The look deals with about 210 important medicinal plants used by the traditional herbal healers in India. Given vernacular names in English, Sanskrit and many other Indian regional languages, short diagnostic taxonomic description, ecology and distributional aspects provided under each plant and up-to-date information about the ongoing research of every medicinal plant mentioned here makes this book more reader friendly and advanced. Latest accepted and valid botanicals names in accordance with ICBN have been adopted for the medicinal plants to sustain correct identity.
The book contains more than 2200 traditional herbal practices as per the different disorders, methodology of drug preparation and procedure of intake. Easy language, 90 high resolution colour photographs and systematic presentation of medicinal plants with major emphasis given on traditional herbal therapies, usage, and comparative analysis along with data-tables make the study more exhaustive and generate temptation to read it again and again.
