This study represents the information about the treatment of asthma disease by the tribal of Achanakmar-Amarkantak Biosphere Reserve, India. A total of 9 plant species belonging to 9 genera and 8 families were recorded. The documented medicinal plants were labeled alphabetically with their local name, family name, plant part used and mode of administration. The documented of these medicinal plants against asthma reveals that these tribal people are still dependent on forest vegetation for their life care. Thus, this type of ethnomedicinal studies appears to be useful for the research on medicinal plants for the betterment of humankind.
