About this book

Common Medicinal Plants of Portland, Jamaica has been designed as a field guide for the identification of some of the most common medicinal plants encountered in Jamaica. It is based on the traditional knowledge of collaborating Maroon herbalists who have been cultural practitioners for more than 25 years. This guide includes photos and illustrations of 47 common species along with plant descriptions, medicinal uses and other pertinent information. Most of the plants are widespread species that may be found throughout many parts of the tropics, so this book is useful throughout the Caribbean region and other tropical landscapes. It is hoped that this research can serve as a foundation for further documentation and preservation of Maroon traditional botanical knowledge. Proceeds from the sale of Common Medicinal Plants of Portland, Jamaica will go directly to the collaborating herbalists to assist them in the perpetuation of the traditional cultural practices of the Windward Maroons.
