Ethnobotanical data were collected between September and December, on six field trips to investigate medicinal knowledge and application of medicinal plants in Endrta Wereda (the lowest administrative unit in Ethiopia), South-eastern Tigray, Northern Ethiopia. Semi-structured interviews, observation and guided field walks with informants were employed to obtain ethnobotanical data.   Ethiopia is endowed with a large variety of plant and animal species. The ecological regions of Ethiopia are characterized by a great biodiversity of birds and wild animals supported by numerous species of plants. The flora of Ethiopia consists of many types of vegetation, flowers, and plants. The cactus plants grow in the highland areas.

  With key herbs and their uses as natural remedies for nearly common ailments, Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine is the definitive home reference to healing with the world's oldest form of medicine. From ginger to lavender and thyme to dandelion, learn about the chemistry of plants and how and why they work as medicines within the s: K.   Ethiopia is endowed with abundant medicinal plant resources and traditional medicinal practices. However, available research evidence on indigenous anti-malarial plants is highly fragmented in the country.
