The species of the genus Commiphora have been known to various cultures for thousands of years and remain an important economic resource. Commiphora gum resin, known as "myrrh", has been used for medicine, incense, industrial uses such as glue, sealer, and pottery glaze, and for personal hygiene products such as tooth paste and mouth wash. The Genus Commiphora: Preservation through Horticulture, Volume 1, has been written in four sections: ecology, morphology, culture & cultivation, and species. The primary objective of The Genus Commiphora is three-fold: to provide a basic course in the botany of the species, to provide specific cultivation information as a means to preserve the species through horticulture, and to create a reference book with a compilation of 65 species in this volume.
