Résumé

Ethnomedicinal information was collected from the Betsimisaraka—the inhabitants of the Maroantsetra Region in the northeastern part of Madagascar—during a recent expedition to the region. In spite of the inhabitants’ rich knowledge of and willingness to discuss medicinal uses of plants, from both disturbed areas and undisturbed primary rainforests, it was found that much ethnomedicinal information has not been documented. There is an urgent need to further develop and document this ethnomedicinal information and also to protect the medicinal plants, some of which could be lost as a result of deforestation and invasion by foreign weed species.
