Traditional Medicines in the Marshall Islands
(2004; 80 pages)


The following report is the result of an intensive literary research in early German sources and some insight gained during meetings with members of the "Marshall Island Society for the Protection of Traditional Medicine" (MISPTM) as well as some observations during field research on Wotho Atoll. Informal conversations led to a sharing of knowledge of both Fiji and the Marshall Islands about the medicinal use of the trees, shrubs and other plants. Chapters V and VI are about traditional medicines.
