"The interdisciplines of ethnobotany links with cultural anthropology, linguistics, ethnography, economics, botany, ecology, nutrition, veterinary, chemistry, bio-chemistry, agroforestry, biodiversity, conservation, pharmacology and medicine. The traditional ethnobotany investigates the utility and dependency of the ethnic human races upon plants for botanical medicine, food, fibre, shelter, crafts, ornamentals, forage, myths and rituals and income generation; and the modern trend leads to the discovery of new drugs and new food from plant derivatives."The present volume brings out documentation of the first-hand information of such diverse uses of plants and the total dependency of the rural poor population upon them, and the holistic usefulness of the wild and wild-related varieties of plant resources to the people in Mizoram, with an aim to focus primarily on the local health traditions based on the Indigenous Knowledge Systems (IKS). The presentation narrowed down and categorized the threatened species of the ethno-medicinal plants, and remarkably, the milestone record of sixty two ethno-medicinal plants reported for the first time from Mizoram as an authentic evidence of the author's original Ph.D. work during 1995-1998."
