About this book

This volume, as the seventh of the series Medicinal and Aromatic Plants of the World, deals with the medicinal and aromatic plant treasures of the so-called Southern Cone, the three southernmost countries of South America: Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. Similarly to the previous volumes of the series, the main focus is to collect and provide information on major aspects of botany, traditional usage, chemistry, production or collection practices, and trade and utilization of this specific group of plants. The contributors, who are recognized professionals and specialist in their domain, have collected and presented state-of-the-art information on 41 species. Most of these are not only of interest from a scientific point of view but hold also a potential for the prospective utilization of the decreasing, occasionally overexploited and endangered medicinal plant resources of this huge continent. The book is expected to serve as a source of information also on some less known or less studied species. As such the volume is expected to support future research and public health professionals.
