Abstract: This is a report on the ethnobotanical study that was carried out on traditional use of wild plants among the Nyindu, slash-and-burn agriculturalists living in the eastern part of the former Zaire. Data on 412 plants including scientific names, vernacular names, observations, uses, and name etymology were obtained and listed in the Appendices. This preliminary report includes almost full inventory of plant utilization in a village life of the Nyindu and will contribute to a further comparative ethnobotanical study on man-plant relationships in tropical Africa.
