Ethnopharmacologic Documentation of Selected Philippine Ethnolinguistic Groups: The Mangyan (Tadyawan) People of Mindoro Island
An ethnopharmacological study of the Mangyans (Tadyawans) of Mindoro Island, Philippines was conducted in May 2000 to April, 2001. The study included documentation of the ethnopharmacological knowledge and indigenous healing practices, and collection of voucher specimens of plants used by the Tadyawans. A total of 114 plants were documented. Documentation included scientific name, local name, the therapeutic indication, the plants parts used, the method of preparation and direction for use. Many of the medicinal plants used by the Tadyawans were noted to be known among the lowlanders. Evidences showed that these Mangyans are gradually losing their own culture including their materia medica. Thus, the urgent need for this documentation.
