dependence of forest resources, especially the plant resources is more as compare to any other resources. This helps them in developing their wisdom of using the plants for various purposes. The time-honored wisdom of communities is reflected in their day today life, when they make use of plants for managing their livestock, own health and other purposes. In this project an attempt has been made to document the ethno-veterinary wisdom of mountain people, in addition to knowledge of folk herbalists and traditional birth attendants in the management of health problems and gynecological disorders.
