WHAT IS ETHNOBOTANY ?
Ethnobotany is the scientific study of the traditional knowledge and customs of a people concerning plants and their medical, religious, and other uses.
Ethnobotany is an important branch of Plant Science that deals with the study of the relationship between plants and people. It includes the traditional use of plants in different fields like medicine and agriculture. These plants are mostly used by the rural and tribal people for their livelihood. Unfortunately, this traditional knowledge is being lost because it is not being preserved. Since the time immemorial, people are using plants for food, medicine, shelter and agriculture.
