Fundamentals of Pharmacognosy and Phytotherapy E Book Book Review:

Pharmacognosy (the science of biogenic or nature-derived pharmaceuticals and poisons) has been an established basic pharmaceutical science taught in institutions of pharmacy education for over two centuries. Over the past 20 years though it has become increasingly important given the explosion of new drugs, phytomedicines (plant medicines), nutraceuticals and dietary supplements – all of which need to be fully understood, tested and regulated. From a review of the previous edition: ‘Drawing on their wealth of experience and knowledge in this field, the authors, who are without doubt among the finest minds in pharmacognosy today, provide useful and fascinating insights into the history, botany, chemistry, phytotherapy and importance of medicinal plants in some of today’s healthcare systems. This is a landmark textbook, which carefully brings together relevant data from numerous sources and provides, in an authoritative and exhaustive manner, cutting-edge information that is relevant to pharmacists, pharmacognocists, complementary practitioners, doctors and nurses alike.’ The Pharmaceutical Journal ‘This is an excellent text book which provides fascinating insights into the world of pharmacognosy and the authors masterfully integrated elements of orthodox pharmacognosy and phytotherapy. Both the science student and the non-scientific person interested in phytotherapy will greatly benefit from reading this publication. It is comprehensive, easy to follow and after having read this book, one is so much more aware of the uniqueness of phytomedicines. A must read for any healthcare practitioner.’ Covers the history, biology and chemistry of plant-based medicines Covers pharmaceutical and neutraceuticals derived from plants Covers the role of medicinal plants in worldwide healthcare systems Examines the therapeutics and evidence of plant-based medicines by body system Sections on regulatory information expanded New evidence updates throughout New material covering non-medical supplements Therapeutics updated throughout Now on StudentConsult

Medicinal and Aromatic Plants Book Review:

Before the concept of history began, humans undoubtedly acquired life benefits by discovering medicinal and aromatic plants (MAPs) that were food and medicine. Today, a variety of available herbs and spices are used and enjoyed throughout the world and continue to promote good health. The international market is also quite welcoming for MAPs and essential oils. The increasing environment and nature conscious buyers encourage producers to produce high quality essential oils. These consumer choices lead to growing preference for organic and herbal based products in the world market. As the benefits of medicinal and aromatic plants are recognized, these plants will have a special role for humans in the future. Until last century, the production of botanicals relies to a large degree on wild-collection. However, the increasing commercial collection, largely unmonitored trade, and habitat loss lead to an incomparably growing pressure on plant populations in the wild. Therefore, medicinal and aromatic plants are of high priority for conservation. Given the above, we bring forth a comprehensive volume, “Medicinal and Aromatic Plants: Healthcare and Industrial Applications”, highlighting the various healthcare, industrial and pharmaceutical applications that are being used on these immensely important MAPs and its future prospects. This collection of chapters from the different areas dealing with MAPs caters to the need of all those who are working or have interest in the above topic.

Aquatic Environmental Bioengineering Book Review:

"The remediation of contaminations of aquatic ecosystems is one of the important topics of environmental restoration that is evolving more rapidly. The contamination of water bodies stems primarily from past and present anthropogenic activities and it presently constitutes one of the greatest environmental liabilities for future generations to bear. The significant categories of contaminants usually found in the contaminated sites are halogenated organic compounds, petroleum hydrocarbons, radionuclides, metals and metalloids, pharmaceuticals drugs, microbial toxins and flame retardants. This book provides outstanding about the environmentally safe and economically feasible technologies for treatment of contaminated aquatic ecosystems. The process of remediation of containments from aqua ecosystems involves a phased approach comprising site characterization, risk assessment and remediation technology selection and application. Taking advantage of omic technologies and recent advancement in biotechnology it has become possible to develop novel transgenic plants which are highly efficient in phytoremediation."--

Pharmacological Properties of Plant Derived Natural Products and Implications for Human Health Book Review:

Medicinal plants and their derived products remain as an indispensable source of bioactive molecules that serve as either drug candidates or lead compounds for drug design and discovery. There are several advantages for plant-derived therapeutics including wide availability, diverse pharmacological actions and a generally good profile of safety and tolerability. Over the recent years, there have been numerous reports from clinical studies testifying to the efficacy and safety of medicinal plants and phytochemicals in ameliorating several human diseases. A plethora of basic studies has also unravelled molecular mechanisms underlying the health benefits of herbal medicines. Nevertheless, issues such as identification of bioactive ingredients, standardization of the products and drug interactions remain to be further studied. In this book, we aim to put together several chapters on the medicinal properties and pharmacological action of medicinal plants, plant species and phytochemicals. The goal is to present a comprehensive collection on most of the therapeutic aspects of plant-derived natural products and molecular mechanisms thereof.
