Book Excerpt :

"Following on the successes of two previous dictionary projects, the CRC World Dictionary of Plant Names and the CRC World Dictionary of the Grasses, Umberto Quattrocchi has undertaken this dictionary of economically important plants.... He has done for these plants what was so admirably done in his other works—brought the vast and scattered literature on plant names, and in this case, too, their uses, into coherent order so that the inquisitive scholar can get a foothold." —From the Foreword, Donald H. Pfister, Harvard University and Harvard University Herbaria, Cambridge, Massachusetts The CRC World Dictionary of Medicinal and Poisonous Plants: Common Names, Scientific Names, Eponyms, Synonyms, and Etymology provides the starting point for better access to data on plants used around the world in medicine, food, and cultural practices. The material found in the five volumes has been painstakingly gathered from papers of general interest, reports and records, taxonomic revisions, field studies, herbaria and herbarium collections, notes, monographs, pamphlets, botanical literature, and literature tout court. It includes sources available at various natural history libraries, floras and standard flora works, local floras and local histories, nomenclatural histories, and the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature. Much more than a dictionary, the book provides the names of thousands of genera and species of economically important plants, concise summaries of plant properties, and appropriate observations about medicinal uses. Drawing from a tremendous range of primary and secondary sources, it is an indispensable time-saving guide for all those involved with botany, herbal medicine, pharmacognosy, toxicology, medicinal and natural product chemistry, and agriculture.

Book Short Summary:

With over 50,000 distinct species in sub-Saharan Africa alone, the African continent is endowed with an enormous wealth of plant resources. While more than 25 percent of known species have been used for several centuries in traditional African medicine for the prevention and treatment of diseases, Africa remains a minor player in the global natural products market largely due to lack of practical information. This updated and expanded second edition of the Handbook of African Medicinal Plants provides a comprehensive review of more than 2,000 species of plants employed in indigenous African medicine, with full-color photographs and references from over 1,100 publications. The first part of the book contains a catalog of the plants used as ingredients for the preparation of traditional remedies, including their medicinal uses and the parts of the plant used. This is followed by a pharmacognostical profile of 170 of the major herbs, with a brief description of the diagnostic features of the leaves, flowers, and fruits and monographs with botanical names, common names, synonyms, African names, habitat and distribution, ethnomedicinal uses, chemical constituents, and reported pharmacological activity. The second part of the book provides an introduction to African traditional medicine, outlining African cosmology and beliefs as they relate to healing and the use of herbs, health foods, and medicinal plants. This book presents scientific documentation of the correlation between the observed folk use and demonstrable biological activity, as well as the characterized constituents of the plants.

Book Short Summary:

This third edition of the Handbook of Poisonous and Injurious Plants is designed to assist the clinician in the initial response to the needs of a child or adult exposed to a poisonous or injurious plant. It highlights common and important plants that lead to the adverse effects upon exposure, and it describes the mechanisms of action of the implicated toxin, clinical manifestations, and specific therapeutics, as available, for each. This truly comprehensive resource is botanically rigorous with insights from both the pharmacognosy and medical literature. At the same time, it is also for those who are interested in growing and enjoying the plants in their environment, filling in a not-often-discussed botanical and horticultural niche that goes beyond their beautiful physical appearance. Plants contain many useful chemicals that humans have used for millennia as botanical curatives. This book will help the reader understand the fine balance between a medication and a poison, why plants contain these natural substances, and their impact on the human body. With its thorough references and full-color photos of hundreds of potentially toxic and injurious plants inside and outside the home, this book is useful for identifying and addressing concerns about cultivated species and those found in the wild. This book will be of interest to botanists, horticulturists, clinicians, and naturalists as well as hikers, gardeners, and all those who simply enjoy the wonders of nature and the great outdoors.

Book Short Summary:

“Filled with cool cocktail-party tidbits, Matt Kaplan considers how things that were once the stuff of legends could one day become reality” (The Atlantic) in this fun scientific inquiry into the mystical places and magical objects of ancient and contemporary lore—from the fountain of youth, to love potions, to Super Mario’s mushrooms. Can migrations of birds foretell our future? Do phases of the moon hold sway over our lives? Are there sacred springs that cure the ill? What is the best way to brew a love potion? How do we create mutant humans who regenerate like Wolverine? “In Science of the Magical, Matt Kaplan takes us on a journey spiced with the wonders of myth, history and art, leavened with impeccable research, endlessly fascinating. And the result is both a compelling read and a deeply thoughtful exploration of the world around us and the ways we seek to understand it” (Deborah Blum, author of The Poisoner’s Handbook). Like Ken Jennings and Mary Roach, Kaplan serves as a friendly armchair guide to the world of the supernatural. From the strengthening powers of Viking mead to the super soldiers in movies such as Captain America, Kaplan explores cultures and time periods to point out that there is often much more to these enduring magical narratives than mere fantasy. Informative and entertaining, Science of the Magical is “a sprightly survey” (The Wall Street Journal) and “a joy to read…highly recommended” (Library Journal, starred review).

