Internet Seminar: The Role of Medicinal Plants in environmental
                             and Integrated biosystems 
Presented by :       Mr. Kenneth Anchang Yongabi FMENV/ZERI Research Centre,

                             Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi,

Date:                    08-22 March 2005 
Chairpersons:       Alejandro Herrnsdorf (Paraguay) and Mulumebet Worku
<>  (USA)
Background material: 
Organised by:       IOBB (      	
An evaluation on the role medicinal plants as an entity in integrated
biosystems and reviews past research works by the author, other sources, and
traditional knowledge surveyed from tribes in Cameroon, Nigeria and Benin
republic. Medicinal plant products and formulation can be used to attend to
human, livestock and plant diseases in an integrated biosystems, as
pesticides /tick sprays for plant pests and animals, creams for skin
problems in human and livestock. Plants such as Allium sativum (garlic),
Vernonia amygdalina (bitter leaf), Moringa oleifera (Horse raddish plant),
Lantana camara, Occimum gratissimum (basil) Aspilia africana (Iodine plant),
Carica papaya (pawpaw), Cucurbita pepo (pumpkin) amongst others were
identified as important candidate plants that could  bring about  hygiene
and sanitation. Kitchen sinks and garbage dumps treated with formulations
from these plants led to a reduction of 99.7-100% of the bacterial load.
Moringa oleifera seed extracts amongst others reduced hydraulic retention
time in anaerobic digestion, purified and recovered waste water while other
plants have the potentials to control nematodes, preserve food and control
mushroom disease, treat waste water for irrigation while controlling algae
and bacteria that may possibly clog pipes and emitters as well. The
conclusion is made that since medicinal plants can serve the major IBS
subsystems, there is the need to cultivate them in a prototype herbarium in
an Integrated biosystem site. 

Pls forward to friends
Thank you
