Abstract

In this study medicinal uses of Algae and Mosses are investigated in manuscripts of Ibn-i Baytar (Ibn al Baithar), Ibn-i Sina (Avicenna), Huneyn bin Ishak (Joannitus), Dioscorides and Plinius. Ulva lactuca and Fucus sp. have been identified according to the descriptions given in these manuscripts. It is designated that the Arabic term "Tuhlub" occupies both the meanings of any algal species and Lemna minor of Spermatophyta.
