Abstract: From p. 2: "This case study discusses the self-initiated efforts of an almost uneducated Gond herbal practitioner for the preservation and conservation of the tiny medicinal herbs, shrubs and trees and the management of bio-diversity for maintaining the genetic resources of the locality. This study also takes a look at local attempts at extending voluntary services by treating complicated ailments among his community, create a network of other herbal practitioners in the region and preparing a second generation of tribal herbal practitioners."
