About this book

Language: English

PROTA 11 deals with the medicinal plants of Tropical Africa. Because the group is very large, it will be subdivided into 4 volumes. In PROTA 11(1) 894 'primary use' medicinal plants, belonging to a selection of 26 botanical families, are described in 406 review articles. Many of the articles are illustrated with a geographic distribution map and a line drawing of the habit.

Can be purchased with or without a CD-ROM, which allows for easy searching through the texts and contains in addition numerous photographs.
