|Author(s)||Dr. Holy Archaha Kachhap|
|Abstract||Agriculture is the major subsistence occupation of the tribal population in Jharkhand. Their socio-economic activities are mostly related to the environment. Therefore tribal people are very much concerned about their surroundings. Tribal people consider nature as a goddess. They are very protective of forest land. Therefore 29.45 percent of the total geographical area of Jharkhand is covered by forest land. These tribes are very much dependent on the forest for their day-to-day needs, including food, shelter, tools, medicine, and in some cases even clothes. Some medicinal plants and trees are sisham, amaltas, lajvanti, gular, bakain, mahua, neem, Sharifa, and sindur. These species are very useful in curing different diseases and also have economic value. Tribal people are habituated to more and more plantations in their surroundings. Therefore tribal people are socially and economically involved with nature and the environment. Thus, they are very much concerned about environmental conditions.|
