Almost all plants and plant products used in
processing traditional medicines are woody
species and are collected from the wild. Very
rarely are medicinal plants traditionally
cultivated in Uganda. With the increasing local
and international demand of traditional medicine,
wild plants are threatened with extinction as a
result of both over exploitation and poor
extraction methods.