Book Short Summary:

Aquatic Dicotyledons of North America: Ecology, Life History, and Systematics brings together a wealth of information on the natural history, ecology, and systematics of North American aquatic plants. Most books on aquatic plants have a taxonomic focus and are intended primarily for identification. Instead, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the biology of major aquatic species by compiling information from numerous sources that lie scattered among the primary literature, herbarium databases, and other reference materials. Included dicotyledon species are those having an obligate (OBL) wetland status, a designation used in the USACE National Wetland Plant List. Recent phylogenetic analyses are incorporated and rationale is provided for interpreting this information with respect to species relationships. This diverse assemblage of information will be useful to a wide range of interests including academic researchers, wildlife managers, students, and virtually anyone interested in the natural history of aquatic and wetland plants. Although focusing specifically on North America, the cosmopolitan distribution of many aquatic plants should make this an attractive text to people working virtually anywhere outside of the region as well. This book is an essential resource for assisting with wetland delineation.

Book Short Summary:

The Himalaya has profoundly shaped the cultures of the Indian subcontinent, with many Himalayan peaks considered sacred in Hinduism and Buddhism. Some of the world's major rivers – the Indus, the Ganges and the Brahmaputra rise in the Himalayas. These rivers have abundant seasonal and annual water supply. The mountain ranges and river basins share trans-boundary connectedness. Still, mountain people living on hills have limited access to water for drinking and agriculture. Covering around 27% of the Earth’s land surface, the mountains contribute to the sustenance and wellbeing of over half the human population for water, food, and clean energy. Yet mountains are under threat from climate change, land degradation, overexploitation, and natural disasters, with potentially far-reaching and devastating consequences, both for mountain communities and downstream populations. The book covers interdisciplinary domains of science, humanities and commerce, hence beneficial for all types of readers equally. Promotion of awareness and education on conservation and sustainable utilization of bioresources and strengthening networks, coordination with the help of central government departments, state governments, NGOs and local institutions is urgently needed.

Book Short Summary:

This book provides researchers and advanced students associated with plant and pharmaceutical sciences with comprehensive information on medicinal trees, including their identification, morphological characteristics, traditional and economic uses, along with the latest research on their medicinal compounds. The text covers the ecological distribution of over 150 trees, which are characterized mainly on the basis of their unique properties and phytochemicals of medicinal importance (i.e., anti-allergic, anti-diabetic, anti-carcinogenic, anti-microbial, and possible anti-HIV compounds). Due to the incredibly large diversity of medicinal trees, it is not possible to cover all within one publication, so trees with unique medicinal properties that are relatively more common in many countries are discussed here in order to make it most informative for a global audience. With over 100 illustrations taken at different stages of plant development, this reference work serves as a tool for tree identification and provides morphological explanations. It includes the latest botanical research, including biochemical advancements in phytochemistry techniques such as chromatographic and spectrometric techniques. In addition, the end of each chapter presents the most up-to-date references for further sources of exploration.

Book Short Summary:

This book is a study of three iatrosofia (the notebooks of traditional healers) from the Ottoman and modern periods of Greece. The main text is a collection of the medical recipes of the monk Gymnasios Lauriōtis (b. 1858). Gymnasios had a working knowledge of over 2,000 plants and their use in medical treatments. Two earlier iatrosofia are used for parallels for Gymnasios’s recipes. One was written c. 1800 by a practical doctor near Khania, Crete, and illustrated by a second hand. The second iatrosofion dates to the sixteenth century; ascribed to a Meletios, the text survives in the Codex Vindobonensis gr. med. 53. The contents of these and other iatrosofia are predominantly medical, with many of the remedies taken from folk medicine, classical and Hellenistic pharmacological writers, and Galen. The book opens with a biography of the monk Gymnasios and his recipes and then a description of the Cretan and Meletios iatrosofia. The iatrosophia, their role in Greek medical history, and the methods of healing are the subject of chapter 2. The Greek text of Gymnasios’s recipes are accompanied by a facing English translation. A commentary offers for each of Gymnasios’s recipes passages (translated into English) from the two other iatrosophia to serve as parallels, as well as an analysis of the pharmacopoeia in the medical texts. The book concludes with Greek and English indices of the material medica (plants, mineral, and animal substances) and the diseases, and then a general index.

