Ethnopharmacological study of the Ati tribe in Nagpana, Barotac Viejo, Iloilo
A field survey was conducted in Nagpana, Barotac Viejo, Iloilo in November, 1989 to gather information and voucher specimens of ethnopharmacological plants used by the Ati tribe. A total of 46 plants were documented and are presented in detail. Each plant covered in the study is provided with the scientific name, Ati name, medicinal use, plant part used and method of preparation. It is apparent from the resulting survey that the Ati tribe in Nagpana, Iloilo still rely to a considerable degree on the local medicinal plants in treating common ailments. It is, however, important that the forests from where the Atis derive their medicinal plants, be properly conserved not only to assure continuous supply of said medicinal plants, but also to protect the watershed which is the source of their drinking water, farm irrigation and habitat for wildlife, a number of which are also food source.
