  Ethno-floristic studies of Ethiope Council area of Delta State, Nigeria was carried out with a view to take inventory of the flora and establish the varying ways plants are used by the aborigines. A total of 145 plant species distributed into 51 angiosperm families were recorded in the area. The studies indicate that the indigenous people have developed various ways and methods for the utilization of their plant resources. Efforts were made to track and document the customary knowledge and use of these plants. The information is intended to contribute to the current global efforts at safeguarding the loss of indigenous values and knowledge of biological resources.

  A survey of useful medicinal plants of Okomu Forest Reserve was undertaken and a total of 60 species of plants comprising of 50 leafy plants and 10 mushrooms were identified and recognized to be useful in native health care services by inhabitants of various communities in the South-South of Nigeria. Different southern Nigerian communities show not only individual characteristic dialect, culture and therapeutic practices involving the application of ethnomedicinal plants but also share common indigenous folk knowledge of what plant is used for the treatment of which ailment. Studies also show that 75% of men in most rural communities visited have inherited ethnobotanical knowledge from their fathers.
