Present study aimed to compare the distribution pattern and trends of medicinal plants. Present work was focused on the study of relationship of local people with indigenous plants and the documentation of indigenous their knowledge on how local plant resources are utilized to cure different diseases. The field work was carried out in two distinct sites for studying both distribution pattern and folk medicinal uses of plants. A total of ten quadrates in Mayali site were used to calculate phytosociological characteristics (Frequency, density, abundance and important value index). During the present investigation fifteen ethnomedicinal plants species families were document from Mayali site situated at Jashpur district. Cynodon dactylon, Bambusa vulgaris, Alkana tinctoria, Senna tora and Crnum latifoliumi exhibited maximum value of RF, RD, RM and IVI at Mayali site. The outcome of present research work was the documented plant diversity of at Mayali site that could generate further research activities and will help the upcoming generations to conserve ethno-medicinal knowledge of medicinal herbs for the benefit to society and ecosystem.
