Ajay Banik, Varsha Paul
Based on extensive explorations and observations the diversity and performance studies of native oil yielding important plants were studied. Total of 15 oil yielding natively growing tree species were found which were used by the local tribalís. Oils obtained are either used for edible purposes or are found to be used as medicinal uses and cooking purposes. Based on above findings both the in situ and ex situ conservation of this oil yielding species are suggested which can be used as the alternative to the traditional oils.
