Medicinal Trees : Distribution, Characteristics and Traditional Formulations
Sheelwant Patel
The ‘Medicinal Trees’ compiles information about one hundred tree species that possess substantial medicinal values. It give various local names of species, its distribution, characteristics of plant and traditional therapeutic formulations of its body parts. It mostly chooses such trees that one encounters growing in vicinity–on road sides, in parks, in homestead lands, in waste lands. It endeavours to reinvent medicines into trees that we recognize as fruit trees, timber trees, shade trees, flowering trees and shrubs and even as useless wild growths of waste lands. The ‘Medicinal Trees : Distribution, Characteristics and Traditional Formulations’ attempts to re-invent the traditional therapeutical uses of parts of trees our forefathers had used since time immemorial to cure a hoard of ailments. Through use of roots, bark, leaves, latex, flowers, fruits, and seeds they had perfected a system of medicines that we have almost lost. We know a banyan tree provides excellent shade. Do we know that ‘Banyan leaves cure diarrhoea, nose bleeding, and bubo. Latex cures cracked heels, swollen gums and spermatorrhea. Fruits remove dark spots from facial skins and restore its natural glow and charm. Aerial roots tighten and lift sagging breasts. Bark cures vaginal piles, sprains, burning sensation in body and irregularity of menstruation?’ This publication will serve the interest of medicinal plant lovers, collectors, teachers, medical practitioners, research workers and botantists. ..more

Medicinal Herbs and Spices : Scientific Ecofarming and Technology
Karan SinghMohan Lal JakharDhirendra Singh
Medicinal herbs and spices find their use in all systems of medicine. However, the major part of the raw material requirements of pharmaceutical industries is still met out of herbs collected from wild resources. This leads to biodiversity and environmental degradation. To meet such challenges, an equilibrated approach for domestication and cultivation of otherwise, wild medicinal plants and spices is imperative. Very scanty information on such aspects are available in literature which describes the therapeutic potential of about 20000 plants while only very few (about 100) plants are known to be cultivated. Therefore, there is urgent need of concerted efforts to bring more and more plants under farming system. Present book is pioneer in this regard and describes various aspects of potential agrotechnology of medicinal plants and spices. These aspects embody reliable and latest information on applied biology, botany and genetic resources of annuals, biennials and trees. Applied and basic aspects of ecophysiology, biochemistry and biotechnology have been adequately incorporated including pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, agronomical, breeding and plant protection parameters, propagation and nutrients managements. The subject matter has been judiciously processed and illustrated by reliable data represented in the form of tables, graphs, line diagrams and more than 72 coloured photographs. The book is certainly useful for scholars, researchers, teachers and scientists of variable interests such as Botany, Forestry, Plant Physiology, Biotechnology, Agriculture, Plant Breeding, Agronomy and Horticultures. Organisations and farmers concerning the herbal farming and trade will certainly find the book extremely beneficial in different agroclimatic zones of India and the world. ..more

Indigenous Herbal Medicines : Tribal Formulations and Traditional Herbal Practices
Deepak AcharyaAnshu Shrivastava
Indigenous knowledge behind traditional practice of herbs is like crude diamond, hardest but without shine and not acknowledged and accepted as “Diamond” by the people. Today an artificial shining stone, well packed, aggressively marketed and supported by strategic advertisement is the biggest threat to the existence of real Diamond. If this continues then this phenomenon of endangered indigenous knowledge of tribals will become extinct and needless to discuss, we the human being will be deprived of the real essence and hence the biggest looser. It is important to know that it requires $ 1.5 billion and 10-15 years to develop a new drug, whereas, the development of new drug through traditional herbal knowledge and tribal healers could be much shorter and needless to discuss “cost effective”. The whole book moves around the fulcrum of traditional herbal knowledge of Indian tribesmen. It is the finest attempt to explain the traditional herbal knowledge of Indian tribal regions which are very different in terms of forest, vegetation, cultures, and beliefs. Nevertheless, equally competitive so far age old medicinal practices are concerned. The book deals with about 210 important medicinal plants used by the traditional herbal healers in India. Given vernacular names in English, Sanskrit and many other Indian regional languages, short diagnostic taxonomic description, ecology and distributional aspects provided under each plant and up-to-date information about the ongoing research of every medicinal plant mentioned here makes this book more reader friendly and advanced. Latest accepted and valid botanical names in accordance with ICBN have been adopted for the medicinal plants to sustain correct identity. The book contains more than 2200 traditional herbal practices as per the different disorders, methodology of drug preparation and procedure of intake. Easy language, 90 high resolution colour photographs and systematic presentation of medicinal plants with major emphasis given on traditional herbal therapies, usage, and comparative analysis along with data-tables make the study more exhaustive and generate temptation to read it again and again. It is hoped that it will serve as an informative databank for herbal researchers who are engaged in new drug development; a perfect reference material for Ethnobotanists, Herbalists and Pharmacologists; and a guiding tool for a housewife for home remedies. ..more
