Some Traditional plants used by the Ahoms in health management and medicine in upper Assam, India

Various identified and unidentified plant species are used by different communities in the state for the treatment of a number of diseases. However, the ethnomedicinal practices of the Ahom community of the state are hardly known. Therefore, an attempt was made to study the ethnomedicinal practices of these communities. The Ahoms are one of the major Mongoloid population groups in Assam. In this paper, I have tried to describe the vegetables, how they are used in their daily life and how they cure diseases.
