Since Bodos are living around the forest and nature; they have some traditional believes and knowledge in plants and forests. Perhaps the availability and richness of forest and plants of the areas where they inhabit may be the important reasons how they get influence with plants and forests in their socio-cultural and religious life. The Scientific documentation of the plant specieswhich are used in socio-cultural and religious activities will definitely give encouragement to the community tribal people. The preservation of their indigenous knowledge with plant and forest may be important tools for conservation of these plant species.
