About this book

Brings together applied and fundamental research from botanists, chemists, biochemists, agricultural scientists, veterinarians and physicians and advice from regulatory bodies. It consists of edited papers from the Fifth International Symposium on Poisonous Plants, held in Texas, USA in May 1997


"Brings together applied and fundamental research from botanists, biochemists, agricultural scientists, veterinarians, and physicians, plus advice from regulatory bodies, on all aspects of poisonous plants, mycotoxicoses, and herbal intoxications. Describes adverse effects of these substances, and details methods of detection, isolation, and identification of the chemical compounds responsible. The biochemistry of plant-associated toxins and their mechanisms of action are investigated, and protocols are given for management or eradication, immunization programs, and withholding periods for metabolic detoxification. Of interest to toxicologists, food industry regulators, and plant scientists. Chapters originated as papers at a May 1997 symposium held in Texas. Garland is affiliated with the Department of Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology at Texas A&M University."--SciTech Book News
