Madhya Pradesh has been very rich in biodiversity since times immemorial. Achanakmar-Amarkantak Biosphere Reserve has a long tradition, respect, care and great concern for biodiversity and its conservation. As the tribal life is based on forest, hence these tribal people practice judicious use of the plant resources and conserve many plant species. The tribal of Achanakmar-Amarkantak Biosphere Reserve conserve 88 plant species. The principle behind this conservational atitude is based on their magico-religious faith, beliefs and their taboos and totems. Conclusively, as the tribal life is forests based hence, the tribal practice judicious use of the plant resources and conserve many plant species.
