ABSTRACT

Modern housing in the suburban part of city of Mumbai has resulted in clearing of lot of vegetation. The area adjacent to Sanjay
Gandhi National Park Borivili has many housing societies with modern amenities and facilities. Even formal gardens, parks, lawns
& swimming pools etc. are being laid out by the builders. To add to property value many of the trees and plants are being
maintained by the societies. Some of the plants still do exist in the waste areas which grow on their own and are considered as
weeds. Although they are being considered as useless plants yet they are of medicinal importance. Some of these plants of
medicinal importance which are common plants in these areas include Achyranthes aspera, Calotropis gigantea, Catharanthus
roseus, Cynodon dactylon, Cyperus rotundus, Datura metel, Euphorbia hirta, Lantana camera, Ricinus communis, Scoparia
dulcis etc.

Key Words: -Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Housing Societies, Tribal, Medicinal plants.
