The Somali  ecosystem, human ecology and some aspects of Somali ethnobotany are  described. A large number of conventional and unconventional useful  plants of the arid and semi-arid study area are described in the given  cultural and socio-economic context and some ideas about the potential  utilization of these plants are given. Selected plants and genera  include Lannea malifolia, Rhus natalensis, Carissa edulis, Balanites  spp., Cordia spp., Boswellia spp., Commiphora spp., Cassia truncata,  Cordeauxia edulis, Boscia spp., Suaeda monoica, Dovyalis abyssinica,  Acacia spp., Moringa stenopetala, Ximenia americana, Berchemia discolor  and Ziziphus spp., Salvadora persica, Mimusops angel, Grewia spp. and  Corchorus spp. Indexes of Somali and scientific names are provided.  Recommendations for the protection or cultivation of some, not typically cultivated or non-domesticated plants are suggested.
