The consensus of those 98 species, for which a therapeutic use has been documented in at least nine of the 28 independent studies is presented in Table 3 together with a critical evaluation of the pharmacological and toxicological evidence based on existing literature. It highlights the most frequently cited taxa in the MAMPDB, which have roots in Olmec, Maya, Zapotec and Aztec as well as traditional Mediterranean medicine.
