Addresses the geographic fragmentation of and confusion in the poisonous plant literature. It provides an international, authoritative, and comprehensive reference for toxicologists needing information on the human and animal toxicity of plants. Using accepted botanic names, it defines the set of toxic vascular plants of the world, thereby satisfying the need for an international standard of identity. Synonyms and common names are cross referenced with the botanic names for easy reference.
The book is, no doubt, a must-have reference for toxicologists, researchers, poison control centers, trade officials, physicians, and veterinarians. --Robert J George, Botanical Research Institute of Texas, 2010 "! an impressive and up-to-date encyclopedic compendium ! . ! should be considered as a core and mandatory addition to the professional and academic library Biological Sciences, Horticultural, and Pharmaceutical reference collections." -- James A. Cox in Midwest Book Review, 2008
