The present book “Utilisation and Management of Medicinal Plants Vol. 2” comprises the vast body of validated scientific data which encompasses a total of 26 original research and review chapters written by eminent scientists and researchers from Argentina, Brazil, Ethiopia, India, Iran, Kenya, Nigeria and Uruguay. The book provides diversified information regarding anti-venom, wound healing, antioxidant, antimalarial, antibacterial and anti-proliferative activities of medicinal plants. Chapters on histochemical studies of primitive and advanced ferns; Process management in herbal medicine research and development; Economic botany of Copaiba oil; Use of Derris and Deguellia to control agriculture pests; Biotechnological products of Amazonian; Chemistry, extraction, quality control and utilization of essential oils; Chemoprofiling of shilajit; Extraction methods and health benefits of nutraceuticals; Processing and protection against UV radiation on hair by Aloe vera will attract attention of the readers. Review articles on Cymbopogon citrates, Phyllanthus niruri, Pimpinella anisum L. and Emblica officinalis are the other notable contributions.
The book will be a landmark and shall hopefully be very useful for those academicians, researchers and scientists who are involved in the studies of medicinal plants and shall find the compendium very useful and indispensable in their relevant research pursuits.
