Abstract

This study was conducted at Daligaw Kebela East Gojjam Zone to assess the medicinal plants and their conservational status. The data were collected through questionnaire, key informant interview, and observation. A total of 82 households were selected randomly from the total household. The key informants from the study area were selected purposively. The collected data were analyzed by using Microsoft excel and expressed by using descriptive statistical such as percentage, tables and bar graphs. In the study area a total of 38 medicinal plants were identified. About 55%, 2.63% and 42.11% were used for treatment of human aliments, Animals aliments and were used for both animal and human aliments respectively. Leaves (78%) followed by roots (40%) are the most frequently used plant parts for traditional medicine. However, the conservation status of some of those medicinal plants are nearly too endangered because of overexploitation, overgrazing, mainly due to over harvesting of their roots. Generally, the above-mentioned conservation challenges may be due to lack of awareness among local community and the concerned government and non-government bodies. So, appropriate intervention on awareness creation and parallel conservation works should be facilitated as far as the issue of medicinal plants sustainability is concern.
