Abstract: A survey on the utilization of medicinal plants used by Thai people at Khao Kho District, Petchabun Province was carried out by interviewing herbalists followed by collecting plant specimens and identifying the specimens. In addition, the plant specimens were compared with the authentic specimens at two herbaria: the Bangkok Herbarium, Botany Section, Botany and Weed Science Division, Department of Agriculture, Ministry of Agriculture, and the Forest Herbarium, Royal Forest Department, Ministry of Agriculture. Fifty-nine kinds of medicinal plants belonging to 32 families are reported, from which 12 kinds are newly recorded as medicinal plants. They were found belonging to 47 dicots, eight monocots, one gymnosperm, two ferns and one lichen. Forty-one kinds are used in combination with other medicinal plants whereas the other 17 kinds are used as a single remedy.
