Dictionary of Synonyms Indian Medicinal Plants: Incorporating an Appraisal of Indian Systems of Medicine

C.P. Khare (Author)

All the medicinal Plants incorporated in “Dictionary of Synonyms: Indian Medicinal Plants” have been studied for their medicinal properties and qualify for further research in modern labs. This work should not be confused with an exhaustive compilation on agro-forestry nor with a detailed document on botany. The purpose is to provide leads to scholars who are well-versed in folk and indigenous nomenclature, but are not able to reach the latest scientific literature, which is being organized by Latin or English names. This work will also serve as a guide to modern scientists who would like to correlate scientific nomenclature with the indigenous one, to understand and make the best use of ground realities for herbal drug development.

In the text, Indian common and folk names have been spelled according to their actual pronunciation.
