Knowledge of species diversity in tropical forests is well known, but the information on plant species’ food source potential in forest areas is still limited. The study was conducted in Nehas Liah Bing village and Wehea forest in August 2011 by interviews with local people and exploration in the forest. A total of 69 species of plants that have potential as a food source have been recorded in this research. It can be divided into three groups by the utilization: 51 species of fruits, 20 Species of vegetables and herbs, and groups producing starch/sago one species. Differences in local knowledge and experience and the condition of the landscape/habitat make differences in the diversity and number of species recorded.
