The study has documented 68 medicinal and aromatic plants (MAPs) of 59 genera belonging to 36 families, used by the local people of Merak, Sakteng and Joenkhar areas in Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary. The recorded medicinal plants comprised of trees (4 species), shrubs (10 species) and herbs (54 species). The different part (s) of the plants are used to treat various diseases/ailments like chronic gastritis, gynaecological diseases, rheumatism, diarrhoea, bilious fever and many other disorders. Local people have good knowledge in plant identification and their uses. Documentation of these species will preserve the traditional knowledge of plants and help in the conservation of the medicinal and aromatic plants.
