Abstract

This volume brings together information from myriad sources, including German Commission E monographs and the WHO, to form a highly structured and clear encyclopedia. Entries for each medicinal plant describe classical uses and properties, together with their pharmacology and therapeutic principles. The result highlights the potential of Indian herbs for Western medicine by placing findings on a scientific platform.
