Preservation of Indigenous Knowledge Regarding Important and Endangered Medicinal Plants in Rajshahi District of Bangladesh

N.A. Siddique , Jaime A. Teixeira da Silva and M.A. Bari

Abstract:
Folk medicines are complemented with other systems of traditional medicines. An account of about 200 hundred plants used in medicine among certain herbal doctors of Bangladesh is given; details of local name, scientific name, method of application or administration and dosage are given. These records include several uses which do not seem to be known or recorded in literature. It is discussed that indigenous knowledge assists in the wider application and acceptance of traditional medicine. This study makes it amply clear that the wild medicinal plants in Bangladesh folk life are used to meet all kinds of requirements. Our grandfathers and grandmothers are the carrier of indigenous knowledge regarding medicinal plants but today we are not conserving this knowledge due to decrease indigenous people. So it is now important to preserve this indigenous knowledge.
