Abstract—The traditional system of health care has been systematically used for over two thousand years to treat illnesses. The ethnic people of South West Bengal (mainly Santal) depend on plants and their parts, to cure their health problems. Approximately 150 species of medicinal plants are in common use, and of these 45 are heavily used in traditional healthcare systems. In present scenario, it was found that among these 45 species, 10 species are becoming increasingly rare and under threat of extinction. But these ethno medicinally important plants were found rare or infrequent in the rural forest areas of South West Bengal because of extensive use and various anthropogenic activities. To avoid biodiversity extinction some measures would be taken, like, cultivation of rare medicinal plants, provision of training and extension services to farmers engaged in cultivation of medicinal plants, establishment of herbal gardens in forest areas and creation of seed bank.
