Therefore, Valsad taluka has selected for the present study with the aims and objectives to make the people aware about the utility of their surrounding plants. During my M.Sc., I observed a good number of plants grown on this region, which I was not well aware of their real identity. The Taluka consist about 99 revenue villages. Therefore, I selected Valsad taluka for my present study with a view to having more exposure in my research
