Daraina, Ethnobotany, Madagascar, Northwest
This document illustrates the results of an ethnobotanical study carried out in Daraina commune (Northwestern Madagascar). A total number of 76 species, belonging to 72 genera and 39 families were mentioned for medicinal purposes in the rural commune of Daraina. FABACEAE Family predominated in number of species. Investigated plants were used to cure 60 different human diseases. Majorities of plants are used in gastrointestinal treatment and skin problems. This document provides new informations on medicinal plants from the North western region of Madagascar for ethnomedicine and can be used as a database and source of information for researchers who follow the ethnopharmacology approach.
