Book Description :

"Following on the successes of two previous dictionary projects, the CRC World Dictionary of Plant Names and the CRC World Dictionary of the Grasses, Umberto Quattrocchi has undertaken this dictionary of economically important plants.... He has done for these plants what was so admirably done in his other works—brought the vast and scattered literature on plant names, and in this case, too, their uses, into coherent order so that the inquisitive scholar can get a foothold." —From the Foreword, Donald H. Pfister, Harvard University and Harvard University Herbaria, Cambridge, Massachusetts The CRC World Dictionary of Medicinal and Poisonous Plants: Common Names, Scientific Names, Eponyms, Synonyms, and Etymology provides the starting point for better access to data on plants used around the world in medicine, food, and cultural practices. The material found in the five volumes has been painstakingly gathered from papers of general interest, reports and records, taxonomic revisions, field studies, herbaria and herbarium collections, notes, monographs, pamphlets, botanical literature, and literature tout court. It includes sources available at various natural history libraries, floras and standard flora works, local floras and local histories, nomenclatural histories, and the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature. Much more than a dictionary, the book provides the names of thousands of genera and species of economically important plants, concise summaries of plant properties, and appropriate observations about medicinal uses. Drawing from a tremendous range of primary and secondary sources, it is an indispensable time-saving guide for all those involved with botany, herbal medicine, pharmacognosy, toxicology, medicinal and natural product chemistry, and agriculture.

Biological Control of Weeds in Australia

Book Description :

Biological control of weeds has been practised for over 100 years and Australia has been a leader in this weed management technique. The classical example of control of prickly pears in Australia by the cactus moth Cactoblastis cactorum, which was imported from the Americas, helped to set the future for biocontrol of weeds in many countries. Since then there have been many projects using Classical Biological Control to manage numerous weed species, many of which have been successful. Importantly, there have been no serious negative non-target impacts – the technique, when practised as it is in Australia, is safe and environmentally friendly. Economic assessments have shown that biocontrol of weeds in Australia has provided exceedingly high benefit-to-cost ratios. This book reviews biological control of weeds in Australia to 2011, covering over 90 weed species and a multitude of biological control agents and potential agents. Each chapter has been written by practising biological control of weeds researchers and provides details of the weed, the history of its biological control, exploration for agents, potential agents studied and agents released and the outcomes of those releases. Many weeds were successfully controlled, some were not, many projects are still underway, some have just begun, however all are reported in detail in this book. Biological Control of Weeds in Australia will provide invaluable information for biological control researchers in Australia and elsewhere. Agents used in Australia could be of immense value to other countries that suffer from the same weeds as Australia. The studies reported here provide direction to future research and provide examples and knowledge for researchers and students.

Book Description :

' This invaluable book provides a readable, introductory text to the fascinating subject of drug discovery from the medicinal plants of Asia-Pacific. A carefully designed layout presents more than 400 medicinal plants, and includes description of compound structure, molecular properties, pharmacology and clinical uses. With its broad scope and extensive compound listings, this is a premier reference source for natural products research using a pharmacological approach. Starting from a collection of plants in the rainforests of Asia-Pacific, Wiart shows how the present state of knowledge fosters a whole new way of looking at the discovery of drugs from medicinal plants. Wiart uses his approach to deal with a remarkable array of fundamental problems: from the phylogeny of plants, to the molecular basis of activity, limitations of phytochemistry, and the possibility of a truly fundamental theory of ethnopharmacology. Written with exceptional clarity, and illustrated by more than 300 original pictures and 400 chemical structures, this seminal book allows scientists and non-scientists alike to participate in what promises to be a major intellectual revolution.

Keywords:Drug Discovery;Medicinal Plants;Asia-Pacific;EthnopharmacologyKey Features:This book offers, for the very first time, a systematic and a comprehensive coverage of medicinal plants of the Asia-Pacific, one of the richest regions in biodiversityIt is a premier source of reference on traditional medicinal herbs and development of drugs from natural resourcesIt provides a detailed and fascinating ethnopharmacological account of over 400 plant species, illustrated with more than 300 original picture, 400 chemical structures, and contains thousands of referencesReviews: “Christophe Wiart has produced a magnificent book covering all pertinent aspects of the potential medicinal plants of the Asia-Pacific Region. Plants (dicots and moncots) are organized by class, subclass, order, family, genus and species. More than 315 species of plants are included in this tome. Botanical descriptions are first given for each family with a general statement of the potential pharmaceutical interest for the family, followed by discussions of the physical characteristics of each species, uses in the region and pharmaceutical interests in the species; the pharmacology, including potential toxicity, of extracts of each plant and an indication of the major pharmacologically active principles, with their structures are mentioned. Photographs and/or line drawings are included for each species … I have never seen such a book that has been this carefully prepared, so botanists, chemists, pharmacognosists, and pharmacologists having any interest in the medicinal or potentially medicinal higher plants of the Asia-Pacific Region, will be satisfied in the book content. The book will be found useful by academic, industrial and government scientists having any interest in the potential of plants as a source of new drugs.” Professor Norman Farnsworth University of Illinois at Chicago, USA “It will be an invaluable resource for doctors, pharmacists, plant scientists, pharmaceutical companies and conservationists in the region, and to all who are interested in medicinal plants.” Professor Nina L Etkin University of Hawaii, USA “‘Medicinal plants of Asia-Pacific: Drugs for the Future?’ offers researchers a strong foundation from which to advance the field of ethnopharmacology.” Professor Elizabeth M Williamson University of Reading, UK '
