About this book

The present volume provides an in-depth introduction to the Caucasus, as well as the three countries covered (Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Sakartvelo [Republic of Georgia]), followed by an overview of 129 important plant species in the region. The plant chapters feature a modem overview of taxonomy, local names, and information on the ecology and distribution of all species. The ethnobotanical information provides both an overview on historic uses, as well as data from the most recent scientific studies of plant use in the region, and contains the most up-to-date literature sources.
