Lonar crater is the unique ecosystem with its own feature. It is the crater formed by the meteorite impact on the earth about fifty two thousand years ago. The crater possesses the smallest forest sanctuary with great biological diversity. It is rich in its biodiversity. This may be one of the important resources for various ethnomedicines. In Lonar crater various types of medicinal plants are found. In present study plants belonging to leguminales are studied. This plant possesses various types of pharmacological drugs. This can be used as the medicine in various ayurvedic preparations. These drugs can be extracted from the various plant parts. Thus the given study highlights the ethnobotanical diversity of leguminales from Lonar Crater. The paper highlights the ethnobotanical diversity of leguminales from Lonar Crater.
