The present manual, the most comprehensive publication in the field so far, affords scientists, researchers, students and layman alike valuable updated interdisciplinary information from disparate Indian sources on 440 herbs used for touch therapy, tattooing and adornments by various ethnic communities to form a highly structured referenced work of great help to the world at large with details of current nomenclature, English, Hindi and Sanskrit names, distribution, reproductive cycle, part(s) used, folk use(s), active constituents and the original source of information. Besides easy-to-understand textural matter, inclusion of 1 pie chart, 7 histograms, 31 photographs and 20 useful appendices are the other significant features of the present work.
