Medicinal plants are playing a vital role in the development of Bangladesh. There are about 6,500 plant species in different regions of Bangladesh. Among these, there are over 700 medicinal species or herbs. But many species of herbs and shrubs are disappearing from various regions or districts of the country.
The demand for herbal plants as raw material of the medicinal industry is increasing in Bangladesh as in the world. Unani, Ayurveda and homeopathy are now using as raw material in pharmaceutical products, as well as many herbal products in beauty parlors and cosmetics. In such a situation, it is the duty and responsibility of every individual in the country to protect the Medicinal plants and herbs from extinction.
Research became my favorite job in the last 4 years. I have worked on the fruit plants in 2008 and after that research work, I started working on the medicinal plants of Bangladesh. Doing research work on important and critical issues of the society is lovable and interesting to me. “A Study on Diversity of Medicinal Plants in Bangladesh” is a time benefiting topic which deserves due attention and importance for our country. I have made a fair attempt to prepare my topic with the best available information from the last three years.
The objectives of preparing this research work are to increase the capacity of the farmers and other groups of people for identifying of socio-economic problem to find out the nature and course of problem to create awareness of agricultural work related groups about the problem and to solve them through investigation.
Medicinal plants are an important wealth in our country. From long ago Medicinal plants assail their leaf, stem, root, fruit etc are used to protect desire. But with the much destructing of forest they are also destroyed. According to the scientist many of them are already extinct, so my research paper is very important in this time I am very happy to prepare this work within this year 2012. I would be more than rewarded if my study benefits the readers to some extent and stimulates thinking in the respective spheres.
It is worth whole to mention that in doing any important work the assistance and supervision is very essential. Preparation of a research paper is a hard work in the daily family life. I take a long time on this work and expressing my earnest gratitude to my family member who cooperated me a lot. In preparing this research I received whole hearted cooperation from my family members, my teacher M. A. M Jakir Hossain and My colleague Monjurul Haque. I express my gratitude and heartiest thanks to their valuable suggestions and sympathetic co-operation.
I am grateful to Dolon Prova, the editor of roddure.com for her cooperation and suggestions. I am also grateful to all faculty members, especially Khairul Alam Ratan and Farid Uddin of Mymensingh Govt. College and library authority for their earnest Co-operation.
There are more than 6000 species of plants grow in Bangladesh. The plants which are useful for healing several diseases are called medicinal plant. The main theme is that the herbal medicated plant is called the medicinal plant. Bacteria Fungi, Algae, Bryophytes Pteridophytes Gymnosperms, Angiosperm each of the group has medicinal plant. There are 722 medicinal plants in our country. They have much variety and diversity. They have diversity in size & shape, in habitat, in adaptation power, in flowering, in production season, in somatical element and in the activity on human life. We can detect or distinguish than easily for their individual diversity. We can use them in several purposes. Main of them are to control disease. Most of the antibiotic such as subtilin; `polimixin’ penicillin etc are produced from this medicinal plant besides this all of the Unani, Herbal, Kobiraji, Homeopath medicine are produced from medicinal plant. In this way different utility and characteristics based medicinal plant are also recognized weeds plant, aquatic plants, fruitat plant, forestall plant etc. We may get highly valuable medicine from some medicinal plants in future which help our next generations to treat chronic disease. So far the probable fuyure we should conserve the medicinal plant.

The plants which are useful for healing several diseases are called medicinal plant. The main theme is that the herbal medicated plant is called the medicinal plant? Bacteria Fungi, Algae, Bryophytes Pteridophytes Gymnosperms, Angiosperm each of the group has medicinal plant. There are 722 medicinal plants in our country. They have much variety diversity. They have diversity in size & shape, in habitat, in adaptation power, in flowering, in production season, in somatical element and in the activity on human life. We can detect or distinguish than easily for their individual diversity. We can use them in several purposes for their diversity. Main of them are to control disease. Most of the antibiotic such as subtilin; `polimixin’ penicillin etc are produced from this medicinal plant. Besides this all of the Unani, Herbal, Kobiraji, Homeopath medicine are produced from medicinal plant. In this way different utility and characteristics based medicinal plant are also recognized weeds plant, aquatic plants, fruitat plant, forestall plant etc. Each of the plant group has individual diversity and this diversity has special importance. Basically the habitual, morphological or somatic elemental diversity of medicinal plant is very valuable to us.
