Still considered the definitive work on medicinal herbs and their uses after two decades, the Handbook of Medicinal Herbs has undergone a long-anticipated revision. In the second edition, world-renowned ethnobotanist James A. Duke provides data on over 800 of the worlds most important medicinal plant species. It contains more species, phytochemicals, proven indications, folk indications, and dosage data than the first edition in a new format that makes them easy to find. The in-depth information, the addition of color plates and over 200 black and white illustrations, and the easy-to-use format make this the most comprehensive herbal resource available.
