An ethno-botanical survey of Vijayapur district comprising five tehsils was conducted during February 2014 to April 2016. The main purpose of this survey was to document the traditional use of medicinal plants for mental health in vijayapur district. 29 species belonging to 28 genera and 20 families were found to be used to treat some psychological disorder. The scientific name and family, local name, habit, along with part used and mode of their administration are provided.
The present study enumerated a total of 30 ethnoveterinary medicinal plant species used by Sugalis of Krishna district in Andhra Pradesh, India. This study gains prominence by the fact that such studies were not reported earlier from Krishna district. Nine Sugali villages (thands) constitute the present study area and information was elicited from tribal vaidyas (medical practitioners) and elderly people in the age group of 55-65 years. The 30 plant species belong to 19 different families and are used for the remedy of 10 livestock diseases. The findings of present study tally with the previous published reports in that the same plant species were used in the treatment of other veterinary ailments of livestock also. The medicinal use of these 30 plants species in conjecture with their similar utility reported earlier led to believe that the phytochemical screening of these plants would result in valuable active compounds of great veterinary significance.
