Abstract

The genus Adiantum L. (Pteridaceae–Vittarioideae) are medicinal ferns with around 200 species and distributed in temperate and tropical regions. Several species of the genus are used in traditional medicine in different parts of the world including the Chinese Herbal Medicine, United States Pharmacopoeia and Ayurveda System of Medicine and Homeopathy. In the present paper, an updated and comprehensive data on species diversity of Adiantum found in the seven (7) states of North East India will be discussed. Altogether, nine (9) species are recorded and this includes A. capillus–veneris L. with two (2) races, A. caudatum L., A. edgeworthii Hook., A. flabellulatum L., A. hispidulum Sw., A. incisum Forssk., A. peruvianum Klotzsch, A. philippense L. with three (3) subspecies and A. raddianum C. Presl. Brief morphological parameters, utilization including medicinal, economical and traditional aspects, along with their bioactive components are described. The paper also aims to provide for the first time an updated compilation of species information including correct nomenclature, synonyms, distribution and propagation.
