Abstract: Xylopia aethiopica (Dunal) A. Rich., a medicinal plant indigenous to Ghana and other parts of the West African sub-region, has a wide application in traditional medicine The literature on its ethnobotanical uses, chemical constituents and biological activities has been reviewed. The chemical constituents are principally monoterpenes, diterpenes and aporphinoids. I he biological studies reveal signi ficant antimicrobial, anti-feedant, anti-inflammatory, hypotensive and anti-tumour activities These biological activities provide supportive evidence for its use in traditional medicine.
