Abstract

Secondary forests are rich especially in biodiversity and ecosystems. Their richness generate a wide range of non-wood forest products including wood fuel, food, genetic material, medicinal and other secondary products such as latex, gums, resins, oils and bush meat from wildlife. Plants' contributions in human lives are unexplainable. Until today, there were only a few species being discovered and used widely, therefore efforts from various organizations were needed to discover these plants and their uses. The study carried out in three different secondary forest types with different diversity and plant composition. The diversity of ethnobotanical resources in different types of secondary forest reveals the existing status of ethnobotanical resources. Data analyzed establish plant distribution, species diversity, relative density and relative frequency along with the plant uses. The results of this study indicate that secondary forest in Bau is rich in term of diversity and economic benefits.
