Abstract

豆蔻类中药药用历史悠久, 因名称、外形和功效相似, 加之姜科植物不易辨别,迄今, 有关豆蔻类中药的基原问题尚未达成共识。该研究通过对历代本草文字记述与绘图进行考察, 结合市场调查与植物分类学研究, 探讨了豆蔻类植物药(包括红豆蔻、草豆蔻、白豆蔻、草果、肉豆蔻、小豆蔻)在植物分类学上的相互关系以及药用品种的历史沿革, 并对药材豆蔻与原植物白豆蔻名称统一的问题提出了建议。

Lots of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) shares the same Chinese common names "Doukou". Because of similar Chinese names, appearances, functions and original plants, there are still no compromise on the original plants of "Doukou" up to now. Moreover, "Doukou" referred to more than one source of species, that is, it might refer to the Chinese crude drug derived from different plants during different historical periods. In order to identify the original botanical plants of "Doukou" during different historical periods and the relationship between these "Doukou", new bencaological studies of TCM under the name "Doukou" were carried out, which included the studies on literal description, image description, market investigation and systematic botanical research. A suggestion was made to change the Chinese name "Doukou" (Amomi Fructus Rotundus) to "Baidoukou".
