Manuscript submissions: Genetic Resources and Ethnobotany in Aromatic and Medicinal Plants

until 30 November 2024

There are a vast variety of plant species that are aromatic and medicinal in the world. These plants have long been recognized for their rich ethnobotanical heritage, bioactive compounds, and diverse potential applications. The usage and ingestion of landraces and wild herbs is preferred differently in different parts of the world. Actually, raw plant material is commonly extracted from natural environments to satisfy the expanding demands of the agriculture, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food flavoring, and beverage industries and other urban sectors.

Numerous conservation techniques, including both in situ and ex situ conservation, are required due to the growing interest in the usage of aromatic, medicinal, and nutraceutical plants around the world.

The current knowledge of its use worldwide, the scientific developments supporting this traditional knowledge, and strategies for conserving these species will all be covered in this Special Issue of Plants. This Special Issue provides an excellent opportunity to combine and synthesize recent research on plant breeding, ethnobotany, taxonomy, biodiversity, ecology, and conservation strategies to understand and promote the maintenance of plant diversity, as well as achieving sustainable agriculture and ecosystem management practices in the world.