Book Short Summary:

This book offers a comprehensive and accessible guide covering various aspects of trace metal contamination in abiotic and biotic matrices of an iconic Indian tropical mangrove wetland – Sundarban. Divided into nine chapters, the book begins by discussing the fundamental concepts of sources, accumulation rate and significance of trace metal speciation, along with the impact of multiple stressors on trace metal accumulation, taking into account both tourist activities and the exacerbating role of climate change. The second chapter presents a detailed account of the sampling strategy and preservation of research samples, followed by exhaustive information on sediment quality assessment and ecological risk, instrumental techniques in environmental chemical analyses, quality assurance and quality control, along with the Sediment Quality Guidelines (SQGs). Using raw data, the sediment quality assessment indices (e.g., pollution load index, index of geoaccumulation, Nemerow Pollution Load Index etc.) and conventional statistical analyses are worked out and interpreted precisely, allowing students to readily evaluate and interpret them. This is followed by chapters devoted to trace metal accumulation in sediments and benthic organisms, as well as acid-leachable and geochemical fractionation of trace metals in sediments. The book then focuses on chemical speciation of butylin and arsenic in sediments as well as macrozoobenthos (polychaetous annelids). Finally, potential positive role of the dominant mangrove Avicennia in sequestering trace metals from rhizosediments of Sundarban Wetland is elaborately discussed. This timely reference book provides a versatile and in-depth account for understanding the emerging problems of trace metal contamination – issues that are relevant for many countries around the globe.

Book Short Summary:

Wild fruits play an important role in mitigating hunger in the developing world. As a sustainable and natural food source in rural areas, these fruits have a strong effect on regional food security and poverty alleviation. This makes the utilization of wild foods incredibly important for native populations both in terms of food security and economics. There are many traditional methods for wild fruit harvesting, indigenous tree and plant domestication and cultivation passed down through generations that are sustainable and economically viable, ultimately contributing to a better quality of life for large sections of the developing world. To date there has not been a reference work focusing on the full scope of wild fruits from their growth and chemical makeup to their harvest, distribution, health effects and beyond. Wild Fruits: Composition, Nutritional Value and Products adequately fills this gap, expansively covering the utilization of multi-purpose wild fruits in regions worldwide. Effects on quality of life, food security, economics and health are extensively covered. Over 31 wild fruit species are examined, with individual chapters focusing on each species' phytochemical constituents, bioactive compounds, traditional and medicinal uses and chemical composition. Harvest, post-harvest and consumption methods are covered for each, as are their overall effect on the food security and economics of their native regions. This book is essential for researchers in search of a comprehensive singular source for the chemical makeups and cultivation of indigenous wild fruits and their many benefits to their native regions.

Book Short Summary:

