Overview

Researchers of medicinal plants often find unfamiliar references to herbs when reading through ethnobotanical literature. Very often, they are familiar with the plant but not with the name used in a given context. This book eliminates the time-consuming task of further research by providing 28,000 common names of medicinal plants in a single source.
International in scope, this unique reference allows matching of scientific and common names through a comprehensive cross index. The first volume is organized alphabetically by scientific name while the other two volumes are a cross index by common name. Phylum, order, and family are also provided as well as the language of the common name which helps to identify its geographic location.
