BORCARD, G.G. et al. Ethnopharmacological study surrounding urban forest as a resource for the implementation of herbal medicine in the National Health System. Rev. bras. plantas med. [online]. 2015, vol.17, n.4, suppl.2, pp.928-936. ISSN 1516-0572.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1983-084X/14_117.

The ethnopharmacological study can be defined as an interdisciplinary scientific exploration of biologically active agents, traditionally used by human populations and part of a shared body of knowledge. Thus, the current study focused on the ethnopharmacological research of medicinal plants, in the surroundings of the urban forest in the Biological Reserve PoçoD’Anta in Juiz de Fora / MG, aiming on the implementation of the herbal medicine in the Public Health System. For this purpose, a survey was held with three different groups: health professionals, members of the community and local experts.Concerning the health professionals, it could be verified that none of the participants were able to explain the term Phytotherapic and neither they had knowledge about the relevant and applicable policies.The acceptability for the implantation of Phytotherapy for public health use was observed, but the knowledge about this subject is limited. From the interviews with members of the community and local experts, a total of 20 plant species were selected for a statistical analysis and pharmacological confirmation. These results made possible to compare the cultural knowledge with the scientific one, defining 14 species that could be grown in the garden of the Biological Reserve Poço D’Anta, based on their local relevance. The results can support the approximation of the popular knowledge with the scientific one, providing a basis for the maintenance and promotion of the Phytotherapy in the Public Health System.
