The ethnobotanical domain of the Swat Valley, Pakistan | Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine | Full Text

The ethnobotanical domain of the Swat Valley, Pakistan | Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine | Full Text | Ayahuasca News | Scoop.it
This study contributes to the current ethnomedicinal knowledge of the Swat Valley, Pakistan. District Swat possesses remarkable biodiversity owing to its varied topographical and climatic conditions, prompting a distinct human-plant association. Our hypothesis is that the presence of such a great biodiversity has shaped into a formal ethnobotanical culture in the area transmitted through generations. We suspect that the versatility of some plant species has greater influence on the culture. Therefore, the prime objective of the study is to understand this unique human-plant relationship in the valley and to create scientific roots for the selection and practice of herbs in the ethnobotanical domain of the district.
