Importance socio-culturelle, potentialités économiques et thérapeutiques du Carapa (Meliaceae) au Sénégal

Abstract : Carapa species are trees and shrubs of tropical forests. In Africa, although Carapa species are widely distributed and diversified from Senegal to Rwanda, their commercial exploitation remains restricted despite their known domestic uses. In Senegal, Carapa is most abundant in Mid and lower Casamance and in the gallery forests of East Senegal. Carapa species are recognised for socio-cultural or medicinal importance throughout their area of distribution.Traditionally the oil is extracted by women in menopause and is used to treat dozens of illnesses and in cosmetics. Leaves, bark and roots are also used.
