ABSTRACT

Background. Medicinal plants form a primary means for treatment of various diseases in many parts of the world. Ethnomedicinal consensus on the use of a particular species denotes a high probability of obtaining useful drug(s) from the species, while a variety of uses may point to hitherto scientifically undiscovered medicinal properties of the plant. The objective of this study was to make a comparative analysis of reported ethnomedicinal uses of plants used by a folk medicinal practitioner (Kaviraj) of Meherpur district, Bangladesh. Methods. Interviews of the Kaviraj were carried out with the help of a semi-structured questionnaire and the guided field-walk method. Results. The Kaviraj used 10 plants distributed into 9 families in his formulations. Available reports on ethnomedicinal uses points to a consensus of use on some plants. Conclusion. The study suggests that the medicinal plants used by the Kaviraj of Meherpur district have good probability of new drug discoveries.

Keywords: Folk medicine, Kaviraj, Meherpur, Bangladesh, ethnomedicinal consensus.
