“…Lamiaceae and Asteraceae, together with Solanaceae, were the families with the highest number of species in surveys in urban home gardens carried out by Eichemberg et al (2009), Carniello et al (2010), Meyer et al (2012) and Vásquez et al (2014). This finding can be explained because of their cosmopolitan distribution and because such families include many species with bioactive compounds that are used with medicinal purposes (Di Stasi et al 2002).…”

“…Notwithstanding, aside from the material benefits, home gardens are important to women because they are related to their domestic duties, labor patterns, productive decisions, aesthetic sensibilities and cultural roles (Howard 2006). Despite their knowledge regarding ornamental plants, in a general way women have extensive knowledge about medicinal plants because they are responsible for the preparation of medicines and for the health care of the family, while knowledge of men about medicinal plants is particularly restricted to species in the forest (Vásquez et al 2014). Thus, house-lot gardens are a way for women to manifest specialized knowledge and skills without competing with men (Howard 2006).…”

“…In rural properties in the Brazilian Amazon region, Acacia mangium has been planted for the production of wood for export (Barros et al 2009), whereas Jacaranda copaia has been used to provide thermal comfort for cattle due to shading, and also for the future obtaining of wood, and Dipteryx odorata has been planted for medicinal purposes (Santos and Mitja 2010). Leaves and seeds of Dipteryx odorata are used in the form of tea and also with alcohol maceration, for internal use, to combat headaches, cough, indigestion, and epilepsy (Vázquez et al 2014).…”

“…vezes o isolamento ou semi isolamento geográfico de comunidades, bem como, as dificuldades de acesso físico e/ou econômico aos insumos para sobrevivência fazem com que os moradores optem pelos recursos naturais disponíveis em suas localidades. Ratificam ainda os resultados obtidos por www.rara.unir.br www.rara.unir.br Berg (2010), onde vegetais empregados com finalidade medicinal são as únicas fontes de remédios em locais distantes; e por Vásquez et al, (2014) que alega que os remédios caseiros ainda são de grande valor para o tratamento de doenças mais comuns.…”
