India is one of the most religiously and ethnically diverse nations in the world with some of the most deeply religious societies and cultures. Different societies use plants according to their own beliefs, knowledge and experiences. Their knowledge about the use of the plants is usually not known to other societies and scientists. This book is a compilation of existing literature, field visits, and interactions with renowned personalities working in the similar field. We have attempted to cover ethnobotany syllabus for UG Forestry as per the recommendations of the Fifth Deans Committee Report, ICAR. This book may assist students preparing for the ASRB scientist, NET exam, ICFRE scientist exam and entrance exams for higher studies
