The applications of traditional medicine and medicinal plants have attracted many professionals and scientists around the world. Employment of drugs of plant origin in primary health care not only in the developing countries, but also in the developed countries, where application of chemical drugs is common, has increased.
Today, traditional medicine and ethnobotany are two attractive topics in many countries. Ethnobotanical studies document a number of useful plants, and also some medicinal plants, toxic plants, and plants that are used in food. The aim of ethnopharmacology is to improve the preparation method of some products that are used by people. However, to achieve this goal, some information about active compounds of these plants, the role of these compounds in development of biological effects of the plant (e.g., antagonistic or synergistic effects), and the toxic effects of the plants should be available.
Since there are various geographic conditions in Iran, there are different ecosystems and vegetation in the country. Considering the growing need of modern world to novel drugs of plant origin and industrialization of this field, it is necessary to identify and develop appropriate plans for optimized employment of plant resources of our country. In this study, we have collected and identified the plants in some parts of Jandagh town. To this end, during 2010 and 2011, the plants of this region were collected and systematically identified. Furthermore, traditional applications of the collected plants were recorded through interviewing the native people of the region. The results indicated that most plants of the region are valuable medicinal plants. Therefore, it seems that plants ofthe region deserves further studies.
