Abstract

A REPORT ON SOME ETHNOMEDICINAL PLANTS OF MUNSHIGANJ DISTRICT, BANGLADESH

Jannatul Ferdous Mukta and Mohammed Rahmatullah*

ABSTRACT

Background. Plants have throughout history proved to be excellent sources for discovery of drugs and treatment of ailments. Knowledge of the traditional therapeutic uses of plants is usually obtained through documentation of therapeutic practices of traditional medicinal practitioners. The objective of this study was to document the medicinal plants used by a folk medicinal practitioner (FMP) of Munshiganj district, Bangladesh. Methods. Interview of the FMP was carried out with the help of a semi-structured questionnaire and the guided field-walk method. Results. The FMP used a total of 9 plants distributed into 9 families in his formulations. Conclusion. A perusal of available ethnomedicinal literature on the plants showed that the phytotherapeutic uses of the present FMP are for the most part previously unreported.

Keywords: Folk medicinal practitioner, medicinal plants, Munshiganj, Bangladesh.
