In Shan State, and across Myanmar, many people rely on herbal medicinal plants for their treatment of various diseases. However, this indigenous knowledge is only shared through verbal communication and that there is not any written documentation. This paper will discuss the findings of the ethnobotanical study done in four selected villages in Kun Lone Township, Lashio District, Myanmar. This study was done by a combination of methods, from plant species surveys, herbarium stand methods, to interviews with traditional healers. Taking this research together, the authors link pressing issues of health, plant availability, and the broader context of change in Myanmar.
The report lists Myanmar as one of the “Ten countries with the largest annual net loss of forest area, 1990–2010.”
