A survey research was conducted on some medicinal plant species envisaged of having the potential for preservation of herbal preparations. The aim was to determine whether there is an interspecific relationship among some selected medicinal plant species using their total extracts as the basis for computerization. To this end, statistical model comprising the Duncan’s Multiple Range Test and Principal Component Analysis (PCA) were applied to the total extract obtained from the medicinal plant species harvested from Mampong- and Mamfe-Akuapem environs to determine the existence of variations. The results showed the existence of variation and some of the medicinal plant species were more influential or weighted more than others.
