INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF PHARMACY & LIFE SCIENCES Flora of Nandan Kanan Sanctuary: medicinal plants with their role in health care Sanjeet Kumar* and Dhanalaxmi Dash Department of Life Science, Regional Institute of Education (NCERT) Bhubaneswar, (Odisha) - India
Abstract The present study reflects the major medicinal flora of Nandan Kanan Sanctuary, a small Protected Area along the Kanjia Lake, in the district of Cuttack, Odisha, India. The survey reveals that there were 61 plant species belonging to 40 different families highlighted the floral wealth of the sanctuary.The dominant floristic components were Aerva lanata, Biophytum sensitivum, Christella dentate, Heliotropium indicum, Hyptis suaveolens, Terminalia arjuna, Terminalia bellirica, Pongamia pinnata, Cassia fistula, Polygonum barbatum, Lygodium flexuosum, Mimosa pudica, Leonotis nepetifolia etc. The details of these plants in terms of local name, family, plant part(s) used, chemicals present and their use in health care such as malnutrition, Communicable Diseases, metabolic disorder and other miscellaneous effects has been listed. The implications of this study in terms of sustainable use by the local community, conservation, and education have been discussed. Key-Words: Medicinal plant, Health care, Conservation, Sustainable use, environmental education
Introduction Biodiversity provides humankind enormous direct economic benefits, an array of indirect essential services through protected areas and plays a prominent role in modulating ecosystem functions and stability1 The forests has been the source of invaluable medicinal plants since the time man realized the importance of preventive and curative properties of plants and started using those in human health care. Living close to nature, traditional societies have acquired unique knowledge about the use of wild flora and fauna, most of which are unknown to the people who live away from such natural ecosystem such as forests. The old traditional Indian system of medicines is one of the most ancient medicinal practices known to the word derives maximum formulations from plants and plant extracts that exist in the forests. The value and importance of this tradition knowledge is now being increasingly acknowledged all over the world. As such the pharmaceutical industries are trying to investigate and confirm the efficacy of many medicines and toxins used by traditional communities. Thus realizing the potentiality of wild species in health care, the inventory of plants occurring in any given area has been realized and often felt necessary2. * Corresponding Author E.mail: [email protected]
Even the protected areas do play a vital role in the sustainable use of biodiversity besides conservation. Under this back ground, the present study has been conceptualized to study the medicinal flora of a small protected area, the Nandan Kanan Sanctuary of Odisha. The specific objectives of the study are: i) to find out the major medicinal flora of the sanctuary and ii) to know the plant parts , chemical constituents and their uses in traditional healthcare. Methodology Study Site The Nandan Kanan Sanctuary, an unique, deciduous forest, covering about 437 ha with latitude of 20° 24' 25" N and longitude of 85° 49' 30" E is situated in Cuttack district of Odisha, India, 40 meters above MSL. Amidst the lush green Chandka forests and along the bank of Kanjia Lake stands Nandan Kanan, a beautiful park that got its name from "Nandan Van" meaning the "Garden of the God". It was established in the year 1960. The Botanical Garden established in the year 1963 spreading over 173 acres, is situated in the sylvan setting of the moist deciduous forest of the sprawling green Nandan Kanan Sanctuary standing between two wetlands (Plate-1). In the year 1979, the park together with the lake and the Botanical Garden were declared as a sanctuary3.Though Nandan Kanan is famous for White Tiger & Lion Safari, different

Explorer Research Article CODEN (USA): IJPLCP species of mammals, birds, reptiles and other faunas also indicate its richness in faunal diversity that attracts large number of tourists and naturalists from India and abroad. Collection of Information The Field Studies were carried out during the years 2009 to 2011 in different seasons to collect major medicinal flora. The plant samples were collected from Nandan Kanan Sanctuary (Botanical garden and Zoological Park) and from the banks of the Kanjia Lake. The plants were identified by the authors following the flora books4,5. The medicinal uses of plants identified were ascertained through the survey of literature and interaction with local inhabitants, detail of which has been reflected in Tables 1-4. The information pertaining to bioactive compounds / active principles present in the plant parts were found out through literature survey, details of which have been listed. In Tables 1-4. For each plant species, its botanical name, local name(s), plant part(s), phytochemical(s) present along with medicinal uses have been described. Plate 1 : Geographical location of Nandan Kanan Sanctuary Results and Discussion Identification of plant species / floral resources has always been realized for their sustainable use besides conservation. In the present study, 61 plant species belonging to 40 different families having some medicinal value(s) were identified (Table 1- 4). For each plant species, its botanical name, local name(s), plant part(s) in use, phytochemical(s) present along with medicinal value has been described. Among the plant species, trees were the dominant (34 %) followed by herbs (30 %) and climbers (23 %). Shrubs represented the lowest number of species (Fig: 1). Fabaceae was the dominant family followed by Apocyanaceae (Fig: 2) as far as the number of plant
[Kumar & Dash, 3(4): April, 2012] ISSN: 0976-7126 species are concerned. Some important medicinal plants such as Peperomia pellucida, Saraca asoca and Evolvulus alsinoids etc has been depicted in plate 2 and 3. Regarding the role of these plants in health care is concerned, 11 species quite useful for malnutrition have been recorded (Table-1) Fifteen plant species (Table-2.) are good against metabolic disorder such as gastrointestinal ailments, asthma, jaundice, diabetes etc.For example, fresh leaves of Gudmari (Gymnema sylvestre) are very effective for diabetes. Twenty four plant species were useful against Communicable diseases and microbial infections. (Table-3) and from these species, 5 were common to both Botanical garden (BG) and Nandan Kanan Zoological area (NZA) (Table-3). Twenty one plant species were useful against Non-Communicable diseases, 8 of these species were seen both in the Botanical Garden and Zoological Park. From the total plants species about 30 % have their leaves used against different diseases and infections. Leaf juice of Leonotis nepetifolia is used against Malaria. Leaves of Paederia foetida and Pergularia daemia are useful against diarrhea and lever disorder respectively. Leaf of Lygodium flexuosum is very effective against eczema. Roots and fruits from 15 % and 13 % of plant species are used for treatment of a variety of infections. Fruits powders of Guazuma ulmifolia (Fig -3) are good as antiseptic and for anticancer activity. Stems are of the least use. Active principle(s) and chemicals present in these plant part(s) include mostly alkaloids, phenolic compounds and glycosides, details of which have been presented in the Tables as well. Hyoscyamine present in Datura stramonium acts against dandruff. Scopotetin from Evolvulus alsinoids acts as a hair growth enhancer. Coumarin present in Ageratum conyzoides is active against fever and gastrointestinal aliments. As a whole; it seems the Nandan Kanan Sanctuary is a rich reservoir of plant species having high medicinal values. Besides conservation and sustainable economic use of this rich wealth by the local community, being a restricted area (sanctuary) there is a need to highlight the importance of these plants in health care as large number of tourists and nature lovers reaching several lakhs in a year do visit this sanctuary. Further these resources can be used6 by the students, practioners and researchers who are interested or engaged in the development, evaluation and use of herbal medicines. Moreover, sanctuary along with its plant and animal resources provides an ideal situation for environmental education, both in formal and non formal sectors. As floral wealth is vanishing at a rapid rate due to climate change, habitat loss, invasion of exotic species and other factors8, Sanctuaries and National parks provide

ideal sites for conservation9 as in the present case. It is interesting to note that recently, 72 herbaceous plant species7 having some medicinal values has been recorded from an urban environment, the campus of Regional Institute of Education, Bhubaneswar, Odisha.
