About this book

This book is a photographic illustration of 203 medicinal species of Tripura which will not only help in identification of these species but also give a short idea about its medicinal uses and properties. It is designed primarily as an identification hand book for field officers and staff related to medicinal species. The 203 species includes not only some of the common medicinal species but also many rare and lesser known species found in Tripura.

The collection includes trees, shrubs and herbs which are of medicinal value. The plant species shown in the plates are all taken locally from various sites in Tripura in their natural habitats. The descriptions include the accurate scientific names, local Bengali names, families economic parts used and the common medicinal uses. The photographs are taken mostly from Trishna Wild Life Sanctuary and Ambassa Forest Division which are the most forested areas in Tripura. While identifying these species local names collected from local traditional healers came to be very useful.

This has been published with the hope that it will benefit all those associated with medicinal plants sector including scientists, researchers, forest officers, forest field staffs, students, traditional practitioners etc. This is the first attempt to photographically illustrate the medicinally important species of Tripura.
