Abstract: Tragopogon dubius scop., familiarly known as goat’s beard, is a herbaceous dicotyledonous plant, which belongs to Asteraceae family. The species is studied because there are no sufficient data in the autochthonous literature and the information we have only refers to the macroscopic characteristics, ecology, area and variability and its use in the folk medicine, as well. For this purpose, the species, which was harvested within an area close to Siutghiol lake in Constanta district, was identified and dried according to the instructions in the literature in order to obtain Tragopogoni dubiusi radix and Tragopogoni dubiusi cauli et folium vegetal products. The macroscopic analysis confirmed the description of the species in the literature and the anatomo-histological study highlighted the presence of the laticifer vessels, which characterize the Asteraceae family. The global chemical analysis of the two vegetal products highlighted the presence of certain chemical compounds that justifies some of the use of the species in the traditional medicine. Also, the determinations showed the highest solubility of the active principles in ethanol 50%, which recommends the obtaining, analysis and test of these alcoholic extracts with possible therapeutic potential.
Keywords: Tragopogon dubius, Asteraceae family, macroscopic analysis, transverse section, pharmacognostic analysis.
