Vedic medicinal uses and ecological values in the coastal belt of Purba Medinipur, West Bengal, India


Bishnupada Jana, Amal Kumar Mondal
Abstract

The present study shows the medicinal implication of Vedic medicinal plants. About 26 medicinal plants which have been described in Atharvaveda have been documented. The Sanskrit name, scientific name and their medicinal values described in Veda have been documented. Modern research on these medical plants is also included in this article. Listed 26 plant species have not only medicinal value but also have ecological value and these plants have sand dune stabilizing capacity and cyclone preventing capacity. Due to anthropogenic activities i.e. fisheries for prawn culture, the fishing harbour and tourism biodiversity is losing continuously.
