About this book

Language: French

Plantes Médicinales Caribéennes is the first illustrated book that deals with this flora, bridging popular knowledge and scientific research. Presented in three volumes, it describes 300 medicinal plants and their botanical, chemical, and pharmacological aspects, and describes its uses but also defines the limits of these herbal medicines. A brief description of the disease and treatments made to them within the meaning of the Creole culture, will put these popular remedies in their sociocultural context and thus help to understand their significance. In this third volume one hundred of the plants most used in the Caribbean countries are presented.

Summary in French:
Plantes Médicinales Caribéennes est le premier ouvrage illustré qui traite de la flore en réalisant une confrontation entre les savoirs populaires et les recherches scientifiques. Présenté en trois tomes, il détaille 300 plantes médicinales sous leur aspect botanique, chimique, pharmacologique et recommande les usages bénéfiques mais également précise les limites de cette phytothérapie. Une description succincte des maladies et des traitements qui leur sont apportés, au sens de la culture créole, permettra de replacer ces remèdes populaires dans leur contexte socioculturel et ainsi d'en comprendre la signification. Dans ce troisième tome sont présentées cent plantes parmi les plus usitées dans les pays de la Caraïbe.
