ETHNOBOTANICAL STUDIES ON FLORAS USED FOR STORAGE IN BAYELSA STATE, NIGERIA

Ihinmikaiye, Samuel Olatokunbo; Ochekwu, Edache Bernard; Ikuli, Josiah Muonam

Abstract: Ethnobotanical study on the plant species used for storage was carried out within forty communities in Bayelsa State. Eight plant species belonged to six different families were identified as botanicals valued for storage and preservative purposes, most of which are herbs. The result revealed that the plant species identified were alleged to be safe, available and exhibit different growth habits. However, two of the species (Braschystegia nigerica and Xylopia aethiopica) are trees, and are rare as they served other primary uses. Different sections of the plant species were extracted for storage purposes, and members of Marantaceae were the most exploited for storage. As the pattern of plants use among locals becomes ecologically unsustainable, there is a need to document the floras use for storage purposes and determine their abundant status in the State.
