Abstract
Background: The flowering plants have a number of uses as food, specifically as grains, sugars, vegetables, fruits, oils, nuts, and spices. In addition, plants and their products serve a number of other needs, such as dyes, fibers, timber, fuel, medicines, and ornamentals. The contribution of the angiosperms to biodiversity and habitat is so extremely important that human life is totally dependent on it. Materials and Methods: Angiosperm diversity at village Sabgram of Bogra district, Bangladesh conducted during March 2013 to July 2014. All the species were noted and time to time the areas were visited to see when they flowered. For the morphological study, different types of species were examined again and again in order to see if there was any variation or not. They were collected at flowering stages and herbarium specimens were prepared as vouchers. In this practice standard method was followed. Results: A total of 196 species belonging to 160 genera under 69 families were recorded. One hundred nineteen (119) medicinal plants have been recorded with their uses for the cure of more than 87 diseases, and some of these are skin disease, diarrhea, dysentery, fever, earache, piles, inflammations, rheumatism, dyspepsia, constipation, diabetes, kidney disease, bronchitis, ulcers, anemia, asthma, ringworm, herpes, jaundice, headache, opthalmia, cough, eye disease leprosy, menstrual disease and others. Conclusion: The present study was made an inventory of the angiosperm diversity in the study area and documentation of long-established knowledge on the medicinal uses of these plants is essential for conservation efforts for the plants resources and new drug development.
