About this book

Language: English

Some Important Medicinal Plants of the Western Ghats, India is the output of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) sponsored research project implemented between October 1993 and March 1999 by Arya Vaidya Sala (AVS), Kottakkal, Kerala State, India. Twenty species of medicinal plants growing predominantly in the Western Ghats of Southern India were selected for an in-depth study. These species were selected because of the high demand for them, borne out by information on the number of formulations they are used in (especially Ayurveda) and/or status of threat to their natural population in Southern India. Information of distribution, parts of plant extensively used in medicines, well-known Ayurvedic preparations in which employed and a comprehensive taxonomic description are given. The results of intensive pharmacognostic study are provided to serve as a reference material for checking adulteration. Along with this, results of nursery study are also given to provide information on cultivation methods for each species.

It is hoped that the exhaustive information of pharmacognostic features provided in respect of the twenty species selected for the study will go a long way in providing an impetus for further scientific research and documentation of other medicinal plant species and help combat adulteration and encourage efforts to increase the resource base.
