Narcissus and Daffodil is the first book to provide a complete overview of the genus Narcissus. Prized for centuries in western Europe as an ornamental plant, it has recently attracted attention as a source of potentially valuable pharmaceuticals. In eastern European countries, however, Narcissus and other Amaryllidaceae have been valued as a source of galanthamine for several decades.Presenting original research material and information not accessible outside eastern Europe, Narcissus and Daffodil contains over 1,700 references, making it an invaluable text for graduates and researchers both in academia and industry. It will be of particular importance for people working in the fields of horticulture, agriculture, medicine, pharmacology and perfume chemistry and drug manufacture.
The value of this book is collecting so much information, from several languages, in once place. The material is an excellent review. Recommended . - E-Streams, Vol. 7, No. 4, April 2004
