It is in this context that if of a foundation of Macap, in 1764, whose military origins perfectly exemplificam the Portuguese actions of occupation and defense accomplishes of the Captainship of the Handle North, data its importance and strategical position for the economic development of the Amaznia. In its Report of Government of 1946, Gentile Janary Nunes, thus writes ' ' analyzing the interest of the Territory under the geographic point of view and politician, (…) I displayed my point of view personal (…): ) Macap is the main city of the Territory of the Amap; b) It is most found situated in conditions to take care of wants to the development of the regions of the Amap and Oiapoque, wants of the ones of Mazago and fluvial Jari whose commercial navigation is made solely by sea and; c) Frank Oferecenavegao for access of its port at any time of the year, for great and small ships; d) It possesss vast firm, bonanza proper lands to the creation and the agricultural works; e) $fortaleza can be transformed into tourist center due of Is Jose de Macap and to the landscape of the River Amazonas' '. The understanding that if identifies here is of that Macap, still in century XVIII, already it pointed potentialities and perspectives with respect to its development and urban support. Since then, the advance in this direction was limited, disarticulated and incompatible with the growth of the socioambientais and economic demands. The quarrel and estruturao of new proposals and mechanisms of development and urban sutentabilidade condition, not only, the future of the city of Macap, as well as are placed as prerogative to the Regional Development of the Amaznia. I understand myself, therefore, that this will only consolidate to the step of articulated actions intra and interregionalmente in the composition of integrated nets of economic development, social, cultural ambient.
Break-rock, guaran and espinheira-saint are examples of plants popularly known and used in the Amap for therapeutical ends, they exist ‘ ‘ as many curativas plants with quality that on them already is written true treated (BIAZZE, 2001, p.166) ‘ ‘ , but unhappyly, for not possessing one politics adjusted in the area of register of gotten products of medicinal plants, it is in doubt its effectiveness. The necessity demands and science searchs the unification of the progress with what the nature offers, respecting the medicinal culture of the people around the use of products or grass to cure males (ACCORSI, 2000). The medicinal plants had been always used, being in known the main past the half therapeutical one for treatment of the population. From the knowledge and popular use, some medicines used in the traditional medicine had been discovered, between them are therapeutical (popular use) and the fitoterpicos (manipulated) (BOTSARIS, 1999). Of this form through the etnobotnica that if searchs the knowledge and the rescue of traditional botanical knowing, particularly related to the use of the resources of the flora (ALMEIDA, 1993), These requirements can be faced as answers to the questions launched for the common medicine, where field of the knowledge is popular or scientific of the etnobotnica it would have to approach, among others aspects, the form as the man accumulates and transmits the knowledge on the environment, the generation where technologies to use the natural resources (election and domesticao of vegetal species, medicine production) and the impact of this same technology on the relation man-plant.
