Project Summary:
The project aims to work with indigenous populations within the Manu Biosphere Reserve (RBM) in Peru to consolidate their traditional knowledge of medicinal plants, and support it with scientific knowledge on population biology, dynamics, management and propagation, leading to a management plan for the sustainable conservation, use and commercialisation of forest medicinal plants.
