M. Idu and B.C. Ndukwu    

Abstract: Studies were carried out to inventorize, assess and document plant species and plant products used in ethnomedicine by the indigenous people of Ethiope Council Area, Delta State Nigeria. The studies revealed that a total of 53 species spread into 31 angiosperm families were used traditionally for various medicinal purposes. The studies further revealed that the indigenous people have developed various ways of identifying, harvesting, processing, storing and administering preparations from these plants. It was also observed that the cultivation and conservation of these plants is receiving increased attention by the people. The relevance of these observations in the efforts towards documenting indigenous knowledge and use of plants especially in the area of traditional health care system is discussed.
