Since ancient time, human beings have always been mostly depended on plant resources for their basic needs like food, medicine, fiber, fodder, shelter, etc. Formerly, they were directly dependent on plants, but due to modernization and with advancement of science and technology this dependence on plants as a direct source has been slightly reduced. All the same, the tribals and other aboriginal people, who have traditionally lived in the forests, continue to remain fully dependent on plants for their survival. Living close to the nature, the people residing in and nearby forests have assimilated unique knowledge about plant utilization for different purposes through the course of their centuries old experience. Therefore, ethno botanical studies of different tribal localities may lead to find new information on unexploited natural resources and new uses of existing resources as sources of medicine, food, etc. But at some places recent changes in tribal attitude due to habitat displacement, deforestation, modernization, etc. have led to decline and even disappearance of this rich knowledge system.
