Synopsis

This is the Part I (A-K) of the second supplement to Glossary of Indian Medicinal Plants with Active Principles. The genesis is the pioneering work of R.L. Chopra and his co-authors: Glossary of Indian Medicinal Plants and its first supplement. The present volume covers about 850 medicinal genera including 1780 species of which about 700 are new ones did not find place in the first supplement. The nomenclature has been updated for all species and their properties, medicinal uses, chemical constituents and active principles, including disease-causing ones, have been described. Indian language names and distribution are also provided for new ones.

Life-saving compounds like vinblastine, vincristine, digoxin and digitoxin and other important ones such as gossypol have been dealt with in some details.

Studded with extensive Indian and foreign references, the volume should be an asset to economic botanists, research workers in various disciplines of science, and industrialists, particularly those dealing with pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
