Powdered Crude Drug Microscopy of Leaves and Barks Book Review:

Powdered Crude Drug Microscopy of Leaves and Barks investigates various microscopic techniques used in the examination of structural and cellular features in order to determine their botanical origin. These methods are useful in identifying species with similar morphological characters. Today, there is a variety of methods available to authenticate herbal drugs, ranging from simple morphological examination to physical and chemical analysis, and DNA molecular biology. Due to cost, powder microscopy is the most practical method for primary authentication. Botanical microscopy is a unique, valuable, rapid and cost-effective assessment tool, and plays an important role in the authentication and assessment of medicinal plants. This book is an essential resource for students and researchers involved in the study of plants and natural products, as well as professionals in industries manufacturing plant-based products for use during quality control and assurance steps. Provides a fundamental understanding of the macroscopic and microscopic characteristics of crude drugs, including photographs of herbs in their raw and powder forms. Presents specific characteristics and sub-features for identifying barks and leaves, including stone cells, calcium oxalate crystals, starch grains, medullary rays, fibres, sclereids, cork, isolated oil cells, tubular lactiferous canals, phloem parenchyma, masses, rhytidoma, parenchyma and secretory canals. Includes specific characteristics for identifying leaves, such as epidermis, stomata, trichomes, calcium oxalate crystals, fibres, cell contents, cystoliths, lamina, starch grains, tracheids, lactiferous canals and xylem vessels. Demonstrates how the specificity of characteristics for a particular bark or leaf in powder form can lead to its authentication. Features standard operating protocols for preparation of slides and lab samples using industrially operated grinders to observe general as well as distinguishing microscopical characters of barks and leaves.

Handbook of African Medicinal Plants Second Edition Book Review:

With over 50,000 distinct species in sub-Saharan Africa alone, the African continent is endowed with an enormous wealth of plant resources. While more than 25 percent of known species have been used for several centuries in traditional African medicine for the prevention and treatment of diseases, Africa remains a minor player in the global natural products market largely due to lack of practical information. This updated and expanded second edition of the Handbook of African Medicinal Plants provides a comprehensive review of more than 2,000 species of plants employed in indigenous African medicine, with full-color photographs and references from over 1,100 publications. The first part of the book contains a catalog of the plants used as ingredients for the preparation of traditional remedies, including their medicinal uses and the parts of the plant used. This is followed by a pharmacognostical profile of 170 of the major herbs, with a brief description of the diagnostic features of the leaves, flowers, and fruits and monographs with botanical names, common names, synonyms, African names, habitat and distribution, ethnomedicinal uses, chemical constituents, and reported pharmacological activity. The second part of the book provides an introduction to African traditional medicine, outlining African cosmology and beliefs as they relate to healing and the use of herbs, health foods, and medicinal plants. This book presents scientific documentation of the correlation between the observed folk use and demonstrable biological activity, as well as the characterized constituents of the plants.

Trease and Evans Pharmacognosy Book Review:

'Trease and Evans' is an encyclopedic reference work on pharmacognosy - the study of those natural substances, principally plants, that find a use in medicine. Its popularity and longevity stem from the book's balance between classical (crude and powdered drugs' characterization and examination) and modern (phytochemisty and pharmacology) aspects of this branch of science, as well as the editor's recognition in recent years of the growing importance of complementary medicines, including herbal, homeopathic and aromatherapy. no other book provides such a wealth of detail a reservoir of knowledge in a field where there is a resurgence of interest - plants as a source of drugs are of growing interest both in complementary medicine fields and in the pharmaceutical industry in their search for new 'lead compounds' Dr Evans has been associated with the book for over 20 years and is a recognised authority in all parts of the world where pharmacognosy is studied, his knowledge and grasp of the subject matter is unique meticulously referenced and kept up to date by the editor, new contributors brought in to cover new areas expansion of information on phytochemistry - enzymatic conversions, developments in bosynthetic sequences of compounds, newly isolated constituents of plant drugs more information on quality control and standardization herbal medicine - considerable expansion on the role of pharmacognosy in this field; legislative developments; efficacy and safety genetics - the use of DNA fingerprinting for the identification of closely related drugs; new developments in genetic engineering; possibility of GH plant drugs pharmacology - expanded to include plant constituents of recent interest the use of bioassay techniques in the search of new phytochemicals - including sustainable plant resources, ecological considerations and commercial expediency

Aromatic and Medicinal Plants Book Review:

This book covers interesting research topics and the use of natural resources for medical treatments in some severe diseases. The most important message is to have native foods which contain high amount of active compounds that can be used as a medicinal plant. Most pharmaceutical drugs were discovered from plants, and still ongoing research will have to predict such new active compounds as anti-diseases. I do believe this book will add significant knowledge to medical societies as well as can be used for postgraduate students.

Phytochemical Methods Book Review:

While there are many books available on methods of organic and biochemical analysis, the majority are either primarily concerned with the application of a particular technique (e.g. paper chromatography) or have been written for an audience of chemists or for biochemists work ing mainly with animaltissues. Thus, no simple guide to modern metho ds of plant analysis exists and the purpose of the present volume is to fill this gap. It is primarily intended for students in the plant sciences, who have a botanical or a general biological background. It should also be of value to students in biochemistry, pharmacognosy, food science and 'natural products' organic chemistry. Most books on chromatography, while admirably covering the needs of research workers, tend to overwhelm the student with long lists of solvent systems and spray reagents that can be applied to each class of organic constituent. The intention here is to simplify the situation by listing only a few specially recommended techniques that have wide currency in phytochemical laboratories. Sufficient details are provided to allow the student to use the techniques for themselves and most sections contain some introductory practical experiments which can be used in classwork.

Monographs for Quality Evaluation of Chinese Crude Drugs Book Review:

"Today the chemical analysis is the dominant direction of the quality control system of TCM and natural medicines. But it is difficult to measure the quality for TCM herbs by detecting solely the presence / absence of a single or small number of marker components at very low concentration, especially for the herbs derived from mutliorigins and produced from wide localities, as well as those with unknown principle bioactive components. From this standpoint, it is necessary to use multidisciplinary technologies, integrating the morphological authentication and chemical analysis, qualitative detection and quantitative determination, and physic-chemical analysis and bioassay, in order to distinguish the authentic herb from the adulterant, the superior from the inferior, and to improve the standards of TCM herbs. This book includes 60 commonly used TCM herbs, each involving the following items: definition, location, action and indication, description, microscopic identification, TLC identification, HPLC/GC fingerprint identification (optional), assay, discussion and references. It is a valuable reference of quality evaluation for TCM herbs."--
