Herbs, Spices and Medicinal Plants-Recent Advances in Botany, Horticulture and Pharma-Cology, vol.1.

HERBS, SPICES AND MEDICINAL PLANTS - RECENT ADVANCES IN BOTANY, HORTICULTURE AND PHARMA-COLOGY. VOL 1

Edited by Lyle E Craker and James E Simon A series of studies devoted to herbs, spices and medicinal plants is initiated with this text. Although many plants have been used for thousands of years, very little is known about how they are grown and the real effect they have. The annual trade in herbs, spices and medicinal plants runs is immense, so such information can only help. The sequential volumes in this series will review the latest information available from the many research groups co- operating in this field around the world.

In view of the above, this first volume presents a series of invited papers from the fifteen contributors involved. The titles of their contributions are as follows: An introduction to the scientific literature of herbs, spices and medicinal plants, Chemotaxonomic aspects of essential oils, Botanical nomenclature of culinary herbs and potherbs, Biochemistry of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes of the essential oils, The biochemical pharmacology of plantalkaloids, Plyphenolic compounds with biological and pharmacological activity, Production ecology of secondary plant products, The chemistry, pharmacology and commercial formulations of chamomile, and Medicinal plants of Israel -an ethnobotanical survey.
