The paper deals with ethnomedicinal uses of 289 plant species belonging to 233 genera under 116 families, which include 247 species of angiosperms (198 genera of 87 families), 6 species of gymnosperms (4 genera of 4 families), 35 species of pteridophytes (30 genera of 24 families) and a solitary species of alga used by the aborigines in Andaman & Nicobar Islands. The uses of different plant species by the aborigines are rendered in a tabular form, where plants have been arranged alphabetically with their botanical names, local names, followed by family, habit of plant, plant parts used, names of diseases and tribes.
