Abstract

Livestock is an important and integral component of agriculture production in Yemen. Animal production contributes by 28% of the total agricultural production income. The most important animals available in Yemen are cows, sheep, goats, donkeys, camels, horses, and chickens. Livestock caring is a matter of constant concern for the rural population and 95% of labour force in rural areas are women who are mostly responsible for livestock rearing, and mostly possess knowledge specific to treating sick animals1,2. Limited research has been conducted on the biological and toxicological activities of plants used for ethnoveterinary purposes in Yemen. Therefore, the aim of our work was to confirm the traditional use of some documented plants used in the ethnoveterinary medicine based on scientific evaluation of their bioactivity and toxic properties.
