The use of plants for treating diseases is as old as the human species. Medicinal plants continue to play a central role in the healthcare system of large proportions of the world’s population. The history reveals that medicinal plants have traditionally served as mans most important weapon against pathogens. People use traditional, natural remedies for curing different types of disease and even in the next millennium the herbal medical practice will forge as important remedy to treat various disorders. This is particularly true in developing countries, where herbal medicine has a long and uninterrupted history of use. Recognition and development of the medicinal and economic benefits of these plants are on the increase in both developing and industrialized nations. Medicinal plants are treated as a subject of serious study and are undergoing intense research all over the world. The present volume of the book series “Medicinal Plants: Phytochemistry, Pharmacology and Therapeutics - Vol. 3”, has been compiled from as many as 25 research and review communications from the eminent scientists across the world and includes interesting contributions in diverse topics like - Phytochemistry, Pharmacology and Therapeutics of Hemidesmus indicus; Review on Phytopharmacological and Ethnobotanical Aspects of Cassia alata; GCMS Screening for Phytocontents in the Essential Oil of Coleus forskohlii; Pharmacological Approaches to the Anti-inflammatory and Analgesic Effects of Pluchea arguta; Assessing the Beneficial Effects of a Magnolia Extract Supplemented with Phosphatidylserine; Naringin, a Citrus Flavonoid Protects Mice Against the Benzo(a)pyrene-Induced Forestomach Carcinoma; Pharmacological and Therapeutical Profile of Terpenoids; Biological Activities, Phytochemistry and Industrial Potentials of Khaya senegalansis; Phytochemistry and Pharmacology of Portulaca olearacea; Mango Pulp: A Potential Source of Natural Antioxidant and Antimicrobial Agents; Antineoplastic Action of Aphanamixis polystachya in Mice Transplanted with Ehrlich Ascites Carcinoma; Antihyperglycemic and Antihyperlipidemic Profile of Morinda lucida; Anti-diabetic Effect of Ethanol Extract of Stem Bark of Ficus bengalensis; Review on Phytochemistry and Pharmacological aspects of Jatropha gossypifolia; In vitro Effects of Curcuma xanthorrhiza on Glutathione Transferase Activity; Phytochemical Studies on Gracilaria pygmaea using TLC, FT-IR and HPLC; Linseed: A Review on Phytochemistry, Pharmacology and Therapeutic Potentials; Herbal Products as Adjuvants or Biomodulators in Diabetic Therapy; Phytochemical and Histochemical studies on different species of Selaginella; Amazon Piperaceae with Potential Insecticide Use; Cannabis and Cannabinoids: Phytochemistry, Pharmacology and Therapeutics; Nephrotoxicity and Hepatotoxicity Evaluation in Wistar Albino Rats Exposed to Nauclea latifolia Leaf Extracts; Amazonian Medicinal Plants: Current Applications in Dentistry; Radical Scavenging Effects of Alp

Dr. Vijay Kumar Gupta, Ph.D., FLS, London (born 1953-) Chief Scientist, CSIR- Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine, Jammu, India. He did his M.Sc. (1975) and Ph.D. (1979) in Zoology both from University of Jammu, Jammu- India. His research capabilities are substantiated by his excellent work on histopathology, ecology and reproductive biology of fishes, turtles, birds and mammals, which has already got recognition in India and abroad. Dr. Gupta has to his credit more than 100 scientific publications and review articles which have appeared in internationally recognized Indian and foreign journals. Founder fellow, life member and office bearer of many national societies, academies and associations. He has successfully completed a number of research/consultancy projects funded by government, private and multinational agencies. His current areas of interest are histopathology, toxicology, pre-clinical safety pharmacology, reproductive efficacy studies of laboratory animals and biodiversity. He is the Series Editor of the recently published multi-volume set of books, “Comprehensive Bioactive Natural Products (Vols. 1-8)”, published by M/S Studium Press, LLC, USA. He is also Editor-in-Chief of the books, “Utilisation and Management of Medicinal Plants”, “Medicinal Plants: Phytochemistry, Pharmacology and Therapeutics (Vols. 1 and 2)”, “Traditional and Folk Herbal Medicine”, “Natural Products: Research Reviews”, “Bioactive Phytochemicals: Perspectives for Modern Medicine”, “Perspectives in Animal Ecology and Reproduction (Vols. 1-9)” and “Animal Diversity, Natural History and Conservation (Vols. 1-3)”.
