Abstract:

The present study was to document ethno medicinal plants used against health disorders and diseases in Marwar region of Rajasthan, India and to select potential medicinal plants for further in vitro and in vivo investigation. An ethno medicinal plant exploration was carried out in Marwar region of Rajasthan in the year 2017-18. Data on ethno medicinal plants ethnographic profile of the respondents was documented using semi structured questionnaires. The present study revealed utilization of 70 medicinal plants for the treatment of different health disorders and diseases in studied region. Apiaceae and Fabaceae was the most dominant family reported to be used for the treatment of different health disorders (5 plants of each). Leaves and seed were the most preferred part used in herbal formulation followed by roots, whole plants and fruits. Growth form indicated that herbs (54%) were dominating followed by shrubs (22%), trees (20%) and climbers (4%). Highest degree of informant consensus was recorded for cold and cough (0.97), cuts, boils and wound (0.94), digestive and gastrointestinal disorder (0.92), dental and gum problem (0.90) and ophthalmic complaint (0.86). Ziziphus nummularia ranked first score highest FL value (82%) followed by Trachyspermum ammi (75%) ranked second, Pedalium murex (72%) ranked third, Acacia nilotica (64%) and Zingiber officinale (63%) ranked fifth. Locals of the region are heavily dependent on these medicinal plants therefore causing serious threats to the abundance of these plants. There is a dire need to protect these medicinal plants before their extinction. Plants with high Fic and FL values should be subjected for further phytochemical and pharmacological investigation for scientific validation.
