ISHS Acta Horticulturae 333: WOCMAP I - Medicinal and Aromatic Plants Conference: part 1 of 4

THE STUDY OF MEDICINAL PLANTS IN MAZANDARAN (NORTHERN IRAN)

Authors:   M. Shokri, N. Safaian
Abstract:
The purpose of this project is to study the evaluation and availability of natural resources for:
  • Identification of plants
  • Prevention of eradication of rare plant species
  • Introduction of standard species
  • Collection for herbarium

The first stage of this work includes collecting the native and non-native plants, and taxonomic studies on the dried samples. The species studied were investigated based on existing references.

In the present work, based on a research about the traditional pharmacopoeia of the region, some native species in the region had medicinal uses, which have not yet been mentioned in the references.

By preliminary phenological studying of some medicinal plants in the region, a criterion for the preparation of a harvesting calendar has been developed.

Medicinal species like: Polygonatum polyanthemum, Buxus hyrcanus, Humulus lupulus, ……………….. are in danger of disappearance due to destruction and conversion of their habitats, and it is essential to protect them.