...Causes and Spaces and Temporalities and Viral Pathologies, extremely difficult for man, for the human being, for humanity in general, for Sapiento-Humanity in all its feelings and expressions, all pathologized by pandemics, by ruins in industries and economies, of immense political and social and military and moral chaos, of climatic and natural social and cultural convulsions, of ethical collapses into injustices and hyper-injustices, of financial collapses, of overwhelms of irrationality and over-irrationality, of avalanches of unnaturalness and tsunamis of immorality, which day by day, täglich und stündlich accentuates the sinking and collapsing negations in Kali Yuga of the multiplied and multimedia evils that have flooded the blue planet lately... ...In this historical hour of disasters accumulated and cumulated and amplified and accelerated for decades and decades, especially after the Second World War, World War Two, WWII (20th Century, Period 1945-2021), in these critical moments of planetary destiny, ErdeSternStunde, in these moments of great questioning of the species Sapiens, Erhebliche Fragezeichen der Menschheit, I try, by my own powers, obviously modest, Selbstverständlich-bescheidendekräfte, to revalue, Umwertung aller Werte, through the triad INFORMATION - INSPIRATION - INTUITION (symbolized in the 3IN triad), with the hope of a retreat or revitalization, even partial, to the overwhelming and threatening realities of the present, from this beginning of the Third Decade of the First Millennium, 2021, the Third Decade, of the First Century of the Third Millennium, 2021… Our Mediology, our Multimedia and MultiMediology, is in its essence a philosophy of the triad INFORMATION - INSPIRATION - INTUITION, so a triad of 3IN, through which any information in the sphere of Human Sapient, becomes both creative and developing inspiration, and distributing intuition, realizing the REVELATION OF SAPIENS, therefore, always relating and correlating to the Great Reality of Species or the Great Reality of Sapiens, revealing it, and self-revealing it, therefore all 3IN being correlated to the Big Reality of Species Sapiens, by revitalizing it, by setting its ontological quantum within the big forces of the Universe oneself, through a triad of SELFNESS, as self-organization, as self-regulation, as self-replication... The philosophy of our Mediology (or MultiMediology), which becomes a kind of galleon book of the catastrophic present in Human Sapient, so MultiMediology of Human Sapient will do everything in correlating Cosmology – Biology and Ontology within the sameness of Species, by revealing it by self – revealing it, as a revelation of biology and intelligibility, of matter and light, of spirit and sensations, Geist und Sinnlichkeit... Please, don’t be scared, I’m not a pessimist or an extra-pessimist, I’m not a desastrionist, or a disastrologist, or a sinistrologist or a catastrophologist, or an apocalyptologist or an armageddonologist, because I’m a realist, a moderate optimist, and I think, just a deep rationalist, but what is happening in the world, in man, in human, in Human Sapient, in these first decades of Millennium Three, MNIII, exceed all the limits of normal, rational and balances of morality, all the limitations of common sense and good human conduct or Human Sapient conduct and behavior... ...We are as an individual and a community, clearly entering the world of evil and darkness, the world of dramatic surrealism, reflected by the Hindu theological concept KALI-YUGA, the world of generalized, viral and moral diseases (Covid is the pandemic of immoral human, a pathology of human in all directions, and, the possible sign of a divine revelation), in the world of bacterial and pathogenic diseases etiological, globalized and generalized of Covido-Human, which is the symmetry of ontogenic and psychogenic diseases, from this human reflected in its maximum Human Sapient, naming here man as the over-exploiter and over-exhauster of all planetary sources and resources, namely them fuel, water, air, soil, subsoil, atmosphere, lithosphere and ionosphere, natural fuel fire extinguisher, natural resources, by reaching to the limit of his own self-extinction, of self-flagellating in vulnerabilities, fragility and co-morbidities, all in endlessly collapsing, at loggerheads of Human with oneself... Human Sapient is hitting by its own himself / herself, Human Sapient is self-suffocating and self-disorganizing, developing a severe pathologizing correspondent of the Entropic Being, EntropicsBeing / EntropischeDasein, becoming now, by far, its own first enemy, Homo homini lupus est... The Human, the Sapient-into-Human, is devouring himself/ herself, as in the tragedies of the ancient worlds, exemplified through Ouroburos Sapientic that bites itself in times and spaces, that develops and expands, both in digitization and virtualization, and in its own DeSapientization... ...We have clearly entered into the battles of the Species, the battles of Sapiens, the Moiria / Fatum destiny of Sapiens, in which the human, the Sapiento-homospheres are fighting, are conflicting with the geological lithospheres, with the biological hydrosphere, with the accompanying and orbiting atmospheres and cosmospheres, but with all, in extreme sharpening against themselves. The human being fights primarily with the Sapiento-Human homosphere, so a struggle of the Sapiens within oneself, which also has heights (few, very few), but especially falls, falls and falls, a cascade of viral wars, of military wars, of migratory wars - pathologies all associated with hurricanes of water and fire and terrorism, with earthquakes and volcanoes, with tornadoes and flashes of anger and cosmological, geological, climatological and biological rages, with human catastrophe, by having in this catastrophic center, the Human Sapient, as trigger, as accelerator and amplifier of biological and ontological self-extinction and, threatening the entire biotope and biorhythm of the planet, but essentially threatening itself, becoming the pathological center Corona of the mutant through Delta-variants and the Omicron super-mutant, numbered by the fateful number 8.1.1.529... Oh! You know! It seems that you have appeared on the stage of the planetary world through yourself, synergizing creation and evolution alike, in these CREVO huge complexities, and possibly disappearing from the stage of the cosmo-planetary world, also through yourself, through your self-extinct dramatic destiny!...

Book Short Summary:

Syzygium is a well-known source of the globally traded clove as well as the widely cultivated jambolan, water apple, rose apple, wax apple, mountain apple, and several other underutilized species. These plants have multiple uses as edible fruits, medicine, spice, food colorants, and flavorings. The Genus Syzygium: Syzygium cumini and Other Underutilized Species provides an updated, comprehensive account of S. cumini and other underutilized species from a multidisciplinary perspective. This book covers all relevant aspects including the botany, systematics, phylogeny, life history, traditional medicinal uses, phytochemical constituents, pharmacology, pharmacopeia standards, horticulture, genetic resource conservation, biocontrol, and bioremediation values. It demonstrates how Syzygium cumini and other underutilized species hold great prospect for global pharmaceutical and horticultural trade. The Genus Syzygium will serve as the standard reference for a broad range of researchers interested in the various uses of S. cumini and eight underutilized Indo-Malaysian and Australasian species of Syzygium.
