About this book
Second edition brings together relevant, practical information about various types of natural products produced by plants and their uses in today's world. With six new chapters, the revision incorprates significant advances in molecular biology and plant biotechnology, extraction protocols, and analytical characterizations. The book also provides examples of how plant products can be used for prevention and treatment of various diseases, nutrition, textiles, and more. Resources for conservation, medicinal and nutritional research, and private cultivation are also included.
