Résumé partiel
The present study has been conducted in the Himgir forest range of Sundargarh forest division in Orissa for four years. The forests of Himgir range are the Tropical Moist Dry Deciduous type and are great potential resources of medicinal flora. Sal (Shorea robusta Gaertn.) is the dominant species in this range. Field investigation was done following the Quadrate Method proposed by Cotton and Curtis (1956). The shape of a quadrate is usually square. A plot of 10 x 10 meters for each quadrate was marked. For trees and shrubs this method was done in order to study the spatial distribution in respect of their frequency, relative frequency, density, relative density and abundance and for herbs and climbers only frequency and relative frequency were analysed. Analysis of the medicinal plants indicates that they are distributed under various environmental conditions in the study region. Survey and enumeration of ethnomedicinal plants in Himgir Forest Range for four years in different tribal dominated and rural areas have revealed that out of the total 135 medicinal plant species recorded, 60 plant species have been listed for elaborate description and analysis in the present study because these 60 plants are commonly used by 9 dominant tribals and traditional medicine practitioners (Kabirajs & Vaidyas) of the Himgir Forest Range. The information was collected through questionnaire.
