Ethnobotanical and Ethnomedicinal surveys are important as they lead to possible drug discoveries. An ethnomedicinal survey was carried out in Bariya Forest Division to document medicinally important flora and related traditional knowledge. The data of local traditional uses were collected through personal and group interviews, and field visits with locals, and faith healers. The present study revealed 99 plant species belonging to 56 different families reported to be traditionally used by the ethnic groups receding in the peripheries of the forests of the Bariya Forest Division. The identification of the listed plants here is based on The Flora of Gujarat State. The collected and identified plants were deposited at the herbarium of the Department of Botany, Gujarat University, Ahmedabad.
