Conservation of European Biodiversity through Exploitation of Traditional Herbal Knowledge for the Development of Innovative Products

Project description

Culturing a European hotspot of medicinal plant biodiversity

Southeast Europe, including the Balkan Peninsula, hosts an exceptionally rich biodiversity with plant species that are unique to this region and those used in traditional medicine. The Balkan people have a long history and profound understanding of the plants and their properties and this treasure-trove of bioactive natural compounds has become the focus of numerous ethnobiological field studies. Concurrently, the depletion of medicinal and aromatic plant populations has raised an alarm. EthnoHERBS is integrating traditional knowledge of plants used in the treatment of wounds with detailed chemical activity studies. The outcomes will be used to develop organic cultivation and eco-friendly extraction techniques, supporting the development of new products and ensuring the preservation of this rich cultural heritage.
