Sažetak

In the wider area of the Western Balkans, people have often starved throughout history, although they have been surrounded by a very rich edible wild flora. This paper documents the use of wild-growing plants and fungi in the Municipality of Vitez in Central Bosnia, as well as data on specific local plant names, their use, traditional customs and intangible heritage related to wild plants and fungi. In semistructured interviews we recorded 66 plant species (distributed within 39 plant families) and 9 mushroom species (from six mushroom families). According to research findings, the largest number of plants is used as medicinal herbs (53 species), as well as for human food (34 species). The species that have been mentioned most frequently are Rubus idaeus, Urtica dioca, Vaccinium myrtillus, Sambucus nigra, Taraxacum officinale, Corylus avellana, etc. Interesting uses noted by this research include Stellaria media (common chickweed) which is used as green salad, as well as Hedera helix (the common ivy) whose flowers are used to make a medicinal tea for curing peritonsillar abscess and fistulas, and Loranthus europaeus (yellow mistletoe) used as a healing ointment against frostbite. The most commonly used mushrooms are: Boletus edulis (cep), Lactarius sanguifluus (bloody milk cap), and Cantharellus cibarius (fox glove). In conclusion, the traditional use of wild-growing plants is still well-preserved in the daily life of the humans in research area, and still transmitted orally from generation to generation.
