Abstract

Objective: This research was carried out to record the usage of plants, parts of this plant used, and methods of preparation by people living in 10 districts and 58 villages of Erzincan province. Material and Method: The medicinal plant species used by the local people for treatment, was collected and determined. All traditionally used information was collected; herbarium materials were prepared, They are deposited in Erzincan Binali Yıldırım University herbarium (EBYU), Erzincan Binali Yıldırım University. Result and Discussion: A total of 100 medical plants taxa pertaining to 39 families were defined in this research. Out of these, 88 species grew naturally, while 12 species were cultivated. The most widespread plant families were Asteraceae (14), Lamiaceae (8), and Rosaceae (14). Infusion was the most widely used preparation method. The utilization of traditional medicine was still extensive among the people in Erzincan. However, through increscent health service facilities in region, herbal medicine seemed to be more related to health care and illness prevention than curation. There is also the loss of traditional knowledge as it receives new immigrants. There is a gradual loss of traditional knowledge on the use of medicinal plants, both in younger generations and due to migration.
