The Garos inhabit both in plains and hilly areas of the entire state of Assam including many areas of Kamrup District. The tribal communities including the Garos practice some primitive methods of traditional herbal treatment since time immemorial on the basis of knowledge acquired through their experiences generations after generations. It is worth mentioning that almost all the rural masses over the world believe and depend on herbal treatment practiced against a number of ailments. Many important modern drugs find their origin in traditional knowledge and use of ethno medicines. The present study is aimed at collection of the wild as well as the domesticated medicinal herbs and to record information on folk medicinal use of those herbs practiced locally by certain ethnic communities of Kamrup district, Assam. The data collected is based on carefully planned intensive survey and field study among the tribal people, mainly the ‘Garos’ dwelling in Kamrup district. The outcome of the findings will help to know about the ethnography and ethnobotany of these lesser known people of the study area and also bring light to immense wealth of different plant species used by the tribal community.
