Abstract

In Ayurveda Samhita`s and Nighantu`s, knowledge about so many herbs are documented in a very systematic and scientific manner. For proper identification of a particular plant, so many synonyms are given which indicate all the silent features of plants. This multinomial nomenclature methodology shows the intellectual power of our ancestors as each name describes a particular feature of plant. In Dravyaguna Vigyan there is a major importance of identification of plants because until and unless we are unable to identify plant properly, further studies cannot be carried out. So with the help of synonyms assigned to plants based on their morphological characters, identification can be done at first step.
