AB  - BACKGROUND: The use of natural resources for the treatment of acute respiratory
      infections in children is a widespread practice within traditional communities,
      especially by women by being the primary caregivers. This study aimed to perform 
      ethnobiological survey of plants and animals used for the treatment of acute
      respiratory infections in children of a traditional community in the municipality
      of Barbalha, Ceara, Brazil. METHODS: It is a descriptive exploratory study with a
      quantitative approach, developed in Sitio Santo Antonio, in the municipality of
      Barbalha, Ceara, Brazil. As a tool for data collection, was applied a
      questionnaire and a semi-structured interview. Data analysis used descriptive
      statistics (simple and percentage rate) and the Relative Frequency of Citation.
      RESULTS: The research included a total of 54 informants. In total, there were 38 
      species cited. According to the Relative Frequency of Citation the following
      species were the most cited: Ocimum basilicum L. (0.59), Eucalyptus globulus
      Labili (0.59), Plectranthus amboinicus (L.) Spreng (0.42), Hyptis suaveolens (L.)
      Poit. (0.24), Allium aescalonicum L. (0.22) and Mentha arvensis L. (0.18). Among 
      the symptoms mentioned by the research subjects to treat the acute respiratory
      infections in childhood, there were: fever; cough; coughing with secretions; sore
      throat; hoarseness; tiredness; nasal congestion. CONCLUSIONS: It is important the
      knowledge about the usefulness of natural resources as alternative practices in
      diseases treatment, seeking to rescue popular knowledge used in the traditional
      community and fomenting the need to consider cultural aspects in the full
      practice to children's health care.
