About this book

In Poisonous Plants of Pakistan, the author has collected, in one volume, information about the poisonous plants that can be found in Pakistan, which previously could only be found in scattered, specialized scientific papers.

Detailed descriptions of the plants and how to avoid injury from them are accompanied by the authors own accurate illustrations which highlight the poisonous parts of each plant. There is also useful information on how to recognise the symptoms of poisoning and provide first aid.
