About this book

Language: English

PROTA 11 deals with the medicinal plants of Tropical Africa. Because the group is very large, it has been subdivided into 4 volumes. In PROTA 11(1), published in 2008, a total of 894 medicinal plants, belonging to a selection of 29 botanical families, were described in 406 review articles. This volume, PROTA 11(2), describes 409 medicinal plants in 146 review articles. All articles are illustrated with geographic distribution maps and many with botanical line drawings.

Can be purchased with or without a CD-ROM, which allows for easy searching through the texts and contains in addition numerous photographs.
