Phytotherapy in the Subequana Valley, Abruzzo, central Italy.
We report on the phytotherapeutic applications in the Subequana Valley, Abruzzo, central Italy, that we found from direct investigation among the people that are still using plants for curing human and animal diseases. The plant species utilized (about sixty) are those native to the region and easily available. Some of the applications are strictly local and are not known in other regions of Italy.
