It lies between 93.5 to 94.70 N longitude and 25.5 to 27.5 E latitude. The state as a whole is a hilly tract and occupying an area of 16,527 sq. km. The state consists of seven districts and 16 tribes and their sub-tribes.The state is rich in biodiversity as a source of medicinal plants as well as, the traditional method of healing practices and health management. The present paper deals with the details of studies on conservation of traditional healing practices of tribal people of Nagaland. Traditional practices in Nagaland are practiced by some of the herbalists who use the practice of treatment through single drug or in compound formulation. Due to modernization of the society these practices are gradually getting reduced which needs to be conserved through promoting of the traditional healers by taking them in practice through scientific organizations after passing through various scientific validation practices.

Description : 

Herbal medicine is widely practiced from ancient period throughout the world. These medicines are safe and environment friendly. According to WHO about 80% of  the world’s population relies on traditional medicine for their primary health care. India,  being one of the world’s 12 mega biodiversity countries, enjoys export of herbal raw  material worth of U.S. $100-114 million per year approximately. Currently the  Government of India, realizing the value of the country’s vast range of medicinal  plants, has embarked on a mission of documenting the traditional knowledge about  medicinal plants and herbs. This investigation, in a small way, takes up the enumeration of plants with medicinal value, which are used by the Valaiyans, an ethnic group,  residing in and around Piranmalai Hills, Tamilnadu, South India. This report elucidates  a rich and unique profile of phytodiversity of the area surveyed, with 63 species of medicinal plants belonging to 59 genera and 38 families.

Deteriorating water quality of rivers is of major concern in India; this is especially true for rivers being used as drinking water sources. One such river considered in this study is the Patalganga, which is located about 60 km from Mumbai and is a significant source of water supply for Panvel, Alibaug and Rasayani. This paper aims to determine the polluting sources responsible for the poor water quality of the Patalganga River and to suggest a scientifically sound water quality management plan to improve the same. A total of 14 water samples from different point sources of pollution were collected and tested for physico-chemical parameters (pH, temperature, DO, BOD, COD, TSS, TDS, EC, PO4 3- , NO3-N and NH3-N), metals (As, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb and Zn) and microbiological parameter using World Health Organization (WHO) and the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) standards. Based on, the water quality at most of the sampling stations was found to be unsuitable for drinking. Hierarchical cluster analysis (HCA) classified the 14 sampling stations into three clusters. The HCA identified a uniform source of parameters (physico-chemical and nutrients) for all the sampling stations, excluding two sampling stations (7 and 12) that exhibited anomalous concentrations. Furthermore, as per the WQI, the water quality status of Patalganga River fell under good category, except at the sampling station 7 and 12 where the water quality index were bad (49) and medium (51) category, respectively, and were totally unfit for drinking purpose. Water quality management plan specific to the individual sites has been delineated in the paper.
