About this book

Medicinal and aromatic plants (MAPs) have accompanied mankind from its very early beginnings. Their utilisation has co-evolved with homo sapiens itself bringing about a profound increase in our scientific knowledge of these species enabling them to be used in many facets of our life (e.g. pharmaceutical products, feed- and food additives, cosmetics, etc.). Remarkably, despite the new renaissance of MAPs usage, ca. 80 % of the world's population is relying on natural substances of plant origin, with most of these botanicals sourced from the wild state. This first volume, and ultimately the series, provides readers with a wealth of information on medicinal and aromatic plants.
