|Abstract: ||Ethnobotanical surveys conducted in north-eastern Portugal reported plant knowledge and uses of several wild species in folk medicine based on field studies using ethnographic methodologies.
Taking advantage of a multidisciplinary team, besides botanical inventories and sociocultural and anthropological studies, we set out applied phytochemical research on locally used medicinal plants (more frequently cited, i.e. frequency of citation > 50%) that have special cultural significance. Experimental phytochemical research points to pharmacological effects that confirm the importance of the empirical use of these species and their contribution to a good health condition.|
