"The book is a wealth of multi-disciplinary information, including a synopsis of plant morphology and anatomy, plant taxonomy with notes on the families of flowering plants and their products, commercial plant drug production, ethnopharmacology, and metabolic pathways and secondary metabolites. Here is an essential reference work that also justifies why plants and botany are so vital to human life."Plant Talk, January 2004
book has been extensively revised, certain sections rewritten and additional chapters by specialist contributors included, bringing it up to date in the ever advancing field of pharmacognosy. Each section of the book is well presented with current and comprehensive referencing plus relevent illustrations. This bigger and better edition has much to offer those working in the field of phyto-medicine including aromatherapists and educators. It constitutes a 'must have' text."The International Journal of Aromatherapy
"Trease and Evans" is the encyclopaedic reference work on pharmacognosy - the study of those natural substances, principally plants, that find a use in medicine. Its popularity and longevity stem from the book's balance between classical (crude and powdered drugs' characterization and examination) and modern (phytochemisty and pharmacology) aspects of this branch of science, as well as the editor's recognition in recent years of the growing importance of complementary medicines, including herbal, homeopathic and aromatherapy.
