Seabuckthorn (Hippophae L.) is a multipurpose shrub or small tree, which grows widely in cold regions of Asia, Europe and also introduced in North America and South America. The plant has potential in health food, cosmetics and health protection and environmental conservation. This fourth volume of the book entitled “Seabuckthorn (Hippophae L.)-A Multipurpose Wonder Plant” has fifty excellent
papers, including case studies and some reviews by experts from several countries like Russia, China, India, Canada, Finland, Romania and Germany etc. The book has been divided in nine sections. The first section on “Propagation and Cultivation” has five papers, which deal with propagation and management practices of seabuckthorn. The second
section has six papers and deals with “Genetics & Breeding” of seabuckthorn. The third section has five papers and deals with “Molecular Biology & Biotechnology”. The fourth section on “Physiology” has two papers. The fifth section “Chemistry & Biochemistry” has 7 papers, which deal with bioactive
compounds like vitamins, fatty acids, carotenoids, flavonoids, sterols, tannins, fatty acids, amino acids and their dynamics in seabuckthorn fruit and leaves. The sixth section on “Pharmacology” has fourteen papers, which deal with the studies on the experimental and clinical trials conducted on the efficacy of seabuckthorn oil and leaf extracts on various diseases of skin, cardiovascular system, diabetes, memory disorders, and wounds etc. The seventh section has three papers and deals with “Processing Technologies” for extraction of juice and oil and development of their products. The eighth section on “Environmental Conservation” deals with the role of seabuckthorn in control of soil erosion and debris flow and improvement of soil. The ninth section “Miscellaneous” has five papers, which deal with studies on the animal feed, pest control, development of seabuckthorn fruit harvesters and morphology of seabuckthorn seeds and pollens.
The book will prove very useful to the researchers, environmentalists, herbal medicine industry,
policy makers and all those interesting in knowing more about this multipurpose wonder plant and harnessing its nutritional, health, economic and ecological potential.

Prof. Virendra Singh, a world-renowned seabuckthorn scientist, is well known for his valuable contribution in the development of science of seabuckthorn in India. He has been working on seabuckthorn in dry temperate Indian Himalayas, since 1993 and worked on various aspects like genetic diversity and improvement, biochemical characterization, selection and introduction of high yielding local and exotic forms and cultivation technologies of seabuckthorn. He is also instrumental in motivating Indian scientists to start research work on clinical and experimental studies and standardization of various health products of seabuckthorn in his own university and about 35 other research organizations of India. Presently, he is Consortium Principal Investigator of Indian Council of Agricultural Research’s funded scheme under National Agricultural Innovation Project (NAIP) entitled “A value chain on seabuckthorn (Hippophae L.)” (1 million USD, during 2008-14), a multi-organizational seabuckthorn R&D programme in dry temperate Himalayas. He is credited with several research papers on seabuckthorn published in reputed international and national journals. He has also edited four books and authored two books on seabuckthorn in collaboration with international experts.Dr.Virendra Singh is a Member of Board of Directors of International Seabuckthorn Association (ISA) and also a Member of Scientific Committee of ISA. In order to sensitize the Indian scientists, policy makers, farmers and private companies, Dr. Singh, along with his team, organized the International Workshop on Seabuckthorn, held on February 18-21, 2001 at India International Center, New Delhi. As Organizing Secretary, he has also organized two National Conferences on Seabuckthorn in 2010 and 2011 at Palampur. Dr. Singh is also Secretary of Seabuckthorn Association of India. He has also chaired sessions in ISA’s Conferences held at Berlin, (2003), Beijing (2005) and Xining (2011). He is widely traveled and visited several countries of Europe, Asia and North America. For his contribution on seabuckthorn, Dr. Singh was awarded “Outstanding Contribution Award on Seabuckthorn” by “International Seabuckthorn Association” during ISA’s Conference on 4th Jubilee Endowment Visiting Fellowship Award” by Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai on March, 8, September 2011 at Xining, China. He has also been honoured with “Golden 2013
