an invaluable resource that will become a critical reference to a great diversity of specialists in the fields of public health, chemistry, phytomedicine, ethnobotany, toxicology, and botany. - Journal of Natural Products "No library can be without [it] and no specialist can do without consulting [it]." - American Scientist " will certainly be consulted by physicians, pharmacists, and herbal healers " - New Phytologist "...this volume belongs on the shelves of medical and botanical libraries. Large public libraries and academic libraries may also want to consider it." - Booklist Reference Books Bulletin This two-volume work (the first appearing in 1999, the second in 2001) is a veritable compendium on 50 medicinal plants of the world. Gleaned from over 4,700 literature sources, Medicinal Plants of the World will appeal to professionals in medicine, pharmacology, and herbal practice. The author, a biologist, selected species of plants based on consumer interest, available data, and level of use in developing countries...Compiling such a vast amount of information from an extensive pool of literature was certainly a labor of love and an abiding service for researchers. We only hope that future volumes will appear. An encyclopedic work of lasting utility, Medicinal Plants of the World is recommended for public, academic, medical, and research libraries. - E-streams Electronic Book Reviews Review of Volume 1:* This book is a wonderful contribution to the knowledge of medicinal plants of the world...Mr. Ross is to be congratulated and complimented for such a well-done book.
