Abstract:

In order to document the medicinal plants and their applications, a field survey was undertaken at Mahadeva hill which is located 28 Km away from Vellore city and 60 k.m. from Islamiah College (Autonomous), Vaniyambadi, TamilNadu, India. An attempt has been made to identify the medicinal plants traditionally used by the people of the region and also to preserve the traditional heritage. Further this study highlights the risks of extensive human exploitation of biodiversity of the region. The survey was carried out during January to November 2019. A total of 88 herbaceous medicinal plants were documented and an inventory was prepared. All these 88 plants species are belonging to 40 families such as Acanthaceae, Aizoaceae, Alangiaceae, Alliaceae, Amaranthaceae, Annonaceae, Apocyanaceae, Aristolochiaceae, Asclepiadaceae, Asteraceae, Bombacaceae, Caesalpinacea, Capparaceae, Caricaceae, Cesalpinioideae, Cleomaceae, Cucurbitaceae, Euphorbiaceae, Fabaceae, Gentianaceae, Labiatae, Lamiaceae, Liliaceae, Lythraceae, Malvaceae, Meliaceae, Mimosaceae, Moraceae, Myrtaceae, Oleaceae, Oxalidaceae, Papilionoideae, Poaceae, Rhamnaceae, Rubiaceae, Rutaceae, Sapindaceae, Solanaceae, Verbanaceae and Vitaceae.This quantitative survey gives an account on the floral diversity and uses of medicinal plants.
