      Nowadays, in the tropics, agro-ecosystems and secondary vegetation are becoming increasingly important as provider of medicinal plants around rural villages. This could be due to forest scarceness and remoteness. It could also be explained by the fact that some forest remnants are respected or protected by the villagers for religious and ritual purposes.
