Ethnobotany, Plants and Learning Media


Many plants that grow wild have not been cultivated and there is little public knowledge of the properties of these plants. This study aims to reveal knowledge about the use of plants used by the Lauje tribe in Siboang village by identifying the types, and parts of plants used, the benefits and methods of processing plants, and making the research results as learning media in the form of pocketbooks. The research was conducted in Siboang Village, Sojol Subdistrict, Donggala Regency, in August 2020. The research respondents consisted of 7 people who knew the use of useful plants representing the Lauje tribe. This type of research is descriptive and exploratory. The method used was the roaming method and samples were taken randomly. The development model used in this study was the 4-D model (four-D models). This 4-D model consists of 4 main stages, namely: (1) define, (2) design, (3) develop, and (4) disseminate. The results obtained as many as 43 plants that were useful for everyday life and believed by the public to have the potential to cure diseases. A total of 43 types of plants were found in Siboang Village consisting of 28 families, the largest being Arecaceae, Poaceae, and Zingiberaceae, each consisting of 4 species. These types of plants are used for various benefits, among others. As a food ingredient, as a medicine, as a spice, as a complement to traditional ceremonies, handicrafts as additional income, and as fuel. This research produces a product in the form of a pocketbook with a percentage of 83% (Very Appropriate) as a medium of learning.
