Media reviews
From the reviews: "This book ! consists of a general introduction to various aspects relevant for the study of South American medicinal plants and specific information on selected plant taxa. ! The value of the book consists for the most part in the excellent quality of the figures and the detailed anatomical and morphological descriptions of the plants. ! Overall, the book is very helpful for the identification of herbal drugs used in Venezuela and other South and Central American countries." (Johanna Kufer & Michael Heinrich, Journal of Plant Physiology, Vol. 160 (11), 2003) "The title of this volume refers to different aspects of South American medicinal plants. ! this book will no doubt be of interest to a wide range of readers, who will find valuable information on the use, remedial properties, and botanical features of medicinal plants of this tropical region of the world." (Gabriel Bernardello, Plant Systematics and Evolution, Vol. 235 (1-4), 2002)
