The present book `Utilisation and Management of Medicinal Plants' encompass 21 research and review articles contributed by eminent researchers/scientists from various parts of the globe and covers the importance of scientific research on medicinal plants in the areas of botany, chemistry, biotechnology, toxicology and pharmacology. Following are some of the lead articles included in this book:

    _ Biotechnological Interventions for Enhancing the Availability of High Value Medicinal Plants
    _ Environmental Regulation of Secondary Metabolite Accumulation in Aromatic Crops
    _ Search for Useful Substances in Papyrus Cyperus papyrus
    _ Secondary Plant Products and their Biopotentials
    _ Bioactive Compounds from Fungi
    _ Approaches for Enhancing Yield of Artemisinin
    _ Pieris brassicae as Laboratory of Synthesis
