Database on reference specimens for medicinal plants of the Araceae family, conserved at the CNARP herbarium

Latest version published by Madagascar Biodiversity Information Facility (MadBIF) on May 17, 2018 Madagascar Biodiversity Information Facility (MadBIF)

This database was extracted from the four collections of reference specimens on medicinal plants deposited at the CNARP herbarium: http://ipt.madbif.mg/resource?r=medicinal_plants_orstom_cnarp&v=1.0, http://ipt.madbif.mg/resource?r=medecinal_plants_cnarp&v=1.0, http://ipt.madbif.mg/resource?r=medecinal_plants_nci_cnarp&v=1.0 and http://ipt.madbif.mg/resource?r=medecinal_plants_icbg_cnarp&v=1.1

This collection concerns mainly plants, within the Araceae family, with medicinal properties or used in traditional medicine, but it does not exclude other sympatric species.

Project Data

Invasive alien species and endangered species were the two firsts of the 8 priority areas defined by the ACM in its WP 2015-2016. In this regard, the consortium retained 8 families of each category for the project. The Araceae family was chosen by the consortium as one of the priority family of invasive species.
