Treatise on Indian Medicinal Plants: Vol. 1

Asima Chatterjee (Editor)
Synopsis The present volume is the first in the series on the Treatise on Indian Medicinal Plants. The series is likely to be completed in six volumes. Volume 1 covers one hundred and eleven plants which have been classified according to the latest botanical nomenclature and is profusely illustrated, both coloured and black and white, which will help in the proper identification of plant species. The write-up on each plant includes selected vernacular names, occurrence and distribution, botanical description, therapeutic uses and important chemical constituents with references. The chronological development in Ayurvedic system of medicine and its relevance to modern materia medica has been discussed in the introduction. The distinctive feature of Vol. 1 is the inclusion of authentic Sanskrit slokas (wherever available), both in Devnagri and Roman scripts, explaining the therapeutic uses of individual plants. Since the basic concepts of Ayurvedic terms are not literally the same as those used in modern medicine these have been retained in the English translation of the slokas. The explanatory notes of these terms have been dealt with in a separate section. Glossaries of Sanskrit/Ayurvedic and Medical terms have been incorporated and the list of books referred to has been given for ready reference.
