Still considered the definitive work on medicinal herbs and their uses after two decades, the Handbook of Medicinal Herbs has undergone a long-anticipated revision. In the second edition, world-renowned ethnobotanist James A. Duke provides up-to-date data on over 800 of the world’s most important medicinal plant species. The book contains more species, phytochemicals, proven indications, folk indications, and dosage data than the first edition in a new easier to use format. The in-depth content, the addition of color plates and over 200 black and white illustrations makes this book the most comprehensive resource on medicinal herbs available.
NEW IN THE SECOND EDITION:
· Over 100 color plates, 4 color maps
· Over 200 black and white illustrations
· Over 800 medicinal plants ― more than twice as many as the previous edition organized alphabetically by common name
· More herbs from the African, Ayurvedic, Chinese, and Jamu traditions
