1. Cruz, Rosa da. Conservação de Pau-rosa (Pterocarpus indicus willd.) em Timor-Leste: estudo de caso.

Degree: 2017, Universidade de Évora

Pterocarpus indicus é uma espécie de árvores de grande porte, com distribuição natural no leste e sudeste asiáticos, incluindo a ilha de Timor. Encontra-se em florestas primárias e secundárias e tem elevada importância ecológica, económica e cultural para Timor-Leste. Tem grande potencialidade na reabilitação de solos, visto ter crescimento rápido, propagar-se facilmente tanto por semente, como por estaca e estabelecer associações simbióticas, fixadoras de azoto. Tem utilização na construção, mobiliário e medicinal tradicional, mas a sua importância é devida à madeira, que tem elevada qualidade e valor comercial. Devido à exploração excessiva, as populações estão em declínio e a espécie está categorizada como Vulnerável. Por se revestir de especial interesse para Timor-Leste e porque a informação é escassa e dispersa, apresenta-se neste trabalho uma síntese do conhecimento disponível, com vista à preservação da espécie e das comunidades associadas em Timor Leste, onde deve ser alvo de medidas de conservação; Abstract Conservation of Narra (Pterocarpus indicus Willd.) in East Timor - a Case of Study Pterocarpus indicus is a species of large trees, with natural distribution in the East and Southeast Asia, including the island of Timor. It is found in primary and secondary forests and has high ecological, economic and cultural importance in East Timor. It has great potential in soil rehabilitation, since it has fast growth, easily propagates by both seed and cuttings and establishes symbiotic, nitrogen-fixing associations. It is used in construction, furniture and traditional medicine, but its importance is due to the wood, which has high quality and commercial value. Due to overexploitation, populations are declining and the species is categorized as Vulnerable. Because it has particular interest in East Timor and information is scarce and dispersed, a synthesis of the available knowledge is presented in this work, aiming to preserving the species and associated communities in East Timor, where special conservation measures should be addressed. Advisors/Committee Members: Simões, Maria Paula.

2. Callis, Kristine Lee. The History of Plant Use in Laos: Analysis of European Accounts of Plant Use for Primarily Religious and Medicinal Purposes.

Degree: MS, Botany, 2005, North Carolina State University

A Review of manuscripts written by European explorers and colonists affords the opportunity to develop a clearer understanding both of types of plants employed and their significance in religion and medicine during the 16th to 19th centuries. This paper is a distillation of accounts by thirteen European explorers, written between 1545 until 1861, about Laos and the Lao people in Siam. All of the references to plants and plant use have been extracted for an analysis of which plants European explorers viewed being used traditionally in Laos during this time period and information on how these plants were used and collected. Many of the plants described in the texts were medicinal in nature and some have been examined for modern pharmaceutical use. These pharmaceutical studies have substantiated the effectiveness of historical medicinal plant use. The texts also describe plants that were used in religious ceremonies and that continue to play an important role in Lao culture. Future comparative analysis of these early records with modern day observations of plant use should prove productive in formulating assessments of Traditional Environmental Knowledge loss and the impact of this loss on daily life. Understanding the plants that are important to native Lao in the past can lead to better methods of conservation in the future.
