Gour V.V. Sagar. Over 100 scientists have participated in this seminar.
The present volume covered a much wider area i.e., of medicinal plants and Indigenous Knowledge of tribals based on in day to day working of life, as well as on medicinal utility of plants.
The present book contains articles presented by eminent scientists of the country on various aspects of related subject. Scholars and students of Botany, Ethnobotany Agriculture, Forestry, Environment, Conservation will find this book very useful and informative.
The “Conservation on Biological Diversity” (CBD) at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and “Biodiversity Bill of Indian Parliament propose to safeguard the over exploration of natural resource and protect the rights of Indigenous People and also protect our traditional knowledge.
This national seminar of as a first case of its kind in India and will attract the attention of all persons concerning the academic communities, policy makers and administrator to preserve & document the IK of tribals before it is lost for ever. We often talk regarding conservation of flora and fauna and suggest strategies for their preservation but we never thought on preservation of IK, which the tribal are possessing. I hope this book will be much useful in this direction.
