AbstractA survey was conducted along Asamagbe stream bank of the Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria, Ibadan in order to assess the numerous medicinal plants present in the area. 98 species in 92 genera and 49 families were identified. Trees were most common (44%) among the plant life forms identified. Interviews were conducted with local people who reported medicinal uses. These uses are also supported from previous studies. We conclude that it is important to adopt conservation practices for sustainable plant use within and outside the study area in-view of the ecological function of the stream bank and the local therapeutic value of these plant resources.
