Contribution à l’étude ethnovétérinaire de plantes tropicales.

Abstract : The increased risk of development of animal diseases, the appearance of resistance to synthetic products, and the concern to improve production while respecting the environment, guide world agriculture towards more ecological control solutions for animal health. In tropical areas, where constraints are more pronounced, one solution could be the use of tropical plants inspired by traditional medicine practices. In fact, the presence of particular secondary metabolites in plants can provide them therapeutic properties. An inventory of 36 plant species of interest and belonging to 22 botanical families, as well as a first qualitative phytochemical study of the leaf part of four tropical plants : Artocarpus altilis var. Non seminifera, Coccoloba uvifera, Chrysobalanus icaco and Manihot esculenta, were made during this study. The results show that all the botanical families listed are rich in phenols and phenolic derivatives. In addition, the Myrtaceae family has a certain primacy in terms of activity on the digestive system. The phythochemical screening of the 4 plants allowed us to highlight the predominant presence of phenolic compounds and the absence of anthocyanins, coumarins and alkaloids.
