About this book

The use of endangered species in oriental medicines presents some of the most challenging issues in wildlife conservation today. Despite protection from CITES, populations of already critically threatened animals have declined drastically since the mid-1980s, largely because of the medicinal trade. This study by TRAFFIC USA identifies oriental medicines for sale in many countries, with a particular focus on the USA.
