Abstract: In order to understand the plant resources for treating snake and insect injuries in western Hunan,the resource library for military mateira medica is constructed.Field sampling survey and literature review were used to comprehensively analyze the military herbal resources of treating snake and insect injuries in western Hunan.The results show that there are 284 species of plants for treating snake and insect injuries in western Hunan,affiliated to 207 genera in 94 families.Living habits are mainly herbaceous,while the habitat is dominated by the forest.Distributed horizontally,plants are more abundant in the northern area than in the southern area.Vertically,species show a trend to increase first and then decrease with the increase of elevation.Among them,military herbs are the most distributed in the altitude range of 600 to 1 299 m.Regional geographical composition is complex and diverse.The families are dominated by a worldwide and pan-tropical distribution,and the genus is dominated by pan-tropical distribution and northern temperate distribution.Species are mainly distributed in East Asia,endemic to China and tropical Asia.The majority are of whole-part medicinal plants for variety of uses,with the right amount of fresh products mashed for the affected place or with right amount of decoction.At present,western Hunan province is rich in the plant resources for the treatment of snake and insect injuries,but the development and utilization is not appropriate,so the development and research should be strengthened for sustainable utilization.
